What a waste!
14 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This video simply fails to engage the intended audience. A big problem is the amateurish songs, which are extremely clunky lyrically and utterly unmemorable musically -- they simply stop everything dead whenever they appear. Not that things were zipping along prior to their appearance, mind you: the story meanders and loses focus, the action sequences are badly structured, and none of the characters engender warmth (Dilly comes closest). The voice actors give it a brave go, and some of the animation is okay, but this is overall a sodden, lumpy mess in desperate need of an actual screenwriter (and a professional songwriter). Tellingly, the writer/director and the co-writer of this piece never worked in the industry again.
