With animation reminiscent of early Disney and one CGI segment involving a sleeping ogre, CAMELOT has all the ingredients for a musical toon. The songs written by Carole Bayer Sager and David Foster are more pop oriented but performed well by Bryan White, The Coors, Celine Dion and some of the cast members.
The characters are voiced nicely by Jessica Gelwig (Kayley), Cary Elwes (Garrett), Gary Oldman (Ruber), Jane Seymour (Julianna); Pierce Brosnan (Arthur), and of course Don Rickles/Eric Idle as the dragon.
It's probably not destined to be a classic, but it's fine entertainment for the whole clan.
The voices are great, Cary Elwis, Pierce Brosnen, Jane Seymore, John Cleese, Don Rickles and the singing talents of the Corrs, Celene Dion and Steve Perry. This has a wonderful score and the soundtrack is just as good. Great lyrics and music.
The DVD has three fun features that make it just as interesting for the adults and the kids, but I am sure the kids will have far more fun. Technically it is a well put together film and the music and sound effects are brilliant.
The story is sweet and touching and the comedy sprinkled throughout. A must for every family or animated feature fan!
First of all, the songs were sub-par. I really liked the song "Looking Through Your Eyes". I think that song should be among the famous love duets. My favorite song however was "Prayer", sung by Lady Juliana, Kayley's mother, as Kayley runs from those wacko tool shed villains. It was very pretty and had a nice effect. Plus it also gave Lady Juliana depth. "If I Didn't Have You" was comical and fun. However, The songs, "On My Father's Wings" and the opening song weren't really memorable for me and the opening song lacked the power and umph that I generally like in animated movies. Ruber's, the bad guy, song was weird and I didn't realize he was even singing until about halfway through the song. I thought that he was just chanting along to that weird music.
Okay, the characters. Kayley was nicely done and she was a good, interesting heroine. I give her a thumbs up. One comment on her though-would they really allow girls to wear that sort of outfit in the middle ages? It seemed kind of boyish and out of place, even though it was cool. I thought Lady Juliana was a really good minor character because she had so much faith in her daughter and never gave up. She is also very strong and isn't afraid of anyone. I loved her. I thought that the female characters in this movie were drawn stronger than the males. The guys all looked awkward. Anyway, moving on. Garet was a good character and I liked him, although his song (which I forgot to mention above) was merely okay. He was strong and could fight very well for a blind guy.Read more ›
As the movie suggests, this is about a tomboyish beauty who ignores her widowed mother's wishes to become a proper lady and sets off to be a knight and "rescue damsels in distress." But she is sidetracked by a would-be-usurper who wants to take King Arthur's Excalibur and rule Camelot, who kidnaps her mother (because the girl's father was killed when protecting Arthur's life) as revenge.
The girl meets a two-headed dragon and a blind, hunkish hermit she enlists in thwarting the apparent villain from his devious task.
The animation is so-so but is occasionally colorful and dazzling. The vocals are finely done (superb "acting" by Jessalyn Gilsig, Cary Elwes, Gary Oldman, and Pierce Brosnan as King Arthur) and the songs and plot are slight. Despite what the critics have talked about it, it's a well-made animated movie with a few minor flaws. Give this a look.
