In a lovely garden on a peaceful afternoon, two frogs vie for same butterfly, a harbinger of what's to come. At a grand manor, a woman in elegant dress with ample décolletage is courted by a two gentlemen, the Marquis de Malstrumpet and Sir Dingleberry. They spar verbally, argue over the food and drink, knock her about without noticing, and then escalate to a full-fledged dual between two gigantic robots that each pilots from inside the helmet. Destruction reigns supreme across manor and garden. Will there be a last man standing? And what about the lady? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Amazing animation considering the source...
26 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Blur Studio is definitely not one of "the big boys" of computer generated animation, such as Dreamworks or Pixar. Despite mostly doing work for computer games, they've produced a few short films such as GOPHER BROKE (which was nominated for an Oscar) and this one (which probably should have been nominated). So far, the animations I've seen them produce are top-rate--of exceptional quality and artistry. A GENTLEMEN'S DUEL is no exception to this artistry--being a product that can compete with any other studio.

The film begins with two gentlemen arguing over a voluptuous lady. Considering the title, it's no surprise when this degenerates into a duel, though how they did it was a shock! Though it appears set in the 19th century, they get into giant mecha-robots that are steam-driven and proceed to have a battle reminiscent of TRANSFORMERS!! In the process, they destroy much of the lady's mansion and nearly kill her again and again.

A funny and cute film, the only reservations I have about the film at all are its occasional adult content. There are numerous references to the lady's huge breasts and the ending is a bit sexually suggestive--so I don't recommend this for young kids.

This film is one of the bonus shorts included with the wonderful DVD "A Collection of 2006 Academy Award Nominated Short Films"--a must have for fans of the genre.
