Movie Reviews

Stunning Animation!
W. G. Stockglausner | Columbia, MO USA | 10/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The animation in this new twist to an old story will leave one awestruck. The talent and dedication of this animation team rivals the likes of Pixar and Pacific Data Imaging. Check out the character motions, the background detail, the ominous coming of the storm, and the pan-out of the ark near the end. The music by Michael McDonald (remember the Doobie Brothers?) and the beautiful chart-topping Christian artist, Natalie Grant, is superb, especially her rendition of "There is a Rainbow". Don't be fooled by other reviewers with a one-track, 'everything is offensive' mind, who can't spell 'hurricane'. Let your children decide for themsleves what is entertaining and wholesome, and what is offensive. The Roach Approach Series would be a great Christmas gift for a child you love. It may teach them a great deal about love of family, steadfastness, devotion, tolerance, honesty, and faith in God."

"Like mentioned in another review, the animation/story was very generic. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Not even a rental."
The worst kind of "Christian" videos.

"I ordered this, hoping to show it to kids at my Episcopal church. Thank goodness I previewed it. As the roaches set up the story of Noah's ark, they are worried about an approaching hurricaine. One tells the other not to worry as hurricaines are "just God's way of clearing away the things we don't need." Is this really what the creators of this video believe? In light of the suffering caused by Katrina, the callousness of this sentiment takes my breath away."
The real story

"I like these guys and I like their work, as far as the hurricane deal goes read this:

"Barry recalls his drama of making "Don't Miss the Boat." "It's so ironic," he says. "We're doing our first movie about the biggest storm in history and what happens down here? We got hit by four hurricanes, and we were under a strict deadline. We'd have to break down all the computers and shut everything off. It was an absolute nightmare.""
