What is this? A kid's movie with the underlying theme of death and regret. I have never been more depressed in my life. Sure there were a few small humorous moments that broke the tension, but c'mon! While the colors were great (especially on blu-ray) this is more of an adult story that got stuck in animation. While the length is ok, I can't imagine kids being able to sit still for the full 96 minutes. The idea behind these new animated movies is that while it is entertaining to kids, adults can also take something away from watching it. This definitely has a theme for adults but it is a long and drawn out depressing one. If you are only so-so on cartoons anyway- definitely pass on this!
