Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Delgo is a computer-animated film that is at once fantasy, action, and drama, with an added dose of comedy. The most amazing thing about the film, besides the fact that it was 10 years in the making, is its rich graphic rendering of a world that's unlike any other. The backgrounds have an almost painted quality and the contrast of the stark, resource depleted planet of the Nohrins and the natural, dreamlike world of Jhamora is striking thanks to intense color saturation and an impressive level of visual detail. Despite its uniqueness, Jhamora is plagued by an all-too-common conflict rooted in the cultural and moral differences of its two peoples. This epic story follows two young teenagers, Nohrin Princess Kyla (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Lockni Jhamora native Delgo (Freddie Prinze Jr.), who share a common dream of cultural acceptance and cooperation as they fall into friendship and then love. Exiled Nohrin Sedessa (Anne Bancroft), who was banished from Jhamora for killing King Zahn's (Louis Gossett Jr.) wife (Princess Kyla's mother), and General Raius (Malcolm McDowell) kidnap Princess Kyla--an event which leads to Delgo and his bumbling friend Filo (Chris Kattan) being imprisoned for the crime and incites war between the two peoples. Can peace possibly return to Jhamora without the total extermination of either the Nohrin or the Lockni people? Battlefield action on the ground and in the sky is intense and omnipresent throughout the film and the story is interesting, if not original, but the animation is at times rather choppy and almost video-game-like and somehow the film just isn't all that engaging. Bonus features include commentary with co-writer and producer Marc Adler, co-director and co-writer Jason Maurer, and animation and visual effects supervisor Warren Grubb; a behind the scenes look at how the voice talent shaped the film's characters, a featurette detailing the composer's and sound designer's thoughts about the sounds of Delgo; meet the characters and creatures functions, and six deleted scenes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Archetypal Meets Extra-Terrestrial December 19, 2008
Many will complain about the lack of originality in "Delgo." Indeed, it's an archetypal fantasy story about a young, reckless hero, a wise elder, a damsel in distress, a wicked conqueror, and above all, a battle between good and evil. The only thing about this film that's original is the look, with typically medieval settings pushed aside in favor of a completely fictional, computer-generated alien planet called Jhamora. The characters are anything but human; they're divided into the amphibious Lokni people, the winged Nohrins, and an assortment of other strange beings that would pass for animals on our world. The pallet reminded me of the colors you'd see swirling on the surface of a soap bubble, bold shades of purple and green and blue with hints of red and orange. The visuals of this movie are so thoroughly extra-terrestrial that I find it hard to criticize them. I thought they were great to look at.

As for the story, yes, it follows a very well established formula to a tee. But did anyone complain about the lack of originality in "Star Wars," which was also about a young, reckless hero, a wise elder, and everything else I listed earlier? What about the "Lord of the Rings" saga? Or "The Chronicles of Narnia"? Or "Beowulf"? Poking holes in an archetypal story is pointless, in my opinion. If you don't agree, then you probably never liked such stories to begin with. All I know is that "Delgo" achieves exactly what it wanted to achieve, and because of that, I was able to look past its shortcomings and just enjoy it for what it was. The only thing I wondered about was how long ago it was made; it features a vocal performance by Anne Bancroft, who died in 2005. It seems a little odd that this movie was delayed for so long.

4.0 out of 5 stars An old story told in a new way May 28, 2010
Format:DVD
This movie might almost be called "Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope (1977 & 2004 Versions, 2-Disc Widescreen Edition) in all-digital form;" as other reviewers have pointed out, it has many of the latter's elements--a naive and reckless young hero, a wise mentor, a mystical system of beliefs and battle skills, a traitor, and a far-distant setting. The planet Jhamora is inhabited by two races, the "barbarian" Lochni and the highly civilized, four-winged Nohrin, who uneasily share what's left of its space after the Nohrins' original country became uninhabitable some 20 years ago. A Lochni youth, Delgo (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), unexpectedly meets the Nohrin princess, Kyla (Jennifer Love Hewitt), and is drawn into a plot by her exiled aunt Sedessa (Anne Bancroft) to seize the throne from her father, King Zahn (Louis Gossett, Jr.), and destroy the Lochni once and for all. To thwart her, Delgo and his friend Filo (Chris Kattan) must free Kyla from her aunt's clutches, expose Sedssa's connection to the king's trusted General Raius (Malcolm McDowell), win over the loyalist Gen. Bogardus (Val Kilmer) to their side, and cope with the hazards endemic to their world, and Delgo must master the mystical training he's been getting ever since his parents were killed in the last Lochni-Nohrin war and he was taken in by Elder Marley (Michael Clarke Duncan).

Created totally by computer, the movie's best part is the sheer strangeness of the world it portrays, a strangeness leavened by the humanoid appearance of the Lochni and the Nohrin and by many of their artifacts (Nohrin architecture has a decidedly Art Nouveau look about it).

5.0 out of 5 stars demo quality blu-ray October 6, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have said, Delgo is a nice fantasy - princess/hero/villain - you write the rest. What makes this worth buying is the art work, the color and the precision of the graphics, especially the battle scenes. I watched it once for the story and immediately a second time to enjoy the art. On blu-ray with a 46" screen it was spectacular and I know I will watch it again. With the vocal talents of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze, Jr., Anne Bancroft, Val Kilmer, etc., you are drawn immediately to all the characters (except Filo whose humor has little that is original) and you hate all the villains. This is not going to be the best blu you have in your collection as far as story, but it is well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie May 17, 2010
By maer
Format:DVD
My daughter found this movie while looking for movies here on Amazon. She researched it and decided that it looked interesting and would be nice for the whole family. It is a wonderful movie. They love the animation and how it is different than most animations that they have seen. I love the story line. I did think that it could have had a different ending. All-in-all, it is a good movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great family fair November 19, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was really disappointed that this movie was not better advertised when it came out at the theaters. I would have loved to have taken my kids and grand kids to see this. This is great fair. It has a very good story. Great animation and imagination. Get this for yourself or for your family. You won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Potential, Mediocre in Execution September 16, 2010
Format:DVD
Boy this is a tough one to review. I went into it with low expectations (there are many critiques out there and none too shy about bashing it), came away mildly amused, and now in recollection, can't really determine just whom this film is designed to reach. But before I get into the pros and cons of the picture itself, let's take a moment to talk about how it came into being.

The film was the product of Fathom Studios, a subsidiary of Macquarium. Headquartered in Atlanta Georgia, Macquarium is an internet solutions consultancy company. So in other words, this is a motion picture that bypasses traditional Hollywood studio backing/ financing. The DVD is actually distributed by powerhouse 20th Century Fox but the film itself is essentially an indie project through and through.

The story, which could be easily be classified as high fantasy along the lines of say Lord of the Rings or Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal tells of two races who inhabit a vividly colorful realm: The Lokni and the Nohrin.

The Lokni are ground dwelling greenish humanoids (of which title character Delgo (Freddie Prinz Jr.) happens to be) while the Nohrin are a bit more fairy-esque with clear wings and a bit of a penchant for conflict.

It turns out the lands that the Nohrin come from have become increasingly inhospitable and the King Zahn (Louis Gossett Jr.) was able to make a deal with the Lokni to settle in their crowded land.

Tensions rise to the point of war between the two races and Delgo, an adventurous dreamer but naive teenager, finds himself in a position of having to prove to his people that peace can prevail amidst the feuding.

The movie itself should be considered as average, with minimum real entertainment value, and less than I personally anticipated from an animation.
