Animation good, Plot Bad
17 November 2009 | by Mini_GaneshaSee all my reviews

The plot of the movie is very simple, it kind of reminds me of The Lady and the Tramp parts one and two. It's not because Romeo came from a rich family, but it was the gangs and the dog catcher. The music was pretty good, just hearing it gives you the feeling that it's made for kids.

There were two things that was a huge turn off for me in the movie, one was the way they moved the characters and second was the script. There was something that bothered me with how they made the dogs move, sometimes the arms would look weird and sometimes the facial expressions doesn't really match with the emotion their suppose to do. Like when Romeo's going to howl, he looks like he's just opening his mouth and looking up. There are also moments when the characters are suppose to touch each other (a pat on the head, hug, etc.), they look like they have force fields surrounding them, making it look like the characters are in an invisible ball. Some of the characters look nude, for example, Charlie Anna, he reminds me of a naked Peter Griffin. And sometimes Romeo eye's would look infected.

And the script! I think this is the biggest thing that ruined the film, kids these days don't use the word "dude" anymore. In the movie Romeo uses a lot of slang's from the 80's, I think it would be better if bollywood animators would lay off the "cool factor" e.g. shades, motorcycles, high shirt collar and the Elvis hair do.

The thing that impressed me the most about the movie was the details, the fur, the lighting and everything in between. The way they made the characters unite with their background, like the shadows on their fur and the shine in their eyes. The details on the fur makes me want to buy a Romeo stuffed toy, he's so FLUFFY!!! They fur is the biggest thing that impresses me about the movie. Compared to Sully from Monsters Inc. I would rate Romeo somewhere above Sully in my Fluff-o-meter. I also watched the special features of the DVD where they showed how they modeled Romeo, from the inside out. I like the details of their teeth, when they smile of talk, they don't just show a tongue, and the nose look so dog like, the way they made the wetness of it shine from the light.
