News & Interviews for Khumba
Critic Reviews for Khumba
Just enough to keep restless kiddies from wandering off into the wilds.
Khumba, despite being resoundingly terrible, will probably appeal to children in the same way that a Lucky Charms commercial or an inflatable bouncy castle would.
Character movement occasionally has a stiff, disconnected quality, but the animators distinguish themselves with the weathered richness of their geographically unmistakable setting.
Real-life nature is presented as more exotic, detailed and deeply felt than any fantasy world.
The animation is vibrant and the voice cast impressive... So it's a great shame that the animators and actors are let down by the meandering plot and trite dialogue.
Audience Reviews for Khumba
An overall average movie. It makes sense for the most part, but if feels like I've seen this movie before in a variety of different movies before
Don't ask me to make it rain.
The Great Karoo is an area in Africa where many animals reside but the zebras have a secret watering hole there that they keep to themselves. One day a young zebra named Zhumba accidentally spills the beans on the water hole which leads to his exile. He is determined to find a new waterhole that will save his people and clear his name.
"You were faster than all the boys."
"No. Just smarter."
Anthony Silverston delivers Khumba in his major motion picture debut. The storyline for this picture is above average and fun to watch unfold (it did remind me a little of Open Season). The animation was excellent and way better than I anticipated. The voices were also better than I anticipated and include Steve Buscemi, Laurence Fishburne, Liam Neeson, Charles Adler, Jake Austin, Loretta Devine, Catherine Tate.
"No creature gazes upon the wings of doom!"
I watched this with my daughter and I will admit we both enjoyed the animation style but found the story a bit boring (she was on and off interested). I do feel this is an above average cartoon with a solid animation style but the characters and plot are fairly mediocre (I did enjoy the conclusion). Overall, this is worth a viewing but I wouldn't add it to my DVD collection.
"I'm grooming for stardom here."
Beautiful animation and fun characters throughout tue movie. Fun film for children and family to enjoy. The voice actors were despite the fact that they do not have much experience being voice actors since theu do more live action.
