| Too short and rushed to make any kind of impact
The fact that it's animated doesn't bother me, quite the contrary. I love animation and I have enjoyed a lot of Burbank's output(Wind in the Willows especially). But both as an adaptations and on its own terms, I didn't care for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The voice acting is not bad, but I did think the animation could've been smoother and more vibrant, it felt very flat and sometimes even crude to me especially in the character designs. The music didn't leave much of a rousing feeling, overall I found it forgettable, while the writing is stilted with the more humorous parts contrived and the story is too rushed in pace(not helped by the too-short running time) and contains no excitement or sense of enchantment or inspiration. I didn't care much for the characters either, of course I was not expecting them to be as complex as they are in the book or the live-action Disney film(which in all honesty is much more ideal), but I was expecting them to be halfway interesting which they weren't here. Overall, didn't work for me, sorry. 2/10 Bethany Cox
