It's like watching a trainwreck, and your childhood's on it.
14 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I feel unclean after watching that hideous example of how greed can ruin the best things. The original movie was a classic. It had great characters, great voice-acting, great writing, great songs , great animation, and a great villain. This just @$$ rapes the original. The characters? Not as interesting. The voice-acting? Way less effort from the cast. The writing? Awful. The songs? Barely any effort. The animation? Not as revolutionary like the first. The villain? Don't get me started on how much they f*cked up with that. This film is flat out insult. There are a few new characters for this movie. A walrus and penguin that are total copies of Timon and Pumba, and Melody. Melody is Ariel's daughter. She does have the same good looks as her mother (about a 7), and her voice-actor does do a nice job, but she just isn't as interesting as Ariel. Ariel is flat out hot (10 out of 10), is well voice acted, and was very interesting. Melody isn't. Then there is the f*ck up of a villain. Morgona is absolutely nothing compared to Ursula. She isn't as interesting, crazy, or as well voice-acted. As for returning characters they really aren't as interesting the second time around. They also do an unforgivable change to Flounder. As for voice acting nobody gives a great performance. All returning cast really don't try their best, and new people aren't good either. Then there is the songs. Just because this a DVD movie doesn't mean that you put no effort into songs. The songs here are just pathetic. In the first few seconds you are plunged into a song, and it is so horrible compared to the original's songs that you feel like you are getting cancer while watching. The second song is an improvement, but still unimpressive. The next is terrible. Then there is the last song which is just as bad as the first. The animation for the time this came out was only one notch above a Disney TV cartoon. Then there is the terrible writing. Everything from the unfunny jokes to the bad song lyrics are terrible. Just no effort. Shame on you Disney. Just because you keep most of your awful sequels from theaters doesn't mean I can forgive for raping my childhood. It isn't as insulting as a theatrical release, but you are still shoving the bird right in my face with this.
