Movie Reviews

A fun film that looked great on Blu
Steve Kuehl | Ben Lomond, CA | 06/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An underdog of a film, but the question of how the Blu transfer would turn out was being asked since the announcement this year. In brief summary, it turned out great.

We have a story of fantasy, peril, comic relief, bravery and action all set against a beautiful world where gravity has a much different outcome. The picture clarity looked amazing. There are brief blips in the motion here and there, but overall the quality turned out vivid, crisp and articulate. Reference the wide pan shots where the characters are extremely small; on the DVD they were little blips, on the Blu they were distinguishable with arms and legs.

The sound was outstanding. All five channels are used extensively, and it appears no imagination was spared on how to make these floating villages and action sequences surround you.

The special features are catered to the kids who follow stories like this with trading cards and such. The Universe of DH, Character Biography and Dragon Gallery options can be surfed through like reading a book on all the creatures and locations we just watched. The Interview With Forest Whitaker lasts less than five minutes and shows the production process of recording in studio.

I have not watched the original series, but I hope they continue with more films of this quality and story. For the parents wondering on content, the PG rating on language is for fart stuff, the fantasy action and scary images will most likely be scary for 6 and under. But between the music, scope of pictures and action I was noticing kids younger than that loving it as it played today."
Surprise

"I watched what I could of the original cartoon. And when I saw that a movie was made, I though it was going to be quaint and cute. But I didn't think it was going to be great. I thought just like many cartoon CG movies, it was going to be amusing but that's about it. Once the menu loaded up, I got the first impression that something different was going on. The sound quality was thick and the surround sound even on my cheep speakers was gripping. Then the actual movie started, and all preconceptions fell to the ground. The movie is DE-TAILED. And beautiful! The vision of the backgrounds of the show were amplified by the merciless CGI.

Another thing in this movie is a great beating heart. Care is all over this picture. Most CG animated DVD movies get the job done, but there is not much to get attached to. This move is detailed even between the lines.

Forest Witaker did a great Lian Chu. His deep voice fit. This is an AWESOME movie. Not just for kids, anyone, open to it, would enjoy this movie to pieces. Absolute recommend."

"My 6 year old son borrowed this movie from my brother and I was a bit skeptical, assuming it would be a second rate children's animated movie. We started watching it and I was immediately impressed with just the images. Beautiful, creative and fantasy like. The story was great, the characters lovable and had a very nice message that wasn't delivered with too much sugar.
I am certainly purchasing this dvd for our family collection!"
Absolutely stunning

"as the other reviewers have stated, this movie is an absolute visual treat! i had never heard of it, but since it was very nicely priced, i picked it up on a whim and consider this the most well-spent 10.99 ever. It took several viewings to really get an appreciation for the story line as i was so distracted by the stunning imagery. the plot is well-written and enjoyable, but the artistry is amazing. i am stunned, and somewhat envious of the creativity and am hard-pressed to believe that it was computer-generated. there is nothing about this movie that i do not love. even the music is well-done. i cannot recommend this title enough."
