Visually impressive, Story disappointing
5 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Have just downloaded Elephants Dream, the first open source project ever made, a year of work and a lot of talk on the net about it. So why is the story completely pointless?? forgive me if I'm missing some philosophical meaning (I doubt it) but no jokes, no insight into the characters, no explanation of where they are or what they're doing there in this big machine, no nothing except a bunch of 3D animation put together. It's visually very impressive and obviously a great deal of work has gone into this project, but without any story it fails to entertain me. If it took a year to make this piece of film, didn't the creators stop to think about the basic elements of what makes a movie? even a short? Am quite disappointed.
