Probably the most beautiful stop motion film ever created with the exception of Coraline. However, the characters were pretty flat, and I didn't like how the plot centered around the Dodo. I'm sick of Dodos in animated films. Nonetheless, Darwin's character was fun, Number 2 was sympathetic (although not the lead character), and the Queen was crazy awesome crazy. Each of the character designs were also great. Unfortunately, the soundtrack didn't always match up with the them/tone/genre of the film.…
It's basically Midnight Cowboy the sequel, so I REALLY like it. The film doesn't feel like it was made this decade, perhaps due to the film's content, or perhaps due to the way that content is handled. I really love cowboys, I really love films about social outcasts, I love character studies, I love Jared Leto's face, and I really love cowboys.
My only issue was the character, Eve, was mostly there to smile indulgently, be easily taken in, and find Woodroof charming against all odds. The half-baked romance between the two of them made the film drag more than once.
