There are some truly magical moments in this film; but it lacks a wow factor or emotional hook. When it comes to animation I have to compare all of them to Pixar. One big thing I noticed in this film was that the foregrounds are clear, bright and with sharp crisp lines. However, the backgrounds look like they were shot with soft focal lenses. They are not vividly colored, sharp or crisp. It is so noticeable that it easily catches your attention and that's not a good thing. The story is political and I don't like that in a children's film; but that seems to be what Hollywood is now doing to push their messages. When I watched BRAVE and TANGLED I forgot at times I was watching animation and was watching a real movie. Blue Sky animation for some reason does not obtain that level of perfection. I never forgot I was watching animation when I saw this Blue Sky film. I gave this a GO review because it is a good film. It could have been better and I think in the future Blue Sky will improve.

I had my hopes of for this one because there was so many awesome and epic things they could have done with the idea, but they didn't do it. Other then the visuals it was very bland and predictable. Even the characters seemed very bland and seen-it-before. It's worth going to see on a boring day for something to do, but only if you get cheap tickets.

We saw this with our fie-year-old daughter and she was engaged throughout the entire movie. The graphics and effects were fantastic; great character development and charming diagloge makes this a winner. I highly recommend!

This movie had something for everyone! Our whole family enjoyed it, and my kids are ages 4-10. I know we will be buying it when it comes out on Blu Ray!!

My 9yo son says it is extremely epic. My 4yo daughter loved the queen and the beauty of the movie. (The queen is a terrific character for building strong girls.) If you have kids who are sensitive to warfare, it's not the movie for them. I enjoyed the action and the relationship issues between MK and her dad, so I was entertained as well as my kids.
