Justin and the Knights of Valour (2013)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Family Film
This was a surprisingly great movie that I enjoyed throughout 🙂 . It has a simplistic storyline (a boy on his quest to become a Knight) but it also has very good moments that made it more unique. I loved that the film set up the world well within the first five minutes without over boring. I also enjoyed the hints to the bad guys and as we learnt more, I understood why they were “fighting back” but the film still had me wanting Justin to win. A really liked the world such as the loss of the Knights, the world design and the tower with the Monks 🙂 . The main characters they introduced were all quite good especially Justin (Freddie Highmore) who was likable and Talia (Saoirse Ronan) who was not annoying 😛 ! However, some of the side characters, such as Melquiades (David Walliams), who came of a tad too over-the-top which did become a tad irritating. However, the overall characters were good and the development of the story kept you captivated and intrigued throughout 🙂 . The animation was also great, I liked the song near the beginning “Heroes” and the last battle scene was pretty good. Also, I liked the small magic elements, the character connections to each other and overall was very enjoyable. A really great film with a pretty good concept of a story that is entertaining 😀 . Great for the entire family and I think I would recommend this little gem 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
