Hi-Jinks With A Lynx
on 28 December 2013
So there I was on Christmas Day opening all my goodies, when I found that my parents had bought me this as a stocking filler. I must admit that I had never heard of this before, and I only got around to this afternoon before I had a chance to watch it.
This does have quite a bit of comedy and the animation is really good. With animals being picked off a animal rescue centre has gone all out with security measures, but they are up against the famous hunter, Newmann. As the animals are being stolen some of them manage to make a break for it and start a rescue mission to save the others. Led by Felix the lynx who needs to save his girlfriend, this is full of comic adventure. Felix, Gus, a paranoid chameleon, Betty, a mountain goat, and Astarte, a falcon, of course along with Rupert, a mole are on their rescue mission, warning other animals, whilst being tracked by Newmann.
A story of love and friendship, all roads lead to Noah, an eccentric millionaire, whose heart may be in the right place, but is a bit misguided. Can the animals succeed and save the others?
This is rated PG and some very little children may be distressed by the fact that a couple of animals are killed in this, but otherwise this is certainly okay for all the family. Showing that not only Hollywood can produce such films this was a British/ Spanish collaboration by Spanish based Kandor Graphics. In all this is quite a good computer animated film, but it isn't as polished as others in this category are.
