The animation is nowhere near as good as a Pixar or Dreamworks and it looks like it was made about 10 years ago as the textures and colours aren’t up to todays standards.

The key to a good animated movie is to entertain kids and adults and this is definitely a kids film.

Funded by South Korea which explains the bizarre appearance of Psy and a quickly assembled feel make this feel cheap and outdated and more importantly not very entertaining. Goes through the motions . . yet another formulaic cash cow for Hollywood.
