Reviews - What do customers think about Friends and Heroes: The One That Got Away?
moderately entertaining with some jarring elements Sep 9, 2009
I previewed this dvd in my search for short videos to show during children's church. My hopes were high but I ended up rejecting this one. The animation and storyline are contemporary, not too long, and will hold the attention of children age 6-11 well enough. Extremely short CGI Bible stories are worked into the narrative which is about a family of Christian Jews trying to sidestep the Romans in 1st century Alexandria, Egypt. Several things bothered me: the characters in the 2D animations are cute and personable, but the CGI Bible characters are rendered to look like Neanderthals. Also, the ending was jarring - in retaliation for stealing and causing harm to his family, the Christian father sets up the episode's "shady character" for a crime he did not commit, whereupon the man is hauled away by the Roman authorities. One other weird thing was that the shady characters all had Hispanic accents. All in all, this dvd might be better suited to view at home, with discussion afterward.
