Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
Holt was once a circus star, but he went off to war and when he returned it had terribly altered him. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt's children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
The movie has not much to do with the classic Disney animated movie. The first part of the movie is OK but a bit slow. From the moment the movie goes to NYC everything goes wrong. And what were all these close-ups on his eye (with reflection on it)? The elephant is way too dog-like, sometimes even human I think.
I'm so disappointed, because I was expecting something like the 'Beauty and the beast' remake but it's way too Tim Burton-ish for me. The story really ruins this movie that is so beautiful, aesthetically spoken.
