Little full, lotta sap.
The voice talents of Joaquin Phoenix didn't stand out as much to 11 year old me as it did to 31 year old me!
Some really cool animation here that's aged great... Totally forgot about the aspect ratio change whenever the bear transformation happens. I don't know that my opinion of this one has changed much at all since sixth grade.
*Embarassingly bad*, to the point I considered it very well might be the worst movie I’ve ever sat through. Not a single thing I liked about it. A movie which I decidedly *hated* everything about. The Ron Perlman movies have their flaws, sure, but this rendition is ugly, SO long, undecipherable and worst of all NEEDLESSLY gory & profane. Would’ve been better off being a carbon clone of GDT’s style, because I can’t even describe what we got here. Ruthlessly stupid and ill thought out.
This feels like a feature length version of one of those movies that play in the waiting line/boarding room before a ride at Disney World. Wishes! Dreams! You get the drill.
Some nice moments sprinkled in (not unlike pixie dust) in between a few nice choices for the music and animation… Otherwise, ironically, alarmingly uninspired.
