Alternate Versions

When the film was originally released in Germany, the dubbing was highly criticized for adding lowbrow humor. To rectify this, distributor Capelight ordered a new dubbing (which reflected the original tone of the movie) and the film was re-released (with both dubbings) on Blu-ray/DVD. See more »

By far not as bad as expected :-P
22 April 2017 | by arendmaatkampSee all my reviews

I just wanted to give it a try and I only skipped through 1 or 2 conversation scenes. I really liked the characters. The story line was a bit thin, but that's not really an exception in this genre.

The CGI really surprised me in a positive way :-) they brought a lot of interesting things in this department.

Watching it didn't feel like a total waste of time.. so that's a win.
