Dove Review

This animated movie does a super job in promoting being true to one’s self and pursuing one’s dreams. Radisha, a rabbit character, loves the martial arts. She wants to be like her father, Tavish, who speaks with a Scottish accent and is an expert martial artist. But when her friend, Sylvia, comes to visit, it is obvious to Radisha that her father wants her to be more like Sylvia, who is gentle and “lady-like.”

Radisha comes to the rescue of another character as well as Sylvia when some bullies picks on them. She uses what skills she has to stop them, and it works! Her dad is upset when he hears about the situation and is harsh with her. Later on, when a character tells him he should be proud because she helped save his life, Tavish swallows his pride and apologizes to his daughter. Not only that, but he says she can pursue her dream of learning the martial arts!

There are other bullies to contend with and the story makes it clear–there is power in unity and in working with others. In one touching scene, Free Range (the chicken) is placed in danger with his mother, and his memories of her kindness to him when she was raising him up from a young “chick” empowers him to make a bold effort to save them both. Does it work? You will have to see the movie to find out.

There are a few martial arts fights and a few examples of name-calling, but the virtues of this remarkable animated movie focus on forgiveness, love, and chasing dreams. We are pleased to present it our Dove seal for All Ages.

The Dove Take:

This wonderful movie is an action-packed film which uses themes of love, forgiveness, and pursuing dreams in its plot and is a delight to watch!
