MUNE: THE GUARDIAN OF THE MOON (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.4|5.0 Starsìì

Mune: Guardian of the Moon—cool concept with unusual and unique animated characters—suffers from poor character development and inability to appeal to an international audience due to lack of  clear and sufficient backstory. The backstory that was provided was 'dropped into your lap' without enough time to absorb it before the movie took off. Audience may feel itself slipping and sliding on ice trying to make sense of the storyline unless a little research precedes viewing. Some voicing appears to lack flow as if the cast has not been fully prepared for dialogue delivery. This French film, distributed by USA GKids in America, complicates itself beyond a young child’s comprehension of storyline.

Storyline

An imaginary world’s harmony becomes upset and heroes set out to re-establish peace and order.

Thank You to Directors Alexandre Heboyan and Benoît Philippon for directing efforts. Thank you to Producers Dimitri Rassam, Aton Soumache, and Alexis Vonarb for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Read a plotline before you go.
