We saw this film today with a friend who had free tickets. It was ninety minutes of by the book heros journey / Star Wars gubbins but with owls. Heavy on useless exposition, nonsense myth speak and irrelevant characters – leaving no time whatsoever to develop any depth for the leads – maybe they stuck too close to the book. Everyone did things for the sake of moving the by the numbers plot along. Visually stunning graphics but all the owls looked the same – they didn’t even have the advantage of being cute or distinctively caricatured as they would in Pixar.
