Well, what a thoroughly entertaining and all round excellent film. Amazing animation, funny characters, interesting story. I half intended to see this in the year it was released (2004) but as usual things got in the way, and since then it’s just never been the right moment or time.
I found myself laughing, crying and cheering in equal amounts, considering the characters on the screen are totally animated it’s impressive how much emotion they manage to generate.
There’s clearly not much to be said about the deep plot or the meeningful dialog, but this is an animated hero comedy for grown ups and it delivers. Go rent it. Watch it.
