Runtime of approximately 1 hour 42 minutes.
It’s not a bad film, and offers some fun adventure time. But, it is also a far cry from previous Disney movies. Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen many of their new films that makes this come across so differently. Is this what Disney has moved toward?
I watched it yesterday expecting some good fun, but the movie was ultimately overshadowed by a lot of equality and what is referred to as virtue-signaling. One of the main characters is a young boy who is openly homosexual. Now I understand diversity but when it’s a kids film, it shouldn’t really be included as a normal thing.
From an action and adventure point it was fun, and I enjoyed the struggles of the characters as they battle through a weird mystical world to find the source or cause of the problems in their world. A world where they farm energy. Once inside the strange world things turn out even weirder, taking you through huge fields of breathing life, acidic lakes and tetradactyl like translucent birds. There’s no shortcoming of eye-candy, as an adult I thought it was enjoyable.
There is not much to say about it, since it would spoil the movie. I do recommend it, but I’d wait to rent it or watch it through the Disney+ when it’s released. It feels adventurous and fun. A living world our main characters have to get through. The music was somewhat familiar and didn’t feel that original. It also reminded me of the older movie Treasure Planet
Rating of 4 out of 5
