Storyline

When tragedy strikes in the highlands, there can be only one Scotsman for the job - Sir William Sedgewick, aka Sir Billi! This is an adventure story about the power of a remote Scottish, but yet international community held together by the eccentric, skate-boarding veterinarian and their race to save an illegal fugitive - Bessie Boo the beaver! Sir Billi and the village clash with the law in their fight to rescue Bessie! As they brave treacherous ravines and hazardous waters in the battle to save the illegal beaver the question remains - who will get to her first? A roller coaster adventure, Sir Billi is undoubtedly the highland hero with a host of attractive traits. From the stereotypical Bond like characteristics, to a highland grandpa who still has a way with the ladies. His tartan dungarees are often seen navigating the narrow but dramatic highland roads, with a hint of showmanship and significant skill! A heart-warming and hilarious adventure, that takes you to the magical west ... Written by Billi Productions Ltd

Quotes

Sir Billi: Testing, one, two, three. Ah, yes, you can hear me. I have a few words I'd like to say. People, today brought us many things - fear, sadness and, certainly, nervousness; troubled the old ticker at a point or two but most of all, it brought us all together. Ah, with my help, of course. But we could have seen the shadow of death, the trauma of loss and the heartache that would have followed. But as a team, as one united, we learned many things. We saw courage and leadership and we succeeded. Let ...

'You had one job to do.'
25 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These are difficult times we live in, I know, but this is your homeland's first animated feature and I found it almost as radioactive as just about every other movie on the Redbox. I might not be an animation guru but this entire thing has the appearance of an late 80's/early 90's CGI tech demo that was padded with an hour of random material just to make a coherent story. The least they could've done was drawn it in traditional animation, or something closely resembling a television animated cartoon, to spare my eyes from the beguiling character design.

Are those supposed to be badgers? They have realistic eyes for some reason and grossly over-sized cheeks. Nearly every characters looks like that, actually; I've never been to Glasgow but now I'm inclined to believe that's how they see themselves in caricature I guess - everyone looks like a bong. Or a bong with a mustache. And wrinkles.

'Sir Billi' appears to be a story about a loose Sean Connery parody who skateboards around and helps the ugliest of people and animals. In the hands of the right people, this could've very well been an excellent film... but it was given to novices, incompetent people, and although Sean Connery's career is long and historic - you can't help but wonder if the only reason he made this was not for a paycheck, but for a dozen bottles of scotch.
