A rather entertaining and exciting anime influenced action adventure...
At just 70 minutes, Firebreather plays more like a pilot for a TV series than a real film, but it has its moments.
Firebreather is a 2010 CGI animated made-for-TV film, based on the Image Comics comic book series of the same name, which premiered on November 24, 2010 on Cartoon Network.
On the last day of the war between humans and Kaiju, a woman named Margaret Rosenblatt (voiced by Dana Delany) and a 120 ft dragon Kaiju named Belloc (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson) fall in love, and have a son named Duncan (I have to say that my wife kept asking how is that possible :-)?)
Sixteen years later, Margaret and Duncan (voiced by Jesse Head) are moving into a new house as he gets ready for his first day at a new school. However, Duncan fears that his orange skin and appetite for coal with make others think of him as a freak and a prime target for bullies... now, if you find this story a little bit overwhelming... do not watch this movie! It is made for teenagers not for philosophers and deep thinkers...
Mania.com's Rob Worley viewed Firebreather at the New York Comic Con, awarding the film a B+ and stating "Teen Angst + Kaiju Big Battle = CG Awesome!," but criticizing how the animation could be "... somewhat distracting as the characters sometimes have a puppet-like appearance." Worley concluded that he would like to see the film turned into a franchise or a TV series... and I agree!
Cartoon Network's animated fantasy wows with tricks, quips and plates of coal... that's enough to enjoy it... but don't get carried away!
