Storyline

Two clans of snakes cohabit in the desert. Beautiful green serpents that live under the shelter of an oasis, protected and venerated by men and venomous snakes that survive in the sand, dust and heat, hunted and killed by the Tuaregs. Here is the story of Ajar, a young venomous serpent, laughed at by his peers because he still has not done his first molt and that of Eva, rebellious princess of the oasis who wants to escape an arranged marriage. These two will meet and fall in love. Alas, Eva will be kidnapped by the Tuaregs and Ajar, accompanied by his best friend, Pitt the Scorpion, will have to cross the ruthless Sahara to save Eva from the terrible fate awaiting her.

Beautiful, but dumb as rocks
26 May 2017 | by Karl RamstedtSee all my reviews

The saying "All flash, no substance" feels like a perfect descriptor of this movie. The painting-like visuals of this movie are fantastic. The people in charge of that definitely deserve some praise for what they've accomplished. Now if only these people could be paired up with some people that are competent at crafting stories.. Because the story is anything but well-crafted. Most characters are extremely underdeveloped and shallow, with motivations being as flimsy as a leaf in the wind. I don't remember a single character in the movie being the least bit interesting; such utterly forgettable characters.

Give this one a skip unless you're tired and just wanna look at something pretty while you shut your brain off.
