Okay for children-- older ones, not so much
16 September 2017 | by SnootzSee all my reviews

Two disclaimers:

1. I am a bit older than 8

2. I didn't make it past 12 minutes of this film...

... after which I skip/jumped through it to see if it showed any sign of improvement. Sadly, it didn't.

I like to give family films some leeway and the benefit of the doubt, because they can provide fun entertainment as well as teach values, ethics and other really good things.

All of which this film probably does. I'm not sure because by 12 minutes my chin was hitting my chest. This is a film definitely aimed at children. From the highly-predictable script to the clunky unfinished animation to the obviously-recorded-in-a-studio voice track to the snoozer plot line and physical gags... this movie is Saturday morning fare stretched to an hour and a half.

If you watch the trailer you will get a very good idea whether you might enjoy this film or not, as it pretty accurately portrays what I saw of the film. The good thing about it: it does let us know early on whether or not we want to invest any more time into watching it. I should have stopped at the barrel juggling, but pushed myself on another 5 minutes. Trust your gut early on this one. As a film to keep young ones entertained it's probably fine. As a "family film" (for the entire family) it's probably not going to deliver.
