End Of The Week Shorts #9 extract: Shark Tale (2004)
A cliched story told very well.
With great characters and some clever world building, Shark Tale is an easy watch and a lot of fun. The animation hasn't aged too well, especially in regard to textures and details, but is still pretty good - the wider shots of the ocean in particular. (Finding Nemo undoubtedly outshines this technically though).
One of the things that makes this film so fun is certainly the directorial approach that mixes well with the lively script and great soundtrack.All of these elements come together to tell a tale of lies, immaturity, growth and finding oneself that we've all seen a trillion times - though, only a few in the ocean with shark slaying fish.
