Weak script and a predictable storyline, but the visuals... Unbelievable. I have never seen computer animation as beautiful as this, and the action sequences are stunning in a wonderful znyderesque way. The kids must love this film. B
I understand the desire to gather an audience from readers of young adult novels, but with a title like this, owls of ga'hoole instantly became the butt of every joke. It just sounds so silly. It is silly. Visually stunning, but nothing to ever take seriously.
Relato fantástico protagonizado por búhos, que te deja boquiabierto por su hiperrealismo visual, y que si bien tiene momentos impresionantes, su historia y personajes luchan -como en todo filme de Zack Snyder- por encontrar corazón, alma y memorabilidad.
The phrase 'Visually Stunning' gets tossed around a lot, but it applies here. As for the story, it kind of feels like Snyder reacting to criticisms of 300's politics, but through the medium of anti-fascist cartoon owls. (Which is....a good thing, I think?) Solid fantasy adventure, although I can see younger children being traumatized by parts of this.
Looks incredible on a 3d tv, Snyder still needs to work on getting us emotionally involved with characters,he eschews genuine warmth and humour and relys on peril and danger instead.
However, he certainly creates some awe inspiring and at times breathtaking, beautiful sequences.
