Stunningly rendered with beautiful attention to detail
13 November 2016 | by warwickdavis-44324See all my reviews

A seemingly conventional story for the eternal battle between good and bad transforms an ancient myth into an epic animation that can move both younger and older audiences.

Visually quite par, the film keeps a fast pace, without excluding significant parts of Bilal's ascend as a hero, standing for his people's equal recognition, setting the milestone for a new era in the Arabic world of his time. Attention has been paid to every detail concerning the recreation of characters that have since appeared in most school books, contributing toward the education of numerous generations on the values of human rights and racial equality.

Stunningly rendered with beautiful attention to detail, the film eventually falters in its pace and storytelling.
