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.

Movie was fine, great animation. Went with a large group of various ages and we all enjoyed the movie. No one is declaring it the movie of the year, but for a Memorial Day animated film we were all pleased.

but as soon as we left he said that he loved the movie and wanted to go back and see it again right then. i thought he didn't watch any of it and wanted to get his chance. that is until he began telling me about the movie. it was good to watch something that caught the attention of my daughter, mother-in-law, and myself. we will probably get this when it hits dvd. oh yeah, we knew nothing about the movie when we arrived. i am happy to say the plot was good. if you watch as much as i do you could see somethings coming. favorite part was watching the dad in slow motion. lol

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!

It was a good movie, not great. Kids were entertained and the plot was interesting enough. This movie might be a little intense for younger 4-7 year olds, so I'd caution there.
One thing with voice acting that bothers me is when they cast people who are let's say casual in life and on screen it doesn't quite match the persona. There may have been a couple of misfires in the casting. Did not care for Beyonce as the queen at all.
