I am not a great fan of this animation style but somehow it worked perfectly with the story... by the way I got this one thinking that it's the new 3D CGI version... and of course, after started watching it I noticed my mistake.

The story flows really well and I have to say that kids enjoyed it and kept repeating the rhymes. Solidly done, well directed, poorly animated short movie which will please with its message!

While most Dr. Seuss' film's don't blow be away from a film perspective, each has a viable message and one that usually is timeless and still holds true, even today. "The Lorax" was a television special and while it only runs 25 minutes in length, contains a poignant message about capitalism as well as protecting our earth's natural resources and utilizing them with respect for our planet. In this short piece we witness one's greed and what a lust for money can do to the environment as we lose all our trees to industry. The film still proves very true, maybe even more so now in today's economy then when it was first released. While this is a grave and darker adaptation, both kids and adults can learn some viable ideals from heading the Lorax's warnings.
