Storyline

Tak is given a staff, the "Power of Juju", and instead of using it responsibly, he's often than not using it to make his workload from Jibolba easier or to solve a problem. He hangs out with his friends, avoids doing chores, takes any glory he can get, and learns his lessons the hard way. Despite it all, his intentions are usually pure. He's branded as a fool, a coward, and a cursed boy despite his heroic efforts when he's helping his fellow tribespeople, especially from Lok and Chief. Jeera, his best friend, does the same at times, but she's just as wild as Tak is.

For me, this is one of Nickelodean's worst
10 July 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I love Nickelodean a lot, I grew up on the likes of Rugrats, The Wild Thornberrys, Angry Beavers, Ren and Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life, and I liked Spongebob Squarepants before it for me lost its appeal. Tak & the Power of Juju is one of my least favourite Nickelodean shows, not as bad as ChalkZone and Fanboy and Chum Chum, but in all honesty the only show of theirs in recent years I genuinely loved was Avatar:The Last Airbender.

I have not played the games, but know the basic outline of them. Regardless I always try to judge a series/film on its own merits, which is what I am doing now. I do really dislike the animation here, the backgrounds are rather dull, the colours flat and the character designs out of proportion and unpleasant to look at. The music didn't do much either, at best it was forgettable, at worst it was repetitive, the theme tune especially is quite grating.

The writing is poor, with stale jokes and dialogue that feels forced and unfunny, while the stories are uninvolving and lacking in any excitement. The characters I don't care for either, Tak is for me the most irritating Nickelodean titular character and the villain had potential but due to him being underused and underdeveloped this potential isn't lived up to. The voice acting consists of talented actors no doubt, but the voices themselves are annoying, at least to me.

All in all, a weak show and one of Nickelodean's worst. 1/10 Bethany Cox
