Never before have I seen such grace, such beauty, such flawless execution as Frog Kingdom. It was as if I had achieved Nirvana, every second of viewing I was mesmerized with the stunning animation and the fantastic story telling. Princess Froglegs is a realistic and strong female lead, something which we need to see more of in modern day film. She is a strong, independent frog who doesn't need any man. Honestly, I can't understand how there could possibly be a single negative opinion on this MASTERPIECE. My only grudge is that there were not enough lines from Devo, who is clearly the best character. The voice acting was brilliant, everybody felt so real and you could hear the emotion in their voice. By far the best actor had to be Serpent. It send chills down my spine, my heart racing as he spoke of his cunning plans to wreak havoc on Frogville. Truly a perfect film for all the family too enjoy, with fantastic role models and an enthralling storyline. Perfect 10.

I was hoping for the best...
Let me start off saying that I had high hopes for this movie since there are some big names in here, but that's all. The animation was terrible. The mouths barely moved when they talked. Deja Vu, kind of like a bad kung fu movie. I could only watch it because of my friends 7-year-old, but even she didn't like it. Honestly if this was in the bargain bin at Wal-Mart for $1.00 I would feel I spent too much money on it. It was terrible and there was no hope to give it more than 1 star. There was just no redeeming qualities at all. I would say to pass this one up, but then again maybe for the very little ones they may enjoy it.

Positive: Animation quality was good, but not great. Negatives: 1. Most notably the actors chosen for English voice over were both mismatched to their characters and just plain robotic and boring. 2. Dialogue was just as bad; pointless without meaning or feeling and with no direction (conveying storyline/plot convincingly); didn't seem to have a targeted audience in mind either to young viewers or broadly intelligent enough for all ages; the worst was not being synced to the characters mouth movements which turned out to be an irritating distraction. 3. Animation quality as mentioned above was good but it also had the distracting quality of being too much (too misdirecting) in each scene making it difficult to focus on the central character's actions each moment. 4. Nothing creative in the storytelling: the usual princess doesn't want to be married, especially to the many unlikeable suitors; just wants to freely follow her own dreams but then, of course, one suitor is a little different from the rest which could affect her plans. The usual evil adversary to add an antagonist to the story which didn't turn out very believable.
