are guns and fist fights seems extremely odd and prudish. Honestly there's nothing in this film
that can compare with what you see everyday on network TV. It is after all an innocent cartoon.
This is a fine adventure film for all ages, although probably more appropriate for younger viewers
(ages 6-12) as its basic message is "be good, be courageous, and save the world". The settings are
often beautiful, there are some nice action sequences, and the animation is quite accomplished as well.
This is an imaginative film made in Europe, slightly slower-paced than the usual Hollywood action-packed
blockbuster, so it might be appreciated more by those with sophisticated tastes. Also, a European
perspective takes a more comprehensive view of life for children, even in a cartoon fantasy.
The film is based on a very famous and beloved Belgian comic series called "Bob & Bobette/Suske & Wiske",
and has elements that are similar to the "Tintin" books, which are also Belgian. The series evokes
an affectionate and humorous take on the adventures of an extended and eccentric Belgian family.
Overall, a pretty good western/fantasy/mystery animated film!
That said. Yes, the jokes are corny and some of the language/dialogue is strange, but that's to be expected with a movie that has been translated into English. Why else would they throw the word "damn" in there repeatedly? To fill up space. I think the animation is pretty good. The treatment of the brunette as a sex-object does slightly enrage my feminist sensibilities, but if you actually leave to film on until the end, instead of, ya know, turning it off, you'll learn she's the most intelligent character, a cop, and the "hero." Which probably makes this one of the more progressive and intelligent children's movies I've seen in a while.
Thank you, Belgium.
