A simple story about waring nations and a Romeo and Juliet romance. There are complex turns that may be beyond the understanding of young children. The animation is phenominal. The long cast list includes a few heavy hitters that you recognized the moment you hear their voice and a whole lot of has beens are are just as unimpressive as voices as they are as actors. Could have used a lot more Eric Idle and a lot less Chris Kattan. Sorry Chris, loved ya on SNL, don't care for you voice over inabilities.

Proof that the more writers a film has the bigger piece of Delgo it is.

Well, I couldn't not watch the greatest box-office flop of all time. Ever heard of Delgo? Probably not, it came, it went and that was all. Delgo tells the story of two waring races and how tensions rise when the Princess of one side goes missing. It's a typical fantasy plot. The animation is nowhere near the quality you'd expect from 6-8 years of work on this. However, the designs are rather impressive in places, and a beautiful and original world, that we could vanish into could have been created. It's not as terrible as you might expect. The tension between the two tribes is fairly well built on and the adult themes of immigration and societies view of it, are quite well handled, for a kids film. Kilmer's aggressive, gambling, but ultimately good character, also gives some sense that the adults were being catered for at one stage. This film is garnering more attention now, due to the similarities it shares with the Avatar trailer, but something tells me that isn't going to fail as spectacularly.
