What it's about:

In the Okavango Delta, Billy, the little mischievous meerkat, and his best (and only) pal, Socrates, the friendly lion, wait for the annual flood, essential to the Delta and all of the animals living there. Wanting to prove to his adoring son, Junior, that he’s not the screwball loser everyone, sometimes justifiably so, thinks he is, Billy sets out to find water, accompanied by Socrates. On their journey, they meet a truly wild and funny bunch of animals from all over the world, who have flocked to Africa in search of a new home.

What the critics thought:

"It looks very nice, even if the clunky dialogue and disjointed plot would never have been allowed through by Pixar."
- Andrew Pulver, The Guardian

"If you kitted Al Gore out in a furry animal costume and put him on a soapbox you'd have a rough idea of the environmental message trumpeted in this harmless kids' fare."
- Tim Evans, Sky Movies

"A slightly preachy but entertaining tale for younger viewers on the perils of global warming and the foolishness of human kind."
- Allan Hunter, Daily Express

It's the survival of the fittest.

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
