THE OPINION:

A magical movie with a steller cast. Impressive animation and a great story. The fact that the monsters of myth is done correctly is a power plus point. But it does get a little sappy about the whole romance thing at times and if you're not a fan of these kinds of movie then it's not for you.
I GIVE IT (9 STARS)

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS)

+ ANATOMACLY CREATED UNICORN (The Unicorn wasn't just a horse with a horn glued to her head, it was done correctly)
+ OTHER MONSTERS (The harpy and the Red Bull were just cool)
+ STORY (The story structure was just perfect)
+ LIKABLE CHARACTERS (The human cast was a delight, even the evil people)
+ STELLER CAST (An impressive cast lend their voices for such a small and unknown movie)
+ MUSIC (The music was most impressive in this movie)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

- LOVE STORY (The whole love story subplot got sappy to me)

And Finally:

- NOT FOR EVERYONE (If you're not a fan of this genre then this is not the movie for you)
