Lijun Sun takes a Chinese martial arts period piece and turns it into an animation. The result is Legend of a Rabbit.The story is rather light, even with a run time that just surpasses 80 minutes. It isn't that the pacing is slow, because the film moves from scene to scene rather quickly using a lot of fade outs. It's more the meandering of the plot that is wasteful. What seems like something so simple ends up getting prolonged just to make the movie longer.The martial arts is amusing to a point. With CG animation, it isn't difficult to have the characters go all out with over the top moves and fight scenes; unfortunately, the action is not the most memorable element of this production.The voice work is OK. Fan Wei is an acceptable Tu. Yan Ni and Zhang Fengyi are more fitting to their characters, Peony and Slash respectively. Zhang Yishan is a bit awkward as Biggie.Ultimately, Legend of a Rabbit has nothing that really stands out. It is merely a Chinese CG animation that is quick sit through.
