One of Burbank Films Australia's worst
30 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now before I get shot down, I do enjoy a lot of Burbank Films Australia's output, particularly Wind in the Willows and Peter Pan. The Odyssey is one of their worst in my opinion alongside 20000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Prisoner of Zenda. I have always had mixed feelings on the animation quality of the Burbank Film Australia animations, some like Peter Pan are colourful and fluid, others like Three Musketeers look flat and inelegant, and sadly for me The Odyssey's quality fell into the latter quality. A lot of the character designs were stiff especially the facial expressions and the backgrounds had no life to them. The music could've been rousing like in Treasure Island or The Adventures of Robin Hood(for examples) but feels over-bearing instead, while the characters don't convince with the more heroic characters silly and bland and the peril especially the cyclops unintentionally goofy. The voice acting is wooden and perhaps too clichéd. Things are not helped by the rushed pacing and action, hilariously cheesy dialogue("Nobody is Killing Me!") and a story that not just suffers from numerous and unrecognisable deviations from the text but also from a complete lack of thrills, suspense or genuine excitement. Overall, I like Burbank but The Odyssey I sadly quite disliked this time round. 1/10 Bethany Cox
