Pretty poor CGI animated movie, but younger kids will love it
17 February 2018 | by cbridgemanartSee all my reviews

It's traditional in most movies to have what's called a colour palette, a finite range of colours which sets a mood and makes it easier on the eye, this movie eschews this tradition. Its standard of computer graphics reminds me of old Playstation FMV scenes that played out inbetween the game play, the look mainly reminds me of Spyro.

The animation itself isn't that bad, but it has that unsubtle mime-like kind of motion where everyone ducks, shrugs and gesticulates on every syllable. The camera floats from point to point in every scene. The voice acting often has that sound LIKE someONE reading FROM a SCRIPT with no IDEA about conTEXT or APPropriATE emphaSIS for THIS bit, but they can do a funny voice or three, or four, or five.

The story itself is a reasonably well paced paint by numbers male tweenager pleasing tale of going on a journey of self discovery, a 'child becomes a man' type fantasy adventure, with pretty standard stuff about defeating evil and the school bullies and showing the world it can't be the boss of you, with the monster angle being used as an unsubtle analogy for adolescence, and of course by the end the now obligatory single parent learns to trust more and promises to try harder, everybody hugs, hearts are warmed.

End with an upbeat pop song and a wink to camera, roll credits.

It's all perfectly watchable, it just isn't trying very hard.

Kids will love it.
