More Fluff than Substance
   The talking-animal genre of the computer-generated animation scene is more than a staple, it’s an empire.  And while names like Open Season, Over the Hedge, and Madagascar have earned their fair share of attention, don’t count Disney out when it comes to the concept of realizing a potential market.      At 94-minutes, The Wild is actually one of the lengthier animated features on the market.  The plot, while in no danger of being mistaken …

In THE WILD, Ryan (Greg Cipes) is a young lion who lives in a New York City zoo with his father Samson (Keifer Sutherland).

The trouble is that Samson is a creature born in captivity and only told Ryan those stories to keep him interested and make him proud of Dad. After a bitter dispute between father and son and purposefully disobedience, Ryan finds himself …

It is hard to criticize Disney's animated feature 'The Wild'. With so few G rated movies about, I would hate to even touch such a film. Nevertheless, 'The Wild' is a worthy adventure with a few entertaining moments that accentuate many elements of familiar film territory.     Ryan is a cub lion who suffers from an inferiority complex. He has yet to reach adolescence and his roar is just one notch above a kitten. His father, Samson, shares stories of his glory days with yarns …

I really enjoyed "The Wild," but I watched it feeling as if something was missing. It lacked the magic that I've come to expect in Disney's theatrical releases. Unlike "The Lion King" and "Cinderella," it lacked the "epic" aspect. Where "Hercules" and "The Emperor's New Groove" were laugh-out-loud funny, "The Wild" came across as a lukewarm comedy. It has a wonderful cast of voices including Kiefer Sutherland (who has the warm, fatherly voice downpat), Jim Belushi, Eddie Izzard (who almost steals …

I wanted to see this movie since the day it came out but lost the chance like some others. I wanted to see it for Eddie Izzard and for the fact that Madagascar stole their idea and got their film out first. How is this film going to be any different from Madagascar? Disney and Dream Works are in direct competition. The Wild was in production for quite sometime due to the fallout of Pixar and the discovery of a new animation team to finish the film. It just so happens that Madagascar was rushed and …
