This is a reasonable animation film, with a typical story line (good triumphing over evil!) I bought it so I could listen to Val Kilmer's voice (voice being better than no Val at all!) Even in animation, he meets a grizzly end though! The film got some mixed reviews when it was released, and didn't do well in cinemas (the fault of just advertising it on childrens tv? - they don't usually make the choice of what to see!) I'm sure childeren will enjoy it though.
