Boring animated historical tale
1 June 2004 | by Juni78ukrSee all my reviews

This is not a very good movie. Story can be interesting but it wasn't. It looks only boring, don't funny and predictable both for adults and kids.

Characters didn't very well drawn, sometimes animation looked simply miserably. You can't find here good characters development (like in charming Disney's masterpiece), dialogs sometimes become annoying and stupid. Maybe it was good enough for Spanish viewers and critics (it have won award for best Spanish animated film of the year) but for anyone else I can't recommend this film. Only one good thing, what I have found in this disappointment, was a final song. It was pretty good.

My grade: 4,4 out of 10. You can find a better way to pass 1,5 hours of your life. I was really disappointed.

Sorry for my bad English.
