Badly Done
22 February 2008 | by (Cambodia) – See all my reviews

The faults of this film are many. For starters, what could have been an interesting story was completely wrecked by bad delivery. The animation is choppy and the timing is badly directed to the point of confusing rather than supporting the story. Long pauses and unnecessary scenes contort the plot until it takes physical effort to sit and watch. Vocal talent is OK, but the voices are wasted on mediocre music writing and weird songs: songs memorable only for their strange lyrics. And while the music is bad, the sound effects are horrible!

All in all, this movie isn't worth the money it costs or the time it takes to watch it. I can imagine really, really little kids enjoying it some, but anyone older then 3 will find this movie extremely boring. Life is too short to waste it on things like this!
