Beautiful visuals, but dull
20 September 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Pinocchio 3000 is not a bad movie as such, in fact I found the concept quite interesting. It does look beautiful for instance, the colours are plentiful and not too flat, the character designs are not too blocky and the backgrounds are quite detailed. The music is also pleasant, and the voice acting from Whoopi Goldberg and particularly Malcolm MacDowell is excellent. The rest of the film though is rather dull, the story is too thin and very predictable sometimes, and the writing doesn't fare much better sadly either. The physical humour gets tired fairly quickly and the dialogue is rather banal and simplistic. The moral is played in a rather heavy-handed way and while the characters are well designed and voiced the writing disallows them to have any depth to them. All in all, not bad but in a sense a missed opportunity. 5/10 Bethany Cox
