Ah! Yet another movie review! This one is a bit more exciting though than the other recent movie reviews I did! Phase 4 Films sent me Donkey X to check out. Well, more like for Sophia I should say. Just released this month, Donkey X is based on the 400 year old Spanish classic tale "Don Quijote de la Mancha." It follows the Rucio, the most adventurous, brave, and mischievous donkey of  the Castile, as he tells the true story of the legendary Don Quixote. Rucio jumps at the opportunity to join Don Quixote on his quest to battle The Half Moon Knight and overcome the dangerous obstacles that lurk them on the way. This film has a 90 minute run time and is rated PG.
The dialog is actually witty, the timing natural and the narrative strong but Donkey X plods along with far too much complexity to be grasped by its target audience. Adults, especially those familiar with Miguel de Cervantes` classic tale, will have no trouble keeping the plot together but will likely be off-put by the film`s failure to settle into a consistent theme (despite a fairly lengthy 90-minute runtime). The ingredients for fun are all present and believe it or not, the visuals are pretty stunning (contributing to the film often being heralded as Spanish cinema`s finest computer animation effort to date). The trouble is that the prose is a bit clumsy and, interestingly, not the type of perplexity foreign adaptations are usually known for. The PG rating should definitely be taken seriously. While domestic efforts seem to earn it for less, Donkey X does contain a few references that parents may not appreciate (such as multiple breast references/ gags, a rather gross urine segment and some cross dressing humor).
In all, Donkey X is by no means a masterpiece though it does have much more heart and entertainment then most animated features that have undergone the dub & re-release treatment. It is undoubtedly flawed but may serve as an hour-and-a-half`s worth of entertainment for an animation-purist looking beyond the efforts of the "big boys on the block". Perhaps the best way to surmise this feature is to take a look at the tagline used to promote it: From the producers who saw Shrek. One look at the title character confirms this statement but if you let yourself take it at face value, it`s kind of cute in its own weird way.
