Summary: Kathryn Lasky's popular children's books are the inspiration for this captivating animated feature about Soren, a barn owl kidnapped from his peaceful forest home. His abductors bring him to an orphanage, where he must train to become a soldier. Despite the toil and hardships, Soren makes friends, and together the young birds attempt to escape.
I'm impressed. No matter which animal they pick up and they can build up a natural looking, cool eye-candy. But David Lynch was right: owls are not what they seem. They have no brains at all. At least in this story there was nothing to cling to. Shame for so well done animation.
It felt like a generic children's movie that Snyder was trying to make into a movie that spoke about being disillusioned as a youngster. Unfortunately the film gives into idealism and morality instead of growing into its potential. I didn't really expect anything else though, it was a children's movie after all. It's a shame though, that we have to spoon feed our kids this rainbow and sunshine BS instead of giving them real world advice.
Visually very beautiful, had some good jokes, epic owls (!) fighting scenes. Overall I enjoyed it quite a bit. Do not expect anything serious,just accept this movie as it is - film for kids with a sense of childish innocence in it.
it looks nice, but i fail to see the appeal of an owl fairy tale. the story is imaginative, but it doesn't really matter because it was off putting from the get go, on top of that it really doesn't take you for much of a ride. this movie should be reserved for only children eight and under, or if you're really looking for some owl-on-owl combat--never, ever thought i'd say that.
A film with stunning animation (plus amazing use of 3D) and solid voice work that is held back from greatness by a generic storyline derivative of countless other fantasy films and dialogue that, while often serviceable, occasionally gives way to unintentional laughs (take a shot every time a character uses the work "gizzard" in a sentence). Regardless, it makes for solid entertainment, if not much more.
For the first half, I wasnít really into it. I was too preoccupied with the fact that the characters were owls and with the supernatural plots devices. But I eventually got into it and ended up kinda digging it. It had a pretty conventional plot for a family film, but it was still enjoyable. It had some nice wit to it too; I found myself laughing out loud more than once. The animation was quite beautiful too. So, yeah, if you can get past the owls, it ainít half bad.
The film looked amazing and the characters were for the most part interesting. However, it all fell flat when the whole film is rushed to the point it felt exhausting to even watch. I think the film would have benefited of some characters being cut. It would have left more space for other characters to interact and given the story more time to flesh out.
Works just fine. The animation is exceptional, and although some of the voice acting is a little dodgy, for the most it is passable. As expected from Snyder some of the cinematography is brilliant. The screenplay is pretty clumsy, but for what is essentially a kids movie the script is more than strong enough. I thought the characters worked pretty good too, and once I was past the weirdness of them being owls I enjoyed this for the most part. Sets itself up for a sequel... which I would watch.
Lord of the Rings - Revised Owls Edition. Had a great time with this. Surprisingly dark, filled with dazzling visuals, fairly engrossing and only pulled back by some silly battle shots but c'mon it's still impressive for owls. Keen for a sequel.
