Director: Michael Hegner, Stefan Fjeldman |
THOSE who have been yearning for Alan Rickman to play a villain again will find some pleasure in his voiceover as a megalomaniac fish, Joe. He gets all the best lines and delivers them with sneering relish in this rather primitive animation from Denmark. The story should appeal to very small children, but anyone accustomed to the sophistication of Hollywood animations will be disappointed.
Three children accidentally turn into fish after swallowing a potion concocted by a professor who believes that global warming will flood the Earth. They have 48 hours to capture the antidote from evil Joe, or else they'll be fish forever. The climax is exciting but only Joe makes an impression. The other characters are just a bit, well, wet.
