PIXIES (Video Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 1.8|5.0 Starsì

forgets that people go to movies to be entertained. If there is a message, let the audience gently discover it in reflection, don’t beat them over the head with it. The script needs an overhaul. The animation needs an upgrade to the DreamWorks/Pixar level. Originality needs to be addressed and believe-ability needs to be served (even though the movie is about pixies). Director Sean Patrick O’Reilly’s first directed theatrical release needs serious work, but potential can often be realized in future attempts.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Sean Patrick O’Reilly for directing effort. Thank you to Producers Michelle O’Reilly and Sean Patrick O’Reilly for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Pixie King (voice of Christopher Plummer), Michelle Meyers (voice of Alexa PenaVega), William (voice of Carlos PenaVega), Sam (voice of Geoff Gustafson), Gail (voice of Alison Wandzura), Pixie Page (voice of David Milchard), Worker Pixie (voice of Kiefer O’Reilly), Joe Beck (voice of Sean Patrick O’Reilly), Henry Meyers/Old Man Tom/Vincent (voice of Eric Pollins), and Max (voice of Tyler Nicol).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. Unfortunately, even though this animated feature has really good voicing, it needs a better script and more dollars put into its animation department. Director Sean Patrick O’Reilly may think about making documentaries if he wants to impress the audience with message films.
