If I was six I'll rate it higher but I'm not.
19 January 2019 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Before you base yourself on my ratings if you are going to watch this movie or not there are a couple things to clarify. I watched this movie without reading anything about it before, I just stumbled on this movie and gave it a shot. The problem is not that it's in German, even though it's quite funny to see that all Asians speak German, but the fact that I'm fifty years old and that this movie is made for kids between five and eight. So the whole movie looks and sounds very childish. I have a wide imagination but this one is just too childish. If I were six years old I would probably love this movie, but I'm not, I'm fifty and so this movie is, even if it's well made, just not for me. But if you have kids this movie will get their attention and keep them quiet for a while.
