Got this movie for my kids in the hopes it would simply be entertaining. It's often interesting for me to see how unrelenting certain points of view can be... and if that's what you're looking for, you won't be disappointed.
HUMANS BAD. The tipping point for me was when (spoiler alert) the animals found themselves in the middle of a Delhi roadway, causing a traffic jam/accident. Citizens immediately get out of their cars and start grabbing rocks to throw at the animals. Really?? If nothing else, this would be quite an indictment on the people of Delhi.
The bigger message being the very real issue of deforestation and removal of animal habitats. Yes - it is a problem, and it needs to be addressed -- but can there be tact? Yes. See Rio 2 to see a little better method.
The animation sucks. The story is completely bias. The only saving grace is a few of the songs, which my kids got a kick out of.
