Far short of the original
27 January 2017 | by dickreesSee all my reviews

While this may be fine for kids, artistically it is so far short of the original Swedish film treatment as to be essentially unwatchable. The crude animation and awkward pacing of the story do no credit to the studio, animators and director. The music is so generic as to be superfluous, competing and clashing with the dialogue. This lamentable effort sells short the intellect of anyone over age 5.

If you can, I strongly recommend enjoying the original Swedish film treatment of this wonderful tale. A wonderful cast, fabulous scenery, seamless integration of live acting and animation provide an engaging and entertaining experience for all ages. The "robbers chorus" is epic enough to compete with the finest opera and not to be missed.

I recommend the story for families with children, but please consider the far better original if you have access.
