Someone give these folks a real budget so they can make a movie that looks as good as it sounds.
September 30, 2006
It's more than a little contrived, but Warburton's Wolf has a worldly, hard-bitten charm.
September 28, 2006
A breezy, passably funny spin on a children's classic, mixing slapstick and farce with character humour and delighting in demolishing stereotypes.
August 8, 2006
Saddled with cheap-looking animation and a far from stellar cast, this Shrek clone is a diverting but hardly memorable addition to a dangerously overworked genre.
January 21, 2006
The production contains enough positive elements to make it worth a look, but not until it reaches DVD or TV. As a theatrical offering, it disappoints.
January 13, 2006
A warped, but mildly amusing twist on the childhood favourite.
January 13, 2006
The digital animation ranges from competent to clunky, the jokes too often feel tossed-off and random, and the movie too often descends into dullness, only to be yanked back from the abyss by the goat.
January 13, 2006
Offers a few laughs but overall is pretty tired.
January 13, 2006
Hoodwinked may be a poor cousin to the Shrek franchise, but this made-on-the-cheap computer-animated feature still has more style and snarky gags than Disney's recent CG hit, Chicken Little.
January 13, 2006
Even though it's basically a 10-minute short puffed up to fill 80 minutes, Hoodwinked has laughs and plenty of them.
January 13, 2006
Bit by bit, we fall asleep.
January 13, 2006
While it doesn't exactly break new ground, the movie is fast-paced and delivers lots of laughs aimed at both kids and adults, as well as some lively Looney Tunes-style action.
January 13, 2006
Features lackluster character design, so-so animation and only fitful bursts of cleverness.
January 13, 2006
It's bound to disappoint grown-ups who've been spoiled by the Pixar polish, but it's certainly worth a gander down the road on DVD.
January 13, 2006
Feels as warmed over as day-old muffins in Little Red Riding Hood's basket.
January 13, 2006
Feels uncannily like a too-chipper children's computer game that has somehow become unlinked from its best feature, the interactive menu.
January 13, 2006
The visuals are passable. The story's a lot of fun. And the story is what sells the movie.
January 13, 2006
A computer-animated feature that maintains a moderate level of cleverness without being the least bit engaging.
January 13, 2006
Does exactly what a police procedural should: keeps us guessing.
January 13, 2006
It's a moderately enjoyable escapade that isn't quite clever enough for adults and not quite imaginative enough for children.
