Doorknob: The Movie is trash

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

LEGEND OF THE SEA is a predictable film, and the computer animation is not the best. The only thing separating most of the characters is how they look and their "funny" voices. It's only 76 minutes, but even that seems a bit long. There are pointless musical sequences, side-stories where nothing much happens, and it's difficult to care how the movie ends.

Older kids will be turned off by the animation. Younger kids will be bored with the story. Skip it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
