"Not now son, I have a war to declare"
17 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do like a vast majority of the Golden Films. There are some I love like Thumbelina, The Little Mermaid, Pinocchio, The Three Musketeers and The Princess Castle, some I do like very much like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Sinbad, some I do't care for like Anastasia and Pocahontas and some I dislike like Tarzan and the Apes and The Jungle King.

Gulliver's Travels is one of the ones that I liked very much. It is not quite perfect, the character designs could have done with more fluidity and the Prince and Princess characters are rather bland. On the other hand, the backgrounds are very bright and colourful, the song about the pasta is very catchy stuff and the classical music choices like Offenbach's Can Can, Schubert's Trout Quintet, Ponchielli's Dance of the Hours, Grieg's Hall of the Mountain King, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, Tchaikovsky's Pathetique Symphony are wonderful and are incorporated very effectively(especially the piece that sounds like Mozart on the beach). The script is funny and not too simplistic and childish, and the story goes by swiftly and has its charm, the idea about the feud about the types of pasta was quite cute although I am certain that was not part of the original story. The King(Bassel is it) is a humorous character with some of the best lines, and Gulliver is one of those brave and wise characters that you can relate to. The voice acting is solid, the Princess' father's voice did sound overdone but Bassel is very exuberantly voiced and Gulliver's matches the character perfectly. Overall, I liked it, maybe I prefer the 1939 animated version and it is perhaps not the most ideal adaptation(though with Golden Films you don't expect that, and in a sense needn't do) but this is a charming version that shouldn't be pre-judged or scorned at.

7/10 Bethany Cox
