Song of the Sea: 9.8/10
After watching Fifty reasons the society stinks and hollywood sucks, I was fed up. A lot of directors tried to make movies with an edge and emotions, and yet people went nuts on something like this bad... Why??? **** like this does not deserve to become this popular. There's no value in it. And yet nobody seen this movie before and rolled their eyes!!! ****!!!
The Song of the Sea is brought to you by the guys behind The Secret of Kells, one of the best 2D animation movie in recent times. Because of this, I expect great news, and sure I did. The Song of the Sea is better than The Secret of Kells in terms on the scale it has. It has more character conflict, pain, beautiful animation, story scale, and whimsical elements. I was pretty impressed on the dark tones it has ie dystopian family, for a kids movie.
Sadly, I do not really like some of the characters, especially the main character, Ben. Ben was so mean to her sister throughout the whole film without good reasons. Also, the side characters seems cliched and kind of made me rolled my eyes. This is because The secret of Kells has similar characters with similar roles, and by having similar characters, it made me felt like the filmmakers made a template and just use it again.
Anyways it's a awesome film to check out. Really love it.
