A Stork’s Journey (2017)

“But that’s crazy dangerous… Great! Let’s go!!” – Stork

Number of Times Seen – 1 (3 May 2018)

Brief Synopsis – An orphaned sparrow raised by Storks tries to prove that he truly is a stork and is able to migrate south with the rest of the flock.

My Take on it – This is a film that doesn’t really have much to offer besides what one would expect.

I took my two young daughters to see it and I did get exactly what I had expected from this and thankfully so did both of them.

In that way, it is fun for kids but doesn’t offer much for adults like Disney and Pixar are famous for doing.

The storyline is quite simple and not unique in any way because it uses a very familiar plot yet superimposes it on a different species of members of the animal kingdom.

The animation is done well and there were shots of birds and their feathers that were animated exquisitely but the story lacks an extra kind of punch.

I did love the way that this film presents modern technology as utilized by birds and it was quite funny watching the forms of social networking, email communication, WiFi and even a form of twitter.

This isn’t the kind of film taht will win any big awards but it actually does manage to entertain on the level that they are trying to and both of my daughters can attest to that.

Even for me, this wasn’t at all a boring film, just one that doesn’t add much to the genre.

Bottom Line – Simple film that manages to be entertaining for kids but lacks much for adults to be enamored by. The story doesn’t feel as unique as one would hope and just feels as if it has superimposed a familiar storyline to another part of the animal kingdom. The way they use modern technology in the film is pretty funny and I enjoyed watching the birds communicate “online”. The animation was done quite well and there are a few great shots of birds and their feathers that looked amazing.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Actress Erica Schroeder who plays Richard’s “mother”, Aurora is the real life mother of actor Schroeder Kacmar, who plays baby Richard.  (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
