Well colour me disappointed. It seems hard to not make a good animated film these days but this film definitely fails to impress on just about every front. The story itself is simplistic and poorly conveyed. I really wanted to like this movie but could not. I wanted to just shut it off and go to bed at about the half-way mark, which I never do. I stuck it out just to be able to voice my honest opinion of it.
Given the calibre of animated film available for over 10 years, any child will have seen far better movies than this so even a child would probably be bored to frustration with this movie. The fact of the matter is simple - the movie is dull and there isn't even sufficient eye-candy via the animation to compensate for that.
On the animation front - the scenery and backgrounds were well modelled and interesting but the character modelling and animation were definitely not up to today's standards.
Overall - I would have a hard time recommending this even for rental. A five year old just might be able to find something redeeming about it but I cannot.
