Napoleon is an Australian classic that has almost faded into extinction. Nobody talks about it anymore, and scarcely anyone I know has seen it. I've loved this film ever since I was a little boy. It's more than an adventure, it's magical. It hit all the right notes in terms of humour and emotion. If you ever want to get a movie for your children, get Napoleon! It will be one they'll never forget.
This is the story of a Golden Retriever Pup named Napoleon, who gets transported away from his home after climbing into a loosely-tied basket with helium filled balloons. He gets into all kinds of trouble, eventually ending up stuck in outback Australia. Along his journey, he finds a mentor named Birdo, who tags along with him and helps him as he makes his way home.
There are heaps of animals encountered along the way. They include: an evil cat, a lazy koala, a conniving spider, a flamboyant kangaroo, a grouchy frill-necked lizard, playful dingo pups, and hilarious penguins. My goodness was it riveting to see as a child. I haven't seen the film in years, yet I haven't forgotten a thing. napoleon
The cinematography is magnificent. I could imagine how difficult it would have been to film all of these animals, and have to match human voices to the expressions on their faces. All I know is that it worked, and worked well. I also vividly remember the music to be exciting and make you want to run down the backyard and explore.
If you're not a fan of children's movies, then stay clear of Napoleon. If you have children, buy this film as soon as you can! What may not seem like much to adults can be a the most exciting, entertaining thing in the world to kids. Napoleon is just that, exciting.

one of the most boring and pointless films i have ever seen. the puppy was cute, but it doesnt distract how heavily disappointing and unlikely this film this is.

Loved this movie as a kid, but on an adult rewatch it felt very lame.

One of my childhood favorites. I love how he acts as a typical kid (you know the ones who don't like being called baby names and whatnot.) in the beginning and how he gets into mischief and it causes his adventure. Well this is surely a great film for all ages. How could anyone not like this??? Unless you hate the part where that lizard thing says "GO AWAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!" I don't find this movie one bit offensive, babyish or anything like that. It just takes you back to the time you used imagination. :)
