Nano Film Review #6 -- Turok: Son of Stone
Have you read my review of Dragonlance and don't want to waste your time reading my review of Turok? Just think of all the things I said about Dragonlance and make them the opposite and you get my review of Turok.
To start with, this movie is brutal. It would have received an R rating for sure had it been released in theaters.
This direct to video fantasy animated movie is everything Dragonlance is not. It is exciting, has characters you care about, smooth animation, and a strong story line.
This movie is 2D, but the animation style suits the story.
I do not recommend this movie for younger viewers. I don't recommend this movie for many older viewers, to be honest. It is a violent film about a violent world. It is, however, well made and an interesting counterpoint to Dragonlance.
Now if we could just have something that is in between the two. Something this well made, but with a redeeming storyline . . .
