Audience Reviews for The Man Called Flintstone
With incredibly conceived, wonderfully imaginative world-building, solid humor, memorable characters, strong animation and fine script, The Man Called Flintstone manages to transcend its flaws, mainly the detours with kids and troubled pacing, with a phenomenally satirical, very smart story and inventiveness to spare. It is a beautiful surprise and one of the best 1960s animation has to offer.
This feature length movie has some occasionally fun spoofs of spy movies but also ultimately struggles to fill its length often descending into uninspired and rather bland music numbers and sketches. What's more is it completely fails at capturing the series sitcom situational humor
Before I get into bashing The Man Called Flintstone I guess I should explain myself a bit. I actually hadn't seen this in years until most recently. I was actually a lover of this when I was very, very small but I hadn't seen it since then. Picking it up cheap, I was excited to see it again but ultimately let down when I realized just how mediocre it was... perhaps less than mediocre. What worked as a half hour cartoon definitely did not translate well to the big screen. To be fair, there are some fun ideas in here, but they're hampered with lame dialogue, horrendous LSD-induced animated sequences and plot-stopping musical numbers. Maybe this would have been better off as a TV special instead. Either way, it still doesn't hold up well at all. I give it credit because I enjoyed it as a child and because I love The Flintstones, but other than that, forget it. It's a good idea but executed poorly.
