Great special effects and exciting adventure stuff. A bit of a slow buildup and unnecessarily dead parents.

A visually impressive and exhilarating adventure that keeps the suspense, thrills and comedy running high through the surprising end and supplies interesting characters with moving plights that keep the audience rooting.

Everyone is good here, with Williams taking on the unusual persona of straightman much of the way.
