What I say: My younger brother, my older sister, and I sat down and watch this. Let me tell you this was the longest hour and something minutes in my life. I felt like I was sitting there for hours and hours! To teenagers, this is the dumbest thing made since Spongebob! I mean I would be more than happy to watch Spongebob over that! EVEN DORA! But for kids, they love it. I don’t understand why they enjoy it, but they do. My brother had sat down and watched it with us and seemed pleased with it after watching this. For children, it’s fine. For teens and up, it is childish!
For people who have seen the Swan Princess movies, this is pretty much the same thing, only with Christmas! Prince with Princess, Villain sometime in the movie kidnaps the Princess; Princess somehow saves Princess, Mix in some Christmas and -poof- it’s over! I mean really, same plot line, every time!
The characters cover all the bases, the Princess, the Prince, their parents, the villain, and the 3 or 4 talking animals. I mean, come on! These characters got old 3 movies ago!
When you see the first Swan Princess, it is in traditional animation, but when you see this one, it is in CG! OMG that made it even worse! I like CG animation on stuff like that! That tells ya something. It was still and it it actually took a dip in quality.
Film: 5/10 (Add 2 points if you are under 7)
