A treasure, with a lot of fun
4 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay to start things off, after rewatching this again after 4 years, for DuckTales:The Movie-Treasure of the Lost Lamp isn't as good as the show it derives from. The show "DuckTales" is one of my favourites, it is funny, wonderfully animated and has such an irresistibly catchy theme tune, so this movie had a lot to live up to. Really, this is a treasure, that is a lot of fun and I think it lives up to the show very well. My only complaint though is that the movie is too short, if it had been 5-10 minutes longer, I would've liked to seen more of the villain and one or two more of the secondary characters. That said, the animation is very well done, colourful and pretty fluid. And I loved hearing the irresistible and upbeat theme tune playing over the end credits and the orchestral score is nice too. The script is often hilarious, Launchpad I have always found funny but there were times when Scrooge said something that was hysterical. The characters are still their fun and engaging selves, Huey, Dewey and Louie are fun and Webby is adorable. Scrooge and Launchpad both have their inspired moments, and the genie is a nice character. I liked the villain Merlock as well, while gruff and undeniably powerful he is also pretty humorous. The plot was well constructed, reminded me of the early "DuckTales" episodes, and the voice acting is excellent, not only from Russi Taylor, Alan Young and Terence McGovern, but Christopher Lloyd stands out as well as Merlock. Overall, a hugely enjoyable film, not as good as the show, but a worthy spin off movie. 9/10 Bethany Cox
