Average Adaptation
11 January 2014 | by ronkoyamaSee all my reviews

This is an average adaptation. Just think of it as being a video game story and you will be fine. The voice actors are all decent for what they are being asked to do...bearing in mind that this review is only for the English version of this video which is the only version I have seen obviously. The characters are also obviously pretty one dimensional, not very deep, so it's hard to judge the talent of the voices here. They are all okay. The level of the writing is pretty weak as I said already, with it being the level of a video game, and the jokes are just stupid for the most part. This is a movie that is just for young kids.
