Antagony & Ecstasy

The animation is much the best part of Pete's Dragon, a film not surfeited with great & timeless elements.

In the overall realm of Disney magic, Pete's Dragon is a card trick rather than a grand illusion.

Boring, annoying and not funny, Pete's Dragon is one of the dullest films from Disney that I've ever seen.

Another not very charming but harmless fusion of animation and good old real-life.

The dragon itself grunts, grins and goofs around, but isn't half as appealing as its creators obviously hoped. More character and better animation would have helped.

The film lacks the emotional complexity and classic status of previous Disney films.

Offbeat live-action/animation mix with lots of drinking.

A Touching, humourous, and ultimately warm family film.

As a testament to its founder's legacy, this is still somewhat lesser Disney. But when viewed in combination for what passes as House of Mouse merriment today ...it's utterly brilliant.
