Robinson Crusoe Reviews
The intrepid adventures of Crusoe and his band of talking animals are sanitised for family-friendly viewing. There are no references to slave trading, cannibals, religious conversions or the rampant misuse of power.Still, Robinson Crusoe is spirited enough to appeal to its target audience.
Robinson Crusoe has its share of action and the brisk pace does help. The animal and bird characters are no doubt lovely to watch. The sight gags and snappy one-liners will also elicit a few laughs from children. However, after a point it can at times veer into slapstick zones. A slightly better screenplay too would have enhanced the film further. But by and large, it doesn't detract anything from the general message of the film, which is about the importance of teamwork, collaboration, and friendship in tough situations. The rendering of the animation itself is decent, without being over-saturated. Fun fare for kids.
The only thing that works for the film is the visuals. Everything else is not worth your time or money.
Like a typical kids’ movie, Robinson Crusoe is fairly black and white. Crusoe and Tuesday/Mak are the heroes, sharing a special bond with the other animals – the other good guys. The cats are the bad guys, and will stop at nothing to get what they want. At the end of the day, it’s a hero’s victory.
Overall, the result may not be a tad insipid yet it may appeal to some.
It's almost as if this was made for five-years-olds by five-year-olds.This is strictly only for the kids.
