“Norm of the North: King Sized Adventure” (2019)

I would like to remind you all that legendary director Richard Williams spent 30 years of his life painstakingly trying to get an artsy, beautiful looking animated film made, only to have it taken from him and completely butchered by execs, and the original version as Williams intended it to be seen has yet to be released. And yet we live in a world where not only does Norm of the North exist, but it somehow managed to spawn two sequels within three years. That’s literally all I could think of while watching the third film in this disaster of a series; how there are so many amazing and creative animated films that we could’ve gotten, but we’ll never get to see, and yet trash like this exists. If I could use one word to describe this film, it would be “tedious.” This is one of the most tedious and boring films I’ve ever seen in my life. The film’s plot is incredibly straightforward, but it moves at such a sluggish pace. It painfully stretches a cliché 22-minute long animated TV episode to a near torturous feature length running time. The script is a disaster, as the film goes on and on and on about the message of the importance of keeping your word, and finds itself home to completely asinine dialogue, and ludicrous plot developments. I don’t know how these films keep getting worse, but hey, I’m sure the fourth film will find a way.
