In a small saloon, a man with a banjo begins to sing a song about Lucky Luke, and his recent capture of the Dalton brothers: Joe, William, Jack, and Averell.
After being sent to prison, the brothers receive a surprise visit from an attorney named Augustus Betting. He then explains to them that their Uncle Henry Dalton has been hung. Augustus then informs the Dalton brothers that their Uncle willed them the fortune he accumulated through a lifetime of robberies and hold-ups. However, in order to receive the money, the Dalton brothers must eliminate the judge and jury that sentenced Henry to death. Joe ecstatically wants the names, but is sidelined when the attorney explains that Henry Dalton wanted someone to supervise the executions to be sure they were carried out. Ironically, Henry wishes for Lucky Luke to make sure his last wishes are carried out. The attorney concludes that if the brothers fail to honor Henry's wishes, the fortune will then be donated to charity.
This is a great animated film that the whole family can enjoy. The First thing you notice is that the film is quite a bit darker than your usual Disney fair. This movie has talk of death , smoking, drinking and satire on religion. It's all played for laughs course.
A good thing with this movie is that if you show it to your kids they'll learn something from it.Lucky Luke almost always use his head and solves his problems with cunning. It teaches children to be smart. The screenwriter Pierre Tchernia was clearly smart when he wrote the film. This is not a stupid movie.
The voice acting( talking about the Swedish dub only have not seen the french original) is great although I think that ans Lindgren(R.I.P.) plays a few too many roles. But it is better than the dubbing of Lucky Luke: Daisy Town where one person played all roles. Which not only is an insult to the movie but also makes it unwatchable in Swedish. The same thing was done in English.
In the end La Ballade des Dalton is a fun well made movie for the whole family that's well worth a watch.
