User Review

What a Hoot!

Rating: 10/10


The film is amazing, I absolutely loved it, the 3D animation is
spectacular, the voice acting is incredible and the music is
mesmerizing! Trust me, this is one film that actually lived up to
expectations, sure some parts were a bit forced but overall the film is
fantastic. The film had a great message in it and a very frighting
villain, The Pure Ones remind me of The Nazis and Ku Klux Klan. The
animation and fight choreography was very impressive and I'm very happy
they got actors like Hellen Mirren and Geoffry Rush to voice in the
film! Ultimately you will come out of the film and feel the money has
been well spent!
