Overall a solid film with great casting, an interesting story and stunning visuals! They translated the 2D style beautifully into 3D in this film without sacrificing any trademarks expressions on any character and used this new look to their advantage when it came to the story telling. I wish I could see it again in theaters, but for now, I will settle for a dvd copy instead!
Forgettable story aside, the film is a visual treat, full of joy and zaniness.
It’s an old-fashioned escapade with a helplessly likable hero—a criminal who can’t help but be better at the former than the latter, despite his best efforts.
