So Disappointing
5 September 2018 | by lilyloo-79807See all my reviews

I watched this with my child who was so bored she wandered off within the first 20 mins. This could have been fantastic but was ruined by the very slow pace, poor script, poor (read diabolical) acting, lack of good cgi and wishy washy ending. I didn't read any reviews before watching it so wasn't swayed by other's opinions. I had seen the shorts previously and was looking forward to seeing it with the understanding that it was nothing like the Disney version & it was only loosely based on the original Hans Christian Anderson story. How on earth anyone could rate it higher than 3/10 is beyond me, I mean c'mon how awful was the actor playing Locke? My dog could play a better Wizard than this guy and for pete's sake the henchman with the feather, Argh!!, Oh and don't even start on dog boy!! There was nothing breathtaking about the story or the visuals, every aspect was as dull as dishwater. I did however enjoy the song that Poppy Drayton sang, I just don't understand why there was a song at all though, just the one. That makes no sense, surely if the lead sings in the movie then you have a few songs scattered through at least? Or no songs, perhaps the producer just couldn't decide what to do.

VERY ho hum twiddle my thumbs, daytime tv movie stuff.
