success of DreamWorks’ Home suggests
parents are becoming increasingly desperate for two hours of relative calm at
the weekend. You’d need to be off-the-wall insane to shell out £30-odd for
everyone to experience this über-bland German digimation: it’s little
more than colours and shapes on a screen. The workable idea of doing Noah’s
story from the animals’ POV goes singularly underdeveloped in this redub, which
borrows heavily from Finding Nemo for
its character design and low-watt separation narrative, while treating us to
Chris Evans – and not even the Avengers
one – as a talking hermit crab. Ready the bargain bins.
