IGOR (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

, an American/French movie, has originality and good animation. The script, with a little tweaking, could be a complete winner. But, the best thing about this film is the rendition of Johnny Nash’s song “I Can See Clearly Now the Rain is Gone” which is, ironically, sung by a group of blind children. One good song does not make a great movie.

Igor successfully makes Eva who, despite all Igor’s intentions, appears to be moving along the path of goodness and kindness rather than the original purpose of her creation...evilness incarnate.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The film engenders a certain likeableness reminiscent of Despicable Me, but this movie fails to reach that film’s level of entertainment value.
