Fun kid's movie
26 August 2010 | by prgeyerSee all my reviews

I have never seen the original cartoon version of Wickie, so I had no idea what to expect when I bought this movie for my 4 year old daughter. From the first time watching it, she loved it. The great thing is, my wife and I loved it too. As other reviewers have said, the plot is not the strongest part of this film. But the cast is excellent, especially Guenther Kaufmann as a deliciously evil and over the top Sven, and the production is beautiful. Perhaps the highest praise a film can earn, my daughter forced my father-in-law, who speaks no German whatsoever and is impatient with things that he doesn't like at the best of times, to watch Wickie. Not only did he not complain, but when we were all called to dinner, he wanted to stay to watch the rest of the film. High praise indeed! I have heard rumors that they're filming a sequel. We sure hope so. My daughter is eager to follow more of Wickie's adventures.
