User Review


Rating: 5/10

this film's story is a bit like zootopia. But is much simpler, the story itself can be told with 20 minutes. And it has crucial loopholes and the ending doesn't make much sense. The animals in this film doesn't even have fur.

However, the production is quite interesting. This is a Chinese guy go America to set up a American company (mandoo picture) and hire Hollywood people to make a Chinese animation which speaks English(judge by the mouth). This is an independent production because he raises the money himself with investors. But in China, we only release the Chinese-dubbed version. And the Chinese crew changed some of the English text in the film to Chinese, but not important ones are remain English, so it is really weird looking at this film, the story sets in China, but you can see English worlds everywhere in the city. And it's been a box-office failure in China.
