I am on the fence about this film...
27 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

The obvious plus is the fine voice cast; John Hurt, Michael Gambon and Michael York. Alas, they have very little to work with. Do forgive me, it has been months since I saw this, but I do remember Monkey's Tale wasn't a very good film. Kids may like it, but adults will find plenty to criticise here. The biggest minus is the songs, I agree with one of the comments that they are awful,(the sort of thing you'll hear in pre-school) and they come out of nowhere as well. The animation wasn't very good either, it was flat, and there were some scenes where it felt rushed. However, I did like the story. It was a really nice idea, about Kom falling into another world, becoming smitten with a servant, and discovering a plot to overthrow the king. Unfortunately, the voice actors, who are all immensely talented, and the main reason why this isn't a complete disaster, didn't have desperately much to work with. There were times, when it wanted to get somewhere, but never did. I genuinely hate criticising movies, but this movie, while far from the worst movie ever, was very weak in the music, animation and scripting departments. 5/10 in respect to the voice actors.
