Not bad at all
22 October 2015 | by darkghost3400See all my reviews

The book and the Disney version are of course better than this work, but this is not bad at all. It has many obvious flaws, like a simplistic artwork for the main characters, some inconsistencies in animation and the mishandling about Geppetto's earlier attitude. Its animation had scenes with big flaws, like when Geppetto didn't move his mouth when he was talking, a seller smiles before preventing Pinocchio from taking an apple or the scene at the Fairy's house which supposedly happens at night but there is a blue sky with clouds. However, the animation was mostly decent, had some fluidity and good drawings. The opening melody was beautiful.

The voice acting is very well done for a movie of this caliber, although Mangiafuoco's voice sometimes felt overacted. Among the characters, Pinocchio and Geppetto bring some sympathy, the cricket is not equal to his Disney counterpart but is okay and the Fairy is likable.

Aside from Geppetto's attitude of not getting surprised about Pinocchio being alive and to some extent Mangiafuoco's scolds to Pinocchio, the script is well written, avoiding the pitfall of weakening the story. The most positive thing about this movie is that it is not only entertaining, but also it has successful emotive moments, with some fun, sadness and heartwarming. This is the reason this film earns my respect.

It is not the best adaptation of "The Adventures of Pinocchio", but it has its positive things.
