One plus: the animals are expertly rendered.
But sadly the tale of adult CR (who’d surrendered
To a life with joys that are few)
And the re-introduction of his youth’s crew
Is overall quite drab, bland & sluggish. Not recommended.
Demise of their nemesis McGregor (grumpy sod)
Spells momentary freedom for this animal squad.
Creature effects: beautifully-rendered.
But various tonal shifts tended
To feel somewhat awkward (and came across as odd).
A special mission to keep a precious book out of harm.
A delicious film. Beautiful colours. Full of charm.
Grant: fab in those guises.
Many joyous surprises.
Genuinely warm and sweet. No hint of saccharine smarm.
A film musical that's quite visually impressive,
With storylines intertwined (successive).
Though most elements were strong,
It actually seemed overly-long:
Though just two hours, the length felt excessive.
