Review: Delgo

Somewhat less impressive than the Geico gecko

VIDEO: The trailer for Delgo

In a far-away animated land resembling Middle-earth by way of George Lucas's Clone Wars, two races clash over a common territory in a situation akin to the current conflict in the Middle East.

On one side stand the Lockni, who can animate stones; on the other are the Nohrin, who have wings and can fly. Both are reptile-like creatures somewhat less impressive than the Geico gecko. The politics and the distant planets, however, are mere Day-Glo backdrop for the film's simplistic moral, as the teenage Lockni hero of the title (voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr.) falls for a Nohrin princess (Jennifer Love Hewitt).

What follows has all the novelty of a video game you've played for the umpteenth time. Directors Marc F. Adler and Jason Mauer could have spared us the trouble and sent this one direct to Xbox.
