Daisy Quokka is a simple film when you get to the nitty-gritty of it. A quokka named Daisy sets out to prove herself on the world stage (in this case, an American Ninja Warrior style animal Olympics), while also trying to rejuvenate her down-on-his-luck idol, Frankie Scales (voiced by Sam Neil), who is one of the best parts of this mediocre film. Pretty simple stuff for a kids movie, with a cliched message of "always follow your dreams and never give up" to boot.
While the writing does leave things to be desired (be prepared for 2 major info dumps in the first 30 minutes or so), the animation is remarkable for a independent studio, and the voice talent does do a pretty good job carrying this movie
Sure it's cliched, and sure it's less than what you'd find from your average Disney or Dreamworks motion picture. But for a kids movie, and a independent one on that? Not a half bad way to waste 88 minutes with your kids. There's worse out there, that's for sure.
