beauty and the beast and tim brton directed alice in wonderland. now we have a revisiting of dumbo. colin farrell is the horseman who returns from the war and is assigned to looking after the elephants. it's his kid who realises that young baby dumbo, who has these huge ears, actually can fly, then later on, audiences discover it and it transforms the fortunes of the medici circus. here is a clip. fly little one. magic dust. you can see it doesn't skimp on visual spectacle. the cast includes danny devito, eva green and michael keaton, it's a tim burton movie, so in every corner there is stuff going on. here is the strange thing, although it is fairly impressive to see, you know, a flying elephant brought to life through the miracle of cg, what the film doesn't have is the simplicity that the cartoon had, and it also doesn't have the emotional clout of it. i spent a lot of it thinking this is very visually impressive, a whole section of the film plays out in this future land fun fair, and you are looking at the design, thinking that is really designed to within an inch of its life.
