User Reviews

Absolutley Brilliant on Every Level.
18 February 2019 | by donovandesignSee all my reviews

With a rare and 'biting" sense of humor, this exceptional animated feature came as a pure delight.

Look for those small details, like Red's coat made from the brother wolf that she, uh, killed in a most dramatic way. Sure her wolf coat has those little wolf ears at the top of her red "hoodie, but the two legs and paws that Red uses as a sash belt...well, those are the small details that makes this feature a must see. And watch for the little piggy who owns the local bank! These two well told stories unfold in a perfect and satisfying way with the denouements being as refreshing as if you heard them for the first time.

The voices are tremendous and Dominic West as the Wolf is absolutely superb, as he adds an authoritative and nuanced "gravitas" to the role.

BRAVO, Roald Dah's clever and mature screenplay and and Quentin Blake's magnificent visual realizations!
