A typical story which unfolds in a very senseless way. Things happen because they are violently contrived until the expected happens. The movie says little but the typical that the father is guilty of all for not listening to the child, how novel and deep and what a new approach to see a father son relationship. People are comparing this to Pixar, I can't see how. People seem to be a lot more lenient to animated movies. This is not a good movie but I guess that as animated movies come outside of Pixar, this movie could be said shines. It does have its funny and its cute moments, its pretty good to impressive but short action sequences, and it has some decent dialogue here and there. Those things are definitely praise worthy, but the movie is still below most decent movies that got a much lower tomato grade. Could it be that DreamWorks seems now the underdog and people are trying to make it better to equal things out? Well DreamWorks could never be an underdog, this movie is a proof that they manufacture products, some better than others and this is not their worst, but it reeks of manufactured product with some artistic heart melt down somewhere in there, and some deft hands executing decently.
