Robbie The Reindeer In Hooves Of Fire
/ Legend of the Lost Tribe with Ardal O'Hanlon
and Jane Horrocks
Delightful 3D model animation for Christmas with
Robbie competing in the annual Reindeer Games in order to prove himself
and win the girl. Features 'Come Fly With Me' sung by Robbie Williams.
Incidental music composed by Mark Knopfler and performed by Mark Knopfler
and Guy Fletcher.
Robbie the Reindeer is as short as many of the
made-for-TV classics that have preceded it. However, so much action, zippy
dialogue and witty visual puns have been packed into its 29-minute running
time that you'd swear it was longer. The content of the film, like many
new animations and cartoons, is geared slightly in favour of older
audiences, because of its sexual innuendos and adult comedy, but the kids
will love the slapstick comedy and loveable characters. Robbie's father is
another stop-motion favourite, Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and
pop is keen to see his loveable - but lazy - son follow in his famous hoof
prints. The adult theme continues in the shape of the storyline, which was
actually inspired more by Rocky than by Rudolph. As in Rocky, there's a supportive female
(Donner) and a crusty trainer
(Old Jingle). Together they help Robbie get in shape for the Reindeer
Games, where he'll have the chance to show Santa whether he has the right
stuff or not. Fans of Aardman Animations should appreciate the detailed
animation and clever humour. The cream of Britain's comic crop provides
the voices, including Jane Horrocks as Donner. Robbie Williams narrates
the story, and Mark Knopfler provides the music.
