A funny, but not faultless, return.
19 June 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

This Roadrunner cartoon preceded the awesome Looney Tunes: Back in Action movie. I saw it with a full house and everyone did find it funny (plus it was cool to get a little extra bonus before the movie started). The animation is slick and modern and there are some real funny moments.

The story behind this 'un sees a couple of dueling wizards wipe each other out. Wile E. Coyote comes across one of their spell books and instead of using shoddy acme products to catch the Roadrunner he decides to use a bit of magic. Though some of the timing is off.

I didn't think the joke with the levitating boulder was funny at all and everyone could see it coming. Though the last few moments with the flying horse, the train, the scorpions and the flying shark were hilarious. A series of increasing misfortune making for a great end.
