By David Girod VINE VOICE on April 24, 2006
After going to "The Wild" this weekend with my two kids, I gotta say I don't understand all the bashing of Disney and this film? Maybe "The Wild" isn't on par with "The Lion King" or "Toy Story", but it's far from being a snoozer like "Chicken Little" or "Home on the Range". There may be similar characters in both "Madagascar" and "The Wild", but each film stands on it's own, and both are pretty enjoyable. "The Wild" was a lot of fun, had some laugh out loud moments, and featured some fantastic animation. The soundtrack was fun, and while the songs may be older, who cares, they fit the spirit of the movie. Eddie Izzard's koala bear steals the film, and had my son and daughter laughing all afternoon. I am not sure what some of these other movie goers were expecting from "The Wild" and why it was such a major disappointment, but I say that if you enjoyed "Madagascar" then you will like "The Wild" too. Anything featuring the voices of Keifer Sutherland and William Shatner is worth taking a look at.

I don't really care what these other people are saying, this movie was really good. It's the perfect movie for young children to watch with adults, or kids of any age. It's very entertaining and a success as a animated movie (better than Madagascar).

They say Hollywood is a "race for second place," so you might say that DISNEY'S "THE WILD" is first to be second. Talking animals from an NYC zoo, ending up in an exotic foreign place, facing their fears to become better...talking animals. If this sounds familiar you may have already seen it DREAMWORKS' MADAGASCAR released less than a year ago. I'm not pointing fingers here, Disney has been supposedly working on this for 9 years, but THE WILD comes across as a "second-hand lion," watered down and "toothless."

The only differences, apart from the film and production company names, are style and voice casting. Whereas MADAGASCAR'S visual style is more cartoonish, THE WILD's approach is ultra-realistic in details. While Madagascar had characters voiced by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and David Schwimmer, the voice casting for THE WILD is up to Disney's high standards: Respected leader SAMSON (guess HIS species) is voiced by Kiefer Sutherland , street savy Benny the Squirrel by Jim Belushi, dim-witted Larry the Snake by Richard Kind (of "the Producers") and Janeane Garofalo as Bridget the Giraffe. Don Cherry, Canadian hockey announcer cameos as the penguin MC. One possible breakout character is Nigel the British kolala, voiced by Eddie Fizzard, trying to shed his cuddly image, later becoming idol to a pack of wildebeests along with their choreographing leader dancing to the beat of different drum, Kazar, voiced brilliantly-straight by William Shatner (who provides voice for another animated animal in the upcoming "Over the Hedge.

I expect QUALITY from Disney, and I didn't see quality with this film. It felt like a runner-up knockoff, and not something that anyone actually invested time or effort in. Ok, the animation was interesting, but not interesting enough to hold me for the entire length. It had a few laugh out loud moments, but for the most part, I was bored. And the sound mix on the DVD is awful -- the music swamps the dialogue through much of the movie.

The movie was so awesome! Samson (Kiefer Sutherland, 24), Benny (Jim Belushi, According To Jim), Nigel (Eddie Izzard), Bridget (Jeaneane Garofalo), and Larry (Richard Kind) are living in New York City with their little cub of family adventure sekking lion cub Ryan (Greg Cipes, Teen Titans) to live in New York Central Park Zoo. Ryan gets lost in those green boxes and ships them to Africa. Samson, Larry, Bridget, Nigel and Benny are searching for Ryan and be able to take on the most firecest wildebeest Kazar (William Shatner, Over The Hedge) to save Ryan.

Okay. 10 reasons why I love this movie:

10. New York City

9. The Dancing Scene at the end of the film

8. Searching for Ryan

7. Comedy

6. Drama

5. Adventure

4. Difference between Finding Nemo, Madagascar and The Lion King

3. The animals running around New York City

2. Good for kids and adults, even teenagers

1. Favorite Character in the movie: Ryan

This movie was so amazing and awesome. Finding Nemo, The Lion King and Madagascar mixed together in one movie that will be charted on the Hit Movie List of 2006. This movie will beat out many films in 2006 like, Hoodwinked, Doogal, Curious George, Over The Hedge and Ice Age 2: The Meltdown. The Wild will be the No.1 Disney Animated Movie of 2006. You should see it in theatres and if you haven't seen it in theatres yet, it will be your chance to get it on DVD soon.

You just can't have too many cartoons featuring zoo animals breaking out of their prisons/zoos and heading home. Or can you?

With this offering, we have a father/son relationship off kilter. Unable to live up to his father's reputation, Ryan the lion handily escapes the zoo and parks his carcass in a "green box" to have a good pout. Unfortunately, this soon puts him on a ship heading for some jungle near a volcano. A pursuit follows allowing for several misadventures before a rescue can be put into effect.

The animation style varies from the opening false start to the introduction of real looking yet not real looking animals. The style of the snake Larry (voiced by Richard Kind) is especially problematic. If you can get past this weirdness, the second problem is with the voice-actors. Some tried to create voices for the characters (like William Shatner), some just used their own voice making it quite jarring to hear an odd looking lion sound exactly like Kiefer Sutherland. At any rate, there was only one character (mainly due to the actor voicing him) that stood out in a positive fashion: Nigel the cute and cuddly koala (Eddie Izzard). The rest were run of the mill, spare part characters barely discernible from any other cartoon featuring zoo animals on the loose.

There is some occasional humor, the use of recognizable songs at awkward moments is a bit disconcerting, loved the chameleon covert agents. This cartoon is neither bad nor good; it's just okay.
