The Snurks is a really interesting movie with a concept that never really seems to have been done before. The plot revolves around animated children's show characters named Boo, Zino and a group of semi-villainous "Snurks". They get brought to the real world by a mad scientist trying to steal the ultimate power of the universe, something called Dalamite, which happens to be a part of the television world these characters come from. If you think the premise is weird, it gets weirder.

These one foot tall creatures must now battle a strange, unknown world, reclaim "the Dalamite" and return home to their beloved world, called "Gaia". I won't spoil the ending or any of the various subplots, but I will say that its an involved and interesting storyline, and many of the characters actually evolve, grow and change by the end, a rare thing in movies these days.

The visuals are stunning, and the attention given to details is meticulous. Many of the backgrounds contain visual reactions or subtle animation that is too often missing in animated movies today, moths buzzing around a street lamp, for instance.

On the whole, however, the movie falls short in a few places. None of the characters really resonated with me and as such came away as being forgettable. There were very few moments in the film that I would call memorable, and the climax of the movie takes far too long. Still, I would recommend this movie highly as a fun night of viewing.

This English movie has realistic and beautiful computer animation. Despite the apparent similarity to Shrek, The Snurks has much more kid appeal than adult appeal. I watched this with my friend's eight year-old. He laughed in all the right places, and kept saying how Gaya was so beautiful, he wished he could live there.

The story is very original. A TV series called "Gaya" features an heroic duo named Boo and Zino. Boo is the shy, bespectacled genius, while Zino is the handsome, daring, dumb jock who is a big hero. A professor in the real world learns how to use a television set as a transporter device to transport whatever - or whomever - is on the screen. Our little friends soon find themselves trapped in 21st century Earth, where they meet their creator and try to stop the mad professor from destroying Gaya.

Lots of action and humor, lovely scenery and effects. Mild language like "hell" and "damn" a couple of times.

I like to consider myself free of animation film snobbery. Sure I enjoy the latest Pixar or DreamWorks big budget blockbuster as much as the next guy but a little research reveals that there is a whole truckload of computer generated feature films on DVD that slip into the market without hype, hoopla or fanfare.

The Snurks is precisely a strong example of the latter. The film began life in Germany by Ambient Entertainment under the name Back to Gaya in 2004. It celebrates the honor of being the first German film to be completely computer generated! It was then brought to the United States by First Look Pictures in 2005 under the new, catchier name The Snurks. The entire film was dubbed in English with a vocal cast including Patrick Stewart of Star Trek fame and Emily Watson to mention a few of the talents recruited for the task.

The story goes something like this: The beautiful world of Gaya is home to a community of big-eared humanoid creatures who are much smaller than humans despite an uncanny resemblance. The exploits of these tiny folks just so happens to be a popular children's fictional television show- particularly a pair of heroes named Boo and Zino and a group of villainous "Snurks".

The whole lot of them gets transported into our world by a mad scientist trying to steal the ultimate power, a small orb that happens to be a part of the fictitious world these characters inhabit.

Sound strange so far? Oh it is! I mean not to bog this critique down on technicalities but does anyone else find the idea of a mad scientist, angry because his television show got cancelled, who develops a machine that can suck anything out of the TV and turn it into reality, a bit odd? I mean his intentions as the villain are about as muddled as it gets.

I was very disappointed. Mind you, I love animation, but this film which I thought was geared toward adults, was really on a juvenile level. However, it is a good addition to any dvd collection if you have children to entertain.

Ok, there's no big deep meaning here. It's a safe, standard cartoon for tween-agers, or maybe kids just below that age. The stereotypes are all there: and over-protected and rebellious princess (or something like), muscular and handsome hero with supergeek sidekick, and a basically good boy who just fell in with the wrong crowd. Their quest is to recover a magical gem from the mad scientist (with lab coat) who stole it.

The animation is as good as any around. A few nice turns of story line save it from being boring as well as trite, but I'll let you find them for yourself. It's good entertainment for kids, but an adult should have a good book to read while this is on.
