3.0 out of 5 stars Not a big-hitter but certainly not a foul ball either!, 16 Aug 2008
This review is from: Everyone's Hero [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a touching little movie that is, at times, sweeter than candyfloss but doesn't really suffer for it. Whilst the plot has been done many times before (i.e. child faces insurmountable odds to prove his worth) this is nicely done and the voice artist talent is very good. It has some big names behind it and the animation is nice and fits with the period charm of the film.

The best concept of the movie is that of having the baseball and bat talk to the hero. The interplay between the bat and ball is very good, providing some of the best comedy moments. These are the characters who also help to pull the boy hero through the tough times and help him see that he can be all that he wants to be if he just perseveres.

Indeed, the central premise of the movie - perseverance - is something that may be required from the more mature viewer - certainly until the movie warms-up a bit. This is a movie that will appeal more to children and wouldn't really fall into the genre of kids' movies that cross-over and appeal to adults too. Whilst I enjoyed it, it's not one that I would reach for too often.

Enjoyable fluff, it's certainly worth a watch - especially to keep the young-uns entertained.
