The Chosen One Reviews
I won't give away the details or specifics on the film's unique story here. However, I will write in general that the movie is about lead character Lou Hanske's miserable day which puts him into the hospital, and later sends him on his quest with friends to find answers to the Church of Frank's odd claims that Lou is the Chosen One. Of course, a nefarious group gets word of this and sends their nasty ninjas, rowdy robots, and femme fatales out to try to stop him.
The film has a good sense of comic pacing and timing that is utilized well. The Chosen One is done in Flash animation with characters having a 'South Park' and 'Family Guy' type of feel to its style and movements (in looks - I don't mean content). So the animation in the Chosen One looks primitive at times, but people have commented elsewhere online that it actually makes the film funnier to watch. The weak parts where I think the animation and story is not as effective are briefly in some of the film's middle section material when the drama elements begin to emerge in the story. However, the rest of the comedy and other material keep the few weak elements from shadowing the movie, and therefore also keeps the film's strengths and rhythms on track towards the film's strong ending.
The Chosen One's screenplay contains sharp comic dialog and some timely gags. I can see why Chris Sarandon, Tim Curry, Tracy Lords, Lance Henriksen, and Daniel Fishel stepped onboard to do the voice acting for this animated flash feature. But the little film also attempts to offer a little more thought to its story and comedy, and I think it does so successfully -- and I suspect most of the lucky audience members that attended the special screening I went to, seeing and experiencing their enthusiastic and engaging response during and after the viewing of the film, would probably concur.
