Riverdance: The Animated Adventure
provides more understandable and relatable entertainment fare than Irish folklore films such as The Secret of the Kells or Song of the Sea. While river dancing may earn a reputation of some of the best dancing in Europe, the repetitive use of the dancing runs itself into the ground in this animated presentation. While the idea of the importance of keeping a lighthouse well lighted is relatable, it is difficult to understand the insertion of the Irish Elk and its place in this story. Nevertheless, the animation is fabulous, the story flows well, and it is an interesting watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The movie works more as a children’s watch than an adult watch.
