Bad Voiceacting the Movie
3 March 2018 | by bakividsSee all my reviews

It's a weird mix of western art and anime animation. The voice acting is unbareable. The characters sound like they're constantly on helium or have stereotypical "retard" voice. One moment the voice acting was anywhere nice was when they were babies and had normal-ish voices. The mistranslation is strong in this movie. The characters mention things that have never happened or use strange words that don't make sense in the moment. The best I can describe it is little kids attempting to voice act and thinking pitching your voice extremely high is good enough. Not to mention the "German" dude with the thick English accent. The movie would've been a million times better if they hired good voice actors. Not to mention the monkey is a blatant King Julian rip off. I swear after this movie you'll hate the name "Brian" because they scream "Brian!" Every 5 seconds!
