Trivia

The bird Belzoni never talks, but he is capable to communicate using show-bill. It's a nod for infamous Wile E. Coyote (Looney Tunes' character who prosecuted Road Runner), who either never talked but used show-bill to talk to camera. See more »

It's inoffensive and sometimes fun fluff, but its charm wears off eventually.
12 February 2018 | by Pjtaylor-96-138044See all my reviews

'Tad Jones The Lost Explorer And The Secret Of King Midas (2018)' starts off as a bit of an in-joke, with pretty much every slightly ill-translated line and off-kilter piece of bouncy animation serving to further add to the piece's odd, cobbled-together and just-a-bit misinformed charm. That all wears off fairly quickly, though, once the flick gets into its repetitive and pretty boring second act. Here, it constantly aims to remind you that the little bumps you previously thought were quirky fun are actually still culminating to that nagging pain you're starting to feel. It's not a particularly bad feature, however, in fact it's quite entertaining until it starts to run out of steam. The piece is also surprisingly 'edgy' for kids stuff, considering that it certainly skews supremely young, but its strange that its core narrative conceits concern things that will be totally alien to children (love triangles and someone being 'out of your league', to name a couple.) It heavily relies on the fact it is a sequel, too, despite not being marketed as one (at least not in the U.K.), leading to some huge leaps in logic which really do take some suspension of disbelief even within the slapstick world that's set-up. Its inoffensive and sometimes fun fluff, but it does get quite tiring once its charm has worn off. 4/10
