Not so good movie as I expected
5 September 2017 | by mickemasterSee all my reviews

I didn't ear nothing about this movie until I saw it in the cinemas and for the rating I saw here I really expected a much better movie. Can't deny the excellent quality of the animation, I really enjoyed to see such a good work, but the story wasn't really so good. The movie is funny sometimes, it made me smile a few times and I think my kids liked it, but I've seen much better animated movies with not so good animation but with a much better story. It's good to see other productions not only from Hollywood but please, don't try to make us think that just a well done animation can make a good movie. Maybe next time.
