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.Read more ›
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).Read more ›
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.Read more ›
