is not what it appears to be. At all.
Though gorgeously rendered in eye-popping detail, I could not get beyond one simple fact: this was the most depressing & disturbing kid's movie I've seen in...well...ever. Monster House runs a modest second. Wait. Forget kid's movie. Change that to ANY movie. What makes it so awful? How about kidnapping, torture, slavery, war, and genocide. I swear that 15 minutes into the film I was just about ready to open a vein.
