I only heard about this movie less than a few minutes prior to writing this review. I didn't watch the entire movie. I intend to when I work up the courage, but I just couldn't watch the movie. "Bad" isn't a strong enough adjective to describe this film, if you want to even call it that.

First of all, the textures on the 3D models are just made up of one color each. The eyes have the most amount of detail, and all they are is just a black circle inside a colored circle surrounded by white. No creativity used whatsoever. The models don't even look like what they're supposed to. Same situation with the textures, there's no detail used.

Secondly, does Jim Lion know how movement works? The walk cycles make the characters look like they're boppin' to a pop song playing in their heads. The fire doesn't work like fire. The water doesn't work like water. The horse walk cycle, the flying segments, the lip syncing, the emotions, everything.

Lastly, the actors have no talent. But hey, the whole Dauermann family is here, so I'm going to assume that "talent" wasn't a high priority for them, but "family friend" was.

By now, you might be asking "how the hell do you mess something like this up so bad?". It might be because Jim Lion, the director, writer, narrator, editor and producer, was also the only animator. Seriously. Right about now I'd like to think that this is a college project that accidentally made it onto DVD instead of a possibly better movie. But no, this is real. Welcome to hell, ladies and gentlemen.

Oh, but that's not even the biggest surprise; this took four years to make. And this was the best outcome.

This movie is like an aborted film. Everything about it is awful and, despite being a fan of hilariously awful movies, this is going to be tough for me to sit through. Honestly, the animation is enough to give me nightmares for months.

Give this movie a miss unless you truly can handle it.
