Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

In order to fully enjoy this Spanish-language adventure (subtitled in English), you might want to watch the previous films first. Leo is a sweet character, but his sidekicks don't make much sense without the context of the earlier movies. That said, La Leyenda del Chupacabras is action-packed and has a positive message about fighting for what's right and not jumping to conclusions. The animation is fun to watch, as are the wacky sidekicks, a group that includes colorful monsters and walking skulls. Younger kids may have trouble with the subtitles and the scary images, but older kids and adults who know the back story may find this Scooby-Doo-like story entertaining.
