We follow the hilarious yet moving adventures of Renart in this animation, as he shows how a quick mind can triumph over brute strength. The wily fox is an outlaw at odds with the laws of his society and has a liberal attitude to the property of others. But his motive is well intended.

Great for the kids, good for everyone else who likes these sorts of films.
7 August 2010 | by marksmith16See all my reviews

This film is one of those that I would imagine I'd have enjoyed a lot as a child. The animation is by no means world beating, but it is above average and the characters are all very likable. Some of the scenes are also surprisingly dark for such a bright and colourful adventure too, but it doesn't push the boat out too far.

Although the story is simple and straightforward, it was able to keep my attention held and I don't think it dragged on. The only real fly in the ointment was the 'Kung Fu Fighting' music number at the end, which did seem a bit random and out of place - but the use of that song certainly didn't rip off 'Kung Fu Panda' as this film came out several years earlier.

Overall, if you are a fan of cute animated films with animals as the characters, then I recommend you check out this film. Or if you are a parent of young children, I think it is definitely worth considering letting your kids watch this.
