Kitten is abandoned, finds its way to a magicians house with other wacky characters, fights against evil man etc. and that's it. This is a movie with standard script without real surprises. Animation quality is good and on par with DreamWorks. But the problem? The movie is boring. Graphics are good but the characters are unforgettable. And the humor is so politically correct that it fails to amuse anyone. I watched the flick with 5 and 9 year old kids and neither laughed a single time. I myself started reading a book after the first 45 minutes.
It's a shame that obviously there's a lot of effort used for the movie, but once again the script would have to be re-done. And next time hire someone who can actually write funny dialogue. And since the movie is European, then please bravely use the an European angle and the Belgium twists for visuals and gags. Now it's just watered down Dreamworks copy.
