Aaron's Review of Barnyard
The king of a land gets murdered? Check. His son becomes the new leader, but doesn't want the responsibility? Check. He decides to goof and live a life of not caring or worrying? Check. Through a convenient epiphany, he realizes his destiny? Check. Final battle under a red sky? Check.
It's official. This is nothing but a blatant Lion King rip-off plain and simple, only it's made worse by gag-inducing gags, subpar animation, annoying side characters and its unnecessary filler that's only reserved for avoiding the plot. But what else would you expect from the guy who gave us such classics as "Kung Pow! Enter The Fist?"
However, David Koechner as Dag pulls off a surprisingly threatening performance and is the only quality that makes the movie worth watching.
