Now, Cartoon Network after 2003 hasn't made many good animated shows, but the ones that were saving it from utter downhill were Xiaolin Showdown, Flapjack, Chowder, My Gym Partner is a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, Ben 10 [Alien Force], Skunk Fu, & a handful of others. But once CN decided to create a 'live-action' movie, oh man, I knew trouble was coming. The network is called CARTOONNetwork for a reason! But trust me, this movie being live action & later becoming a live-action series (thankfully later cancelled) is not the problem with this movie or the show, in fact, it's the least of it's problems.
This movie has horrible acting, horrible beyond words! You want to know how bad the acting is? It makes the acting in the first 3 Twilight movies, Pokemon 2000's voice acting, Dungeons & Dragons, Marmaduke, & The Haunting look phenomenal. Yeah it's that bad. In other words, the acting is just as bad as the acting in The Adventures of Sharkboy & Lavagirl, & Jonas Brothers the 3D concert Experience.
The characters? Annoying, & cliche beyond words! All unlikable, horribly depthless, & laughably bad. They make Edward, Jacob, & Bella Swan look more useful, & likable in the first 3 films, & full of more depth. The dialogue...I have no words for it. Just let me say that the dialogue in New Moon & Crossroads is better than this.
This movie is just as bad as Camp Rock, The Naked Brothers Band Movie, & that Ben 10 Live Action movie!
As for the show it later became, oh man, there are no words to how bad that show is. The show was an abortion of an abortion, & CartoonNetwork's biggest sin of a show. The acting in the show was a lot worse, A LOT! Surprisingly worse than the acting in Jonas L.A. & Shake it Up, but the show as a whole is just as bad. The whole concept of retarded, literally. I can compare it to shows like The Naked Brothers Band, & ANY of the recent shitty live action shows on Disney Channel. But only this show landed on the list of one of the worst shows ever made (it deserves it, but I also wonder how Disney Channels' shows didn't land on that list either).
The villain of the show? He is so bad, & annoying, that he makes the villain in "Meet the Robinsons", & Gargamel from The Smurfs look like Voldemort. No, the show is really that bad. It makes Nickelodeon's shit shows like Big Time Rush, Victorious, Fanboy & Chum Chum, & The Penguins of Madagascar look Emmy-worthy.
So all in all, this is the worst show, live-action movie, & idea CartoonNetwork has ever done, & one of the worst ever. Trust me, you can eat the shittiest kids show on Nickelodeon, CartoonNetwork, & Disney Channel, & crap better shit than this. How CartoonNetwork stooped so, low I will never know.
Final Score: 0/100 (Abysmal)
