Hidden treasure!
29 August 2008 | by oldtigerSee all my reviews

I watched "Khan Kluay" aka "The Blue Elephant" English version. This film seems to have receive poor reviews from several people expecting a "G" type Disney movie, but in my opinion it was a very good film. Definitely worth watching at least once. The animation was better then average, even if it was not up to par with the big name releases. It had a storyline that I think would appeal to both adults as well as children. It was not a baby / child movie as your first impression of the cover might lead you to believe.

And despite the lack of blood, it was a story of strength, fighting for good, and of perseverance. It was entertaining, and had a happy ending.
