The Tale of Despereaux - Review and Trailer

Here's my review of The Tale of Despereaux - it wasn't as good as I was hoping for, but still worth watching.

I know I'd posted the trailer a while back, but here it is again if you missed it:

I agree with your review on DESPEREAUX

like you said, the narration is badly written

and to add to that, there was no need for Sigourney Weaver to over-explain everything in the end about how one thing causes another.

It should've been left for the audience themselves to interpret.

And yes, it was a bit too dark for kids to see..
the movie's not sure what it tries to cater to.

Hey Rama

In fact every review I've read so far says the same thing - that it doesn't know who its target audience was. Shame really as I think it could have been a really great movie. As it is - not bad, but not great.
