Review

Our Score
Dubbed by a voice cast to die for, this CGI tale follows a group of animals from around the world who are stranded in Africa by a slew of ecological disasters. A polar bear from the Arctic, two giant tortoises from the Galapagos islands, an Australian kangaroo - you get the picture - join forces with a meerkat and a vegetarian lion to battle humans for water. The environmental messages and cod philosophy - humans bad, animals good - may be rather too muddy and simplistic for adults, but the slapstick, Looney Tunes-style fun may well keep small children amused. And the lively soundtrack certainly helps.

Summary

A lion and a meerkat go in search of water after the building of a dam cuts off their supply. On the way, they meet various other animals whose habitats have been destroyed by humans and resolve to do something about it. Animated comedy with the voices of James Corden, Stephen Fry, Jim Broadbent and Joanna Lumley.
