This movie sucks. Well firstly the movie does bring some Eco-Friendly points, but uh I will list my good and bad.

The Good: The best thing about this movie is the quality of animation. One example is the scene of Blue Whales, to show the quality. And it isn't WAY better than other films, but this was not Pixar. A secondary point is it is Eco-Freindly, and I am not too big on such things but generally? Yes. It has some humour that is good for kids but do not get too big on that.

The NOT Good: You know when I said this was not Pixar? Well that was not a blessing at all, but in a way A TOTAL curse.
Some seances, like when The Bull vs Rhino fight look as if they had been written by some Greenpeacers on whisky. No offense, but those scenes are BAD. And the graphics are good, but not TOO great compared to the standard and absolutely don't really make up for the horrendously written and vapid storyline. I don't know about you, but I hated its Anti-Human sense too, why the hell can we not have something more truce type? And I am sorry, but one scene where the Animals blow up the Dam is just basically a promotion for Eco-Terrorism. If you think I am just talking nonsense, kids will be like "Aw, the animals, let us blow their dams!" And it should not be like that. It is too Anti-Human, and that does not really say "Save the environment" at all, apart from a FEW points.


Overall: It is well animated and has good graphics, but the rest is junk and is not GREEN. If then what is the point. It is an inconsistently written, poorly thought out film that is Anti-Human. Call it "Badagascar"

14% out of 100.

full marks to Animals United's marketing campaign as I felt compelled to go and see this with the kids. It was possibly the worse film i have ever seen. I think the kids laughed once or twice - when asked what they liked about the film they couldn't put their finger on anything in particular. What an expensive waste of a few hours of our lives.

Don't go and see this if you are expecting anything along the lines of Madagascar, Ice Age etc. Actually do, because there's bits of both of them and others which makes for a rather confusing bunch of characters and a weak story line with poor translation into the English language hence a stilted script. Well meant and the graphics are great but this does not make up for the slow pace, humour that does not hit the mark and a very unmemorable film.

Film of the Week

The Conjuring (15)

Hugely enjoyable, genuinely scary horror flick that provides a welcome throwback to classic 1970s chillers, thanks to impeccable production design, a superb script, powerfully atmospheric direction, intense set-pieces and terrific performances.
