3.0 out of 5 stars Strange, harsh and mystical, 17 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret of Kells [DVD] (DVD)
A wierd and mystical story, and quite bloody. I don't see it as a complete children's movie, which it really isn't, considering it was origianally meant for a more adult audience and then reworked to be more mainstream and appeal to a younger audience. I guess what's going on will need a bit of explaining for those children not versed in the story of Ireland, with the burning and slaughter of monasteries by the vikings, as well as the fading of the old powers as Christianity takes hold, at the same time as ancient evil awakes and threatens the fey as well as the humans...The story is a little odd and confusing to me. It is quite interesting artistically, and the simplified celtic style makes it quite uniqe animation wise. Some of the scenes, especilally those involving the mystical creature Aisling, are quite beautiful and skillfully rendered, and her song is quietly magical. All toghether Im confused as to weather I like it as a piece or not, or just fragments of it, but Im fascinated all the same. :-)
