"Babe" de Chris Noonan apuesta por una historia entrañable, emotiva, y muy amena, que se beneficia de unos soberbios efectos especiales y de su magnifico reparto para ofrecer un cuento universal tan mágico como encantador.
Babe, however, it is the complete opposite. Let me start off by saying that even though this review may be a little biased, it will still give you an
accurate representation of what this film is really about. Anyways, I can't believe I am asking this, but is there really anything wrong with this film?
Seriously! It's near-perfect on almost every level! The story may be a little
unoriginal at times due to the Charlotte's Web similarities. But the
characters are incredibly spectacular that I didn't even care if the story
was unoriginal or not! James Cromwell's performance as Arthur Hoggett is
honestly one of his, if not, his best performances that I have ever seen
from him! When his character (Keep in mind that I said "His character"
instead of "He") is on screen, I become very excited on what is going to
happen next. Also, any emotion that he is feeling in the film (Whether it is
happy, sad, disappointed, or even angry), I start feeling that emotion too! I think that is a very good thing indeed. It gives you the thought of him being that exact character rather than being himself. The rest of the characters are awesome too. Though I wish Babe himself had slightly more development. But I guess that's somewhat to be expected of protagonists these days. As for the setting. I absolutely love it to death! Being from the countryside of Oregon, I grew up mostly in suburb ion areas with a lot of hills and farmlands. So to have a film that mostly takes place in a familiar environment in my own hands, it's downright heartwarming to me! Overall, this is a must watch for everyone! It may not be legendary like it almost was. But when you factor in the amazing story, compelling and though-provoking characters, stellar and beautiful setting, then you will no doubt think that it is legendary!
