A good animation film upon historic Spanish hero
14 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

The historical events in which this story are based result to be the following :

Rodrigo Diaz of Vivar, alias Cid, was a legendary 11th century warrior-hero, he was born in Burgos(1043) and died in Valencia(1099).

Being dead Fernando I succeeded Sancho of Castilla . But Sancho is killed by Bellido Dolfos and Alfonso VI rules over of the kingdom.

In the church of Santa Gadea, Cid ordered to King Alfonso VI swear haven't murdered his brother Sancho.

Cid is banished as punishment. Then, the Almoravides's Spain invasion commanded by Ben Yusuff and defeat of Sagrajas, did the king Alfonso VI forgot the humiliation of Cid and asked him the command of troops against Moors.

The Spanish medieval hero vanquished to Muslims in Cuarte(1094) , Bairen(1097) and Valencia that lost and retrieves.

Cid married Jimena and were born two daughters : Elvira and Sol.

The movie is an enjoyable animation film , fitting partially to historic deeds. The film is quite amusing with emphasis on cartoon spectacle but perhaps don't like little boys because there are a bit violence and strong shots and is more adjusted a parents guide. Direction film by Jose Pozo is nice , Oscar Araujo's music is of first-rate and very spectacular . Production by Julio Fernandez, ruling of Filmax Productions and Fantastic Factory is fine.

Rating :7/10, acceptable. Well worth seeing .
