Frédéric van den Driessche,
Stop motion puppetry is known to most people (in the US at least) from the TV Christmas specials about Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. This film doesn't add much to the field. Stop motion puppetry is poorly suited to action sequences of sword fighting, the dialogue is average and I found some of the voices annoying, and the plot has been stripped down to the bare essentials, which leaves adult viewers wondering about the motivation of all of the characters.
Lest you get them confused, stop motion puppetry does not mean the expressive claymation of Wallace and Grommit. The only facial motion these puppets are capable of is moving their mouths up and down.
