Hard to watch
18 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Claims that this is trying to cash in on the Shrek movie may be true, we thought that was what we were renting. Still, when we realized, we were not disappointed and were willing to give it a try...

Only to be severely disappointed. The story is not compelling, the characters are unsympathetic and ugly in both visage and voice. The animation is weak and odd (and not in the cool good way). We waited for it to get better but it just trundled along in mediocrity. I fell asleep somewhere a little after halfway despite giving it my best. The survivors reported it was as bad through to the end.

I was intrigued to find out it is from France as it did have that vibe that used to come from several foreign-produced cartoons when I was younger (Dogtanion, around the world in 80 days etc). I think it's the way they try and cram the English language into French-animated mouths. Indeed, this may have succeeded more as a traditional cartoon, possibly a series.

To sum up, not worth watching. Go track down the Christopher Walken live-action version. I stumbled on it by accident one day and ended up watching it all the way through, spellbound.
