Lucky Luke (2009) – review

DVB – italian audio track

Long story short: direct transposition of a famous french comic; a cowboy saves a small city without killing anyone… until now…

A good comic-to-film version – the only things missing are the Daltons and the stupid dog, even if I must admit I’m happy about the fact the latter is not here…

This is a mix of drama and comedy, located in the old Far West; locations are good, ideas are quite fresh, music fits well, SFX are more than adequate; actors did a good job, too.

The only thing I didn’t like are the French writings (often with the English translation near them) on the wall, signs etc… I understand this is a French movie, after all, but, as it’s located in the U.S.A., a better choice would be to use subtitles… apart that, it’s a mildly entertaining movie, with some laughter here and there; I loved the cinematography, that in few instances reminded me Bunraku somehow, and it was always over the top, to subtly remember the viewers they are watching a movie based on a comic.

Greatly reccomended to any comic lover (anime fans may not enjoy it too much) and of course to the kids of all age!

My vote: 7/10
