Movie Review: Song of the Sea (2014)

Song of the Sea (2014)

2/5 rating.

I never heard of this movie until it popped up on my Netflix feed.  There is a reason for that.

The animation is ok, but the story is drawn out and long winded.  My kids kept leaving the room as they couldn’t bear to sit through the drudgery.

It is a sweet enough story but definitely I am happy I didn’t waste money at the theatre to see it.  I wish I didn’t waste the time at home either.  I’m not sure how old the story is, but this version did not translate well.  I found it confusing and hard to keep up with.  That could be due to the lack of knowledge as to the origins of the tale.  Feels like a generational retelling but could be a new story as well.

Unless you are looking to just waste time….don’t bother.
