Euro cartoon film breaks the traditional mold., 26 November 1998
Author: Jason C. Atwood from Suffolk, Virginia

A lot of animated movies suffer from a lack of innovation and an age-old plot, but AARON'S MAGIC VILLAGE managed to turn around the same old tradition. It's adventure-based, but it defines new meaning. It isn't Disney, but the colors are brilliant along with some 3-D animation. Some of the tunes were very melodic enough to go with the humor. I felt the sound effects were annoying, though. They're just like you hear on other TV cartoon shows, making this sound hokey. I'm not a fan of foreign animated movies, but this one is different. Another perfect way to spend time before the big Thanksgiving meal!
