Review: Strange Magic
By soulef on Jan, 26 2015 | See all reviews by soulef
In a musical inspired by Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the world of fairies, goblins and elves is explored with tons of pop songs, and a sugary sweet lesson of love.
As nice and good as the message can be, there is no real spirit here. The animation may be decent, and the cast is fine - although is it just me or did mings dialect keep changing - this is a poorly conceived musical extravaganza. STRANGE MAGIC is hardly more than what should have been a straight to video animated feature. At best, it is a tunefully cheerful collection of pop songs with decent animation. At worst, it is a meandering and dull hour and forty minutes of musical theatre that will be grating to anybody over the age of seven.
