If you saw the one star I put, it's because that's as low as it goes. Trust me though, it goes in the negatives...
16 January 2011 | by abrown975See all my reviews

This is crap. That is simply what it is. The executives at Video Brinquedo are just a bunch of plagiarizing, no-good, lying, effortless, dirty scumbag hacks and, believe me when I say you'll feel the same way after watching ANY of their films, I would totally laugh if any of them got arrested for copyright infringement and they had to become someone's b*tches in jail. That's how bad ALL of their films are. What's the first thing that comes to mind when I say the names of some of their films: Ratatoing, Gladiformers, What's Up: Balloon to the Rescue, The Little Panda Fighter, and The Little Cars. If you said Ratatouille, Transformers, Up, Kung Fu Panda, and Cars, you're right! They don't even try to hide the fact that they are stealing ideas! I don't know how they do things down in Brazil, but here in America that's illegal. But I might be a little less harsh on it if they bothered to put any effort into ANY of their movies. But they don't. None whatsoever. Here's Ratatoing as an obvious rip-off of Ratatouille. Yes, it's basically the same plot, a rat likes to cook so he owns his own restaurant. But this time it's not in Paris, it's in for some reason Rio De Janiero! WHY?! And if it's there, why are none of the names in Porteguese (or Spanish, pardon me if I'm wrong)? Continuity and congruency are the least of this movie's problems. The acting is bad. That's all I can say, as that's expected. The dialogue is epic crap. The animation is a billion times worse (This makes either that old Legend of Zelda computer game or the paper clip computer graphic on Microsoft Word look like Toy Story). There is nothing else to say that I haven't said already. There is no effort and it makes it look like no one tried. But here's the thing: the atmosphere of not trying is so big that it comes off as if they tried really hard to make it look like they didn't try hard. This isn't anything like "The Room" or "Star Wars: Holiday Special", where everything is so horrible that you need to see it for yourself. This is one of those "Avoid like the plague" instances. I hope Video Brinquedo is terminated and I really do hope that the scumbag executives get arrested for plagiarism and copyright infringement for EACH MOVIE THEY RIPPED-OFF!!!
