not a Toy Story,,but a very Human story
8 September 2016 | by akomariSee all my reviews

This is not a Hollywood Animated movie, so no need to put it with Toy Story and judge. it is different but in a good way.the artistic texture of the movie is impressive, and yet so (Un-Hollywood) if I might say. each scene is done as it was a classic drawing, a visual joy( the battle scene is simply a cinematic epic. the conversation is very strong and at times it lands on poetry borders. the music is masterpiece, so reflective of the main essence of the movie: the search for freedom. the characters are presented in a clever way,even the villain has his own reasons,no black and white melodrama like most animated hero movies, and the hero was pushed to be a hero, they gave him no other option but to be one. isn't this what happens in real world? in short, Bilal is about a slave who was freed by his faith, and this turns to be much more for him - and for others- than just removing the visible chains..but also about the invisible hidden chains that lie inside and make people their own enemy. Bilal, a NEW breed of hero..and a different kind of movie.
