Tad: The Lost Explorer (2012)

“You’ll be the best treasure hunter when you grow up.” – Grandma

Number of Times Seen – 1 (17 Nov 2022)

Brief Synopsis – A lonely construction worker with dreams of being a famed explorer, gets the chance to live his dream when he must travel to Peru to help out a famed scientist.

My Take on it – Great idea that works quite well.

They do a great job of telling this kind of story and the film’s message about living your dream rings true throughout.

The story is very reminiscent of an Indiana Jones type adventure and that adds so much to help enhance the enjoyment of things.

The use of animation lets the film makers do some things that wouldn’t be possible if this was live action instead.

The plot is good, but since this is geared towards a younger crowd, some elements don’t work as well on a whole.

The animation is great and that helps keeps the momentum of the story working so well.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Star Wars themes are used as incidental music through the movie (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
