The film is not meant for children or for those who are less serious. Just loosen up your mind and enjoy the famous cartoon series in a whole feature film. The story revolves around the treasure of Colie Baba. Scrooge Mcduck is again on a quest for a treasure. The story is very much predictable, but it is a lot of fun to see our beloved characters.
PROS: Our favorite cartoon characters have come on screen for a feature film and they do have a story to bind the things. The characters are not too many and so the whole film is simple and sweet. Don't stress too much and just enjoy your memories.
CONS: The ending was not good at all. And it was stereotypical of the cartoon series. It could have been given much thought as this was a film. Other than that I found the movie adorable.
MESSAGE: "Evil cannot win after all."
VERDICT: "A onetime watch."
