Movie Reviews

Marco Polo Jr's long journey
Campbell J. Ford | Moss Vale, NSW, Australia | 08/02/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film was originally made in 1972 by Eric Porter Productions in Australia, as that country's first animated feature film. It was a 50-50 co-production deal between Porter and American artist and script-writer Sheldon Moldoff.
As one of the unit directors on the film, I thoroughly enjoyed working on it and, for its budget of maybe one-eighth of a contemporary Disney animated feature, I felt that it stood up pretty well.
But I always thought that it would benefit from a bit of tightening up, and so was interested when Ron Merk contacted me a few years ago with the news that he and Moldoff were going to rework the film.
In general, I think they have done a good job, although the climactic battle between Marco and the evil villain is not as good as I was hoping it would be. Nevertheless, I give it four stars - so go ahead and buy it, it's good fun!
