Editorial Reviews

In the African savannah, all of the animals are wondering what happened to the water. Billy the Meerkat and his best buddy, Socrates the Lion set out in search of water, with the help of their friends Angie the Elephant and Giselle the Giraffe. On their incredible journey to find the water and to save their family and friends, they run into a motley group of animals new to Africa: rooster, polar bear, kangaroo, koala, Tasmanian devil and two turtles, who join them for the adventure. The animals discover that the water is being held for a human luxury resort. So, they decide to unite and call on all creatures large and small to fight back. It's a true call of the wild for an action-packed African adventure full of family fun!

Seriously, if you are offended by the idea that the environment is being polluted and manipulated by people, avoid this film. Animals United is nothing more or less than another mediocre animated film with high aspirations.

The good: Bits of satire and a few characters that work well. The film has a good score, and achieves some dramatic and fun moments as well as a few visually impressive scenes. Probably will keep your kids entertained. But not you.

The bad: Disjointed plot tries to preach a bit too much. The English dub probably destroys what humor and wit there once was in the film. The voices often seem at odds with the character's expressions and movements, and like most European kid's movies, no option for watching it in the original language with subtitles is offered. Many stereotypical characters. Like way too many kid movies, it tries to surf on tried-and-true character and situation themes, leaving you with a sense of déja vu.

The Story.
A group of animals have lost their homes. A polar bear was displaced due to the ice floes melting, a pair of ancient Galapagos tortoises find their island slimed by an oil spill, a very French rooster escapes from a sadistic chef, and a kangaroo and flatulent Tasmanian devil must leave Australia because...um...motorcyclists burned the desert (I think.)

They end up in Africa later, where they meet the hero of the story (and thereafter become mostly irrelevant.)

The hero is a typical character--a meerkat who is kind of a screwball and slacker, and whose son thinks he's a loser. (Whopping cliché #1) His best friend is a lion who became a pacifist and vegetarian after a hunter shot his brother. So, anyway, one day they notice there's no more water in the water hole.

This was a good 3d film that was only released in Europe, It didn't have the money of the u.s animated films but it's still not too bad.
The story is a good one with environmental overtones, However , considering the world is in dire straights with growing deserts due to mans deforestation and pollution , that is not a bad thing. This is not on the level of a U.S. made film in many regards, but if you have a all region 3d blu ray player you can watch it that way or in 2d if you wish. I collect 3d films and so I was glad to add this to my collection. Being a animated film it has no ghosting , which is a problem with active 3d glasses on some 3d films. Animated films rarely have that problem though. A all region 3d blu ray player can be bought on amazon.com. the orei is a good one. This will play blu ray films from any region (3d too) , and any dvd from any region as well.

I love animated movies, especially with animals. Unfortunately no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't bring myself to like this one. There were way too many problems. The anti-human, global warming sentiment was very heavy handed. Speaking as someone who believes we should take care of the planet, I felt that they could have been more graceful about working the message into the story. It just made it cringe-worthy at best, especially when one of the elderly turtles starts going on and on about it for several minutes. I guess it was supposed to be poignant but just felt forced.

The message aside, the movie had many other problems. The animation is not so great. I have seen people stating how wonderful it is here. I am curious if they have seen some of the more recent animated films. It's possible to make some amazing looking character and scenes. I realize that this movie is a few years old, but still, some of it looked more cheesy than real (even for a cartoon). I couldn't put my finger on it but when the bison spoke there was something distractingly unnatural about the mouth movements that was almost disturbing.

Then there's the dialogue. It was painful to listen to at times. The little monkey mascot character was probably one of the worst. I wonder if they had actual writers coming up with the lines or if someone just threw something together to finish the film. The rooster's accent was also cringe-worthy.

It really wasn't funny, either. And I noticed some elements borrowed from other films. I am still not sure if that was an obvious nod to those films or if it was an attempt to steal the ideas/techniques subtly.

My two year daughter loves it, and she asks for it every day. That being said, her taste in movies sucks, so don't trust her. It's unbelievably awful. Everything about it is bad, the story, characters, voice acting, animation. There's not one ounce of humor in the whole movie.

Animals United is not just a bad film (If it can even be called that. Trash is a better word for it). It is a bad bad film. It is so atrociously, unbelievably bad my stomach churns within me as I write about it. As I watched it (not willingly of course) my gut heaved and roiled, my ears shriveled, and my eyes twitched in nervous spasms.
I could tell my brain cells were committing suicide, one by one, as I watched this. So I left the room and screamed. I buried myself in Lawrence of Arabia for 4 hours.

Why this garbage is bad:
1. Awful animation. Really, it looks fake, computer generated, ugly, and at times disturbing. It's not just a disgrace to CGI, it's a disgrace to computers itself, to humanity, to the animal kingdom, to the bloody universe!
2. The story, portraying man as evil, disgusting beasts, and animals as the rulers of the world. Not appropriate for children.
3. The humor: crude, trite, tasteless, and shallow. Pass on this; it's not even worthy as toilet paper.

If you are a self-respecting human being, who loves their child, don't show this to them, don't buy it, don't even look at it. In fact, whenever you see a copy of this utter rubbish, spit on it. The world will be a better place without it. How a talented cast ever signed up to do this crap is beyond me. Maybe they were drugged or something.

So please, DON'T BUY THIS JUNK. Animals United gets ZERO stars.
