3.0 out of 5 stars Rucio's Unique Version of a Literary Classic March 3, 2011
Format:DVD
If you're new to my animation feature film review library, I should begin this review by disclaiming a trend in the genre that nearly always ends disastrously: Domestic studios importing foreign films, slapping an English vocal track atop of the material, and claiming it as their own. The list of films guilty of this technique is long and ever growing. Considering Donkey X falls into this category, there was a strong suspicion going in that this one would be a proverbial train wreck. Worse still, the few reviews I was able to track down seemed to confirm such reservations. Fortunately I can begin this critique by assuring prospective viewers that of all the foreign translation jobs, this one is perhaps the most pleasant.

Released in Spain back in 2007, Donkey X (or "Donkey Xote" as it was originally called) tells the tale of a small town (La Mancha) where there resides a dreamer named Don Quixote (voiced by Steve Salazar).

Don is able to convince his close friend Sancho (James Phillips) to commit to an epic quest after having shared many misadventures together prior. Sancho's donkey, Rucio (Joe Lewis), is actually the centerpiece on which the literary classic tale is centered (hence the title).

With a little deliberation, the two heroes set off on chasing down the dream of locating Don Quixote's elusive true love, Dulcinea, once and for all.

The ingredients for fun are all present and believe it or not, the visuals are pretty stunning (contributing to the film often being heralded as Spanish cinema's finest computer animation effort to date). The trouble is that the prose is a bit clumsy and, interestingly, not the type of perplexity foreign adaptations are usually known for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kids hated it. July 6, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Trying to find kjds movies for every letter of the alphabet, was pretty excited when I found this for X ( I know technically its d for donkey, but it would have worked for my pre k students)... They hated it. Didn't keep them entertained at all. So I gave it to a friend, she then tells me her older kids ( 3rd graders) hated it too... Its really just not an entertaining cartoon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Donkey X..... June 27, 2013
Format:DVD
Follow Rucio, the donkey of Castile as he tells the true story of the legendary Don Quixote. Rucio jumps at the opportunity to join Don Quixote on his quest to battle The Half Moon Knight and overcome the dangerous obstacles that lurks them on the way.

Good effort as it may be to tell a story(sequel?) of Don Quixote, it gets off to a mighty slow start...which will probably leave those unfamiliar with the story itself at a loss, confused and ready to throw in the towel on the movie. But, for those willing to stick with it and watch it all the way through, Donkey X is actually a very good and entertaining CGI movie.

I hate to admit, though, at times- the movie tends to go off in different directions without truly any sound conclusion that it'll leave you scratching your head. Maybe it's something that is lost in translation considering this is a CGI movie to come from Spain. Not only that but, considering this is supposed to be geared more towards children, it does have several scene that I felt were geared more towards adults(shots of buxom women and whatnot).

Overall, though, if you can get past that-Donkey Xote or Donkey X is worth getting and adding to your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay. June 27, 2013
Format:DVD
Just released this month, Donkey X is based on the 400 year old Spanish classic tale "Don Quijote de la Mancha." It follows the Rucio, the most adventurous, brave, and mischievous donkey of the Castile, as he tells the true story of the legendary Don Quixote. Rucio jumps at the opportunity to join Don Quixote on his quest to battle The Half Moon Knight and overcome the dangerous obstacles that lurk them on the way. This film has a 90 minute run time and is rated PG.

The dialog is actually witty, the timing natural and the narrative strong but Donkey X plods along with far too much complexity to be grasped by its target audience. Adults, especially those familiar with Miguel de Cervantes' classic tale, will have no trouble keeping the plot together but will likely be off-put by the film's failure to settle into a consistent theme (despite a fairly lengthy 90-minute runtime).

The ingredients for fun are all present and believe it or not, the visuals are pretty stunning (contributing to the film often being heralded as Spanish cinema's finest computer animation effort to date). The trouble is that the prose is a bit clumsy and, interestingly, not the type of perplexity foreign adaptations are usually known for. The PG rating should definitely be taken seriously. While domestic efforts seem to earn it for less, Donkey X does contain a few references that parents may not appreciate (such as multiple breast references/ gags, a rather gross urine segment and some cross dressing humor).

In all, Donkey X is by no means a masterpiece though it does have much more heart and entertainment then most animated features that have undergone the dub & re-release treatment.
