Very good third film.
26 December 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Like the other Robbie Reindeer films, this one is amusing, exciting and has a good length. Though not quite as good as the others, having more spoofs on Sci Fi films than the others, this remains to be hilarious, exciting and pleasant! Robbie and Donner are just about to become married, when all of a sudden Robbie hears a strange voice nearby, calling for him. Interrupting the wedding, Robbie goes off to find the voice and meets an alien who gives him a crystal to help save the world from being blown up by another alien race. Meanwhile, the evil aliens land at the reindeers' "hotel lodge", where Donner is kidnapped by their evil queen! Robbie must do something!! Good for anyone who enjoys short, funny, plasticine films about the fun son of Rudolph! Enjoy "Robbie The Reindeer in Close Encounters of the Herd Kind"! :-) (Funny title, no idea why it's called that.)
