What can I say about this film? It could have been brilliant, the story line is OK, the setting imagery is very nice, and a lot of detail has been put into it. However, the human characters have a annoying 'Dora The Explorer' nature to them, both crudely drawn in comparison to the settings, and unbelievable in ratio the story line. It turn's a possible classic into a cartoon movie for the under 12's.
Personally, I don't understand why use inferior character depiction when they clearly went to so much effort in the setting and story.
