Summary: A confused film in every way. Some beautiful backgrounds and settings, done in different styles. Characters however were all very Disney-esque, so the viewer has to come to terms with the hero looking like an ancient garden gnome. Added to that conflict of styles, newsreels of Hitler feature ... it could have been a good film, but this was such a mish-mash I'm afraid I was disappointed.
Excerpt: This is a great animated good vs. evil fantasy film involvng wizards, fairies and elves. From the mind of Ralph Bashki comes this entertaining story mixing propaganda films in with the world of fantasy. I went back and forth on how to rate the PQ as it is somewhat problematic. Let me address each problem individually. 1) Grain: As is in this website's review the argument is made grain vs. no grain when it comes to animation.
