Not Great But Good
3 February 2017 | by zsofikamSee all my reviews

I must confess that this is the only Burbank Australia film that I've seen and this is actually a fairly good first impression. First the good, the music is generally very nice and haunting. Also, I like the animation. It's solid and flows very nicely with a great deal of greens and blues. The voice acting is solid. In addition to the solid and honestly rather lovely backgrounds, the character animation is also pretty good. Oliver looks so innocent and pure, the Artful Dodger looks a bit like Lampwick from Pinocchio, Mr Brownlow is suitably benevolent, and Sikes is certainly imposing. With regards to Fagin, his design doesn't make him appear particularly vile at first but I think that the idea was for him to initially appear benign to both Oliver and to the audience, so I have to disagree with the other review regarding that. Don't worry, he shows his true colours later on. My main criticism is that the story is that the story feels kind of rushed. On the whole, not a favourite but enjoyable.
