Justin and the Knights of Valour Review

Written by

Director:
Studio: Arc Entertainment
Running Time: 96 mins

Verdict: 1.5 / 5

When you make it your mission to try and disprove critics’ rating on an animation you reckon could be absolutely amazing – it’s probably best to prepare yourself of the possibility of being completely wrong. I was so disappointed by Justin and the Knights of Valour, my heart practically broke – and my expectations for it weren’t even that high…

Keen on following in the footsteps of his legendary grandfather, Justin – a young red-headed scrawny boy – sets out on a quest, defying the law and his father’s wishes, in order to pursue his lifetime dream of becoming a heroic knight. Encouraged by his beloved grandmother, Justin takes on the challenge and naively ventures out on his own to get some knight training. He meets a host of quirky and crazy characters along the way.

The first thing I thought of when I first so the trailer to this film was “Hey! That looks a lot like Dreamworks’ How To Train Your Dragon” and I was quite excited to check out how Justin and the knights of Valour would be in comparison – the result was a terribly weak and unsatisfactory production. Lacking in real adventure, humour and structure, this film was mediocre and boring, while presenting a predictable and unoriginal storyline. Despite the impeccably amazing CGI animation, the action is clumsy and the plot is totally unimaginative.

I wouldn’t recommend seeing this film, unless you have kids… really small kids and it is your absolute last resort to keep them busy… Ok no, maybe it’s not really THAT bad, but I still wouldn’t consider it unless I was absolutely desperate to be entertained and did care about the quality, only then would I deem it worth the watch…
