Disney is just running out of ideas
I have to admit that Disney cartoons have always been my least favorite
and although they have a few that are really good, most are a bit
My problem with Disney was that their animation was dull to me. Some of
them like Snow White and actually most of the pre 1980 animated
classics were nicely animated but then they seemed to get dull and
Even though I am not the biggest fan of Disney it still bothered me to
learn they had shut down the animation department a while back. I think
that was crazy and they will eventually bring it back.
Computer animated movies have taken over the last few years and
although I dislike CGI in live action films, I do love it in cartoons.
Movies like TOY STORY and HOODWINKED are very fun to watch, very crisp
I thought this movie was beautifully pieced together, but it lacked
story and excitement. The characters left much to be desired and its no
wonder why I left a vote of 5 and so did almost everyone else who has
rated this movie. It is a middle of the road average movie. It will
shut the kids up, but keep the adults and older lads bored out of their
I will never watch the DVD again and I would not recommend it to
anyone. There is a lot more out there to watch so don't waste your time
One positive note, The vocal talents were great, especially Ewan
McGreggor and John Clease..

Much underrated, resourceful, witty - in one word: recommended
I only saw this movie yesterday and I must say it is hugely underrated.
The story is very resourceful, funny, witty and interesting, the
characters are well-written and I personally find it really refreshing
after having seen many technically convincing animation movies without
a really original details in the story (like Monsters vs Aliens last
By the way, the animation is also great here, especially the
development of the characters, the fascinating English landscapes and
buildings or the stormy sea and the warships, which are formidable. The
cast of voices is hilarious, Ewan McGregor, Hugh Laurie, Ricky Gervais
or Jim Broadbent, just to mention a few.
Finally, what I really liked about Valiant is that it lacks any form of
"wanting to be cool", it doesn't have the arrogant self-righteous,
self-reflective tone I find nowadays with many animation pieces. Taking
place during the Second World War, it is a great tale which is not
barely the figment of the creators' imagination, so this makes it even
more worthwhile to see. The music is also authentic and my favourite,
but even if it's not yours, I'm sure this film has enough virtues to be
seen by the young or the older ones as well. I've downgraded it by 1
star only because I found the burping jokes a bit too excessive at one
point, but otherwise, it's highly recommended..
