Thirteen years ago, the power-mad General Zhong seized control of Planet Bana and tore it to pieces in the process. Now splintered into hundreds of shards, Zhong is Bana's evil-overlord, ruling with an iron fist. Enter Spark, a teenage monkey and his friends, Vix, a battle-ready fox, and Chunk, a tech-savvy pig. Spark learns of Zhong's secret plan to take over the universe by capturing a giant space monster known as the Kraken - a beast that has the power to create black holes. If Zhong manages to harness the Kraken's power, he'll have history's deadliest weapon at his fingertips, and it's up to Spark and his friends to stop him. Spark's journey takes him to the farthest reaches of the universe, where he encounters great dangers and discovers the secret of his true identity. An action-packed space adventure full of humor and heart, Spark is the story of a boy who takes on great responsibility and in the process discovers his rightful place in the universe. Written by
Note: This is a preview review and does not review the whole movie. A new review that will cover the whole movie will come after the movie is released.
In the world of animation, only 5 animation studios can exist and have critically acclaimed and commercially successful movies: Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Dreamworks Animation, Illumination Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios(well, they make box office success at the least.....). This means that any other animation studios, especially foreign ones will have to live at the bottom of the barrel and try to sweep up any money that they can. This doesn't stop some from trying their best, and Toonbox Entertainment finally succeeded at something with the surprising success of The Nut Job. With a sequel already in place for this year, they fill in the gap with their new movie: Spark: A Space Tail. I mean, it can't be as bad as it looks right?
Sadly, it is a bad movie. The animation looks good at times, but the rest feels motionless and looks very plasticy. The voice acting sounds so weird that you swear this is a foreign dub of a movie, like Rock Dog. The characters are a special type of characters that i like to call "That Character". We have "The Chosen One", "The Big Bad", "The Power Sidekick" and so so much more. Oh by the way there's a HUUUUGGGEEEEEEEEE monster that's literally the Kraken: no it's named the Kraken!
This looks to be a big disappointment to what could have been a game changer like Shrek or Toy Story, but now looks like a turd. I guess if there's one that they will gain after this release, they may just get a new lesson in how to make a movie. (*** out of **********, NOT INTERESTED)
