J and I watched this last night and absolutely loved it. Who would have thought that an animated film with no dialogue would fly by faster than most of those with dialogue? Just to make things even better...J grew up a couple towns away from Bellville. He was howling at the frog-grenade scenes.
The action is fantastic, and the characters are remarkably well-developed. Grandma and Bruno are particularly wonderful. The music kept the movie moving along at a nice pace, and the animation was spectacular. Few animated movies these days even try to pull off such style, and far fewer actually succeed.
