1,000 Words? Not nearly enough to do this film justice. . Also, we'd beallowed more than 1K Words to discuss a cinematic marvel. The realtitle is "Chasseurs de Dragon".(Don't confuse this with "DragonHunter"!) Name any specific area for evaluating or critiquing a CGIfilm and "Hunters" is flawlessly top-notch. Every frame, quiteliterally, is a work of art!
Immediately after viewing my rental copy, I ran out and bought one. Inareas such as creative/artistic design and rendering,conceptualization, technical precision and execution, music soundtrack,and sound engineering "Dragon Hunters" set a new CGI standard for 2008,and could have served as the yardstick by which all future CGIendeavors were measured.
In fact, at times, remarkably, I felt it was almost too good! Theunparalleled meticulous attention to detail was almost distracting. Oneexample: The nerdy little side-kick/manager character had faint acnescars on his face! Can you believe that?
After experiencing this surreal French production I'm prompted to issuethis warning: Pixar and Dreamworks, you'd best stand up and takenotice! "Hunters" from an artistic standpoint, has both great highbrowand lowbrow appeal. When Salvador Dali had dreams at age 10, I'm surethey were reminiscent of "Hunters". There is something in this moviefor everyone. The acting, by the way, was delightful. Forrest Whitakergave a firm but nuanced performance.
