As a child, I remember watching the old Underdog cartoons every morning before school. When I first heard the word that Underdog was getting a live action movie I was pumped. I didn’t care if it was directed at children, I was still excited, after all, I am still a child at heart.
I sat down to watch the film, and much to my surprise I was very disappointed. I had high hopes for Underdog, and I was very sad that it was solely directed at children. In the recent years, we have gotten used to children’s shows being directed to a larger audience, like Shrek, or Cars. But Underdog is not the case. For a 10-year-old this movie would be great. But the parents and adults viewing this flick will just wish for it to be over.
Underdog does have its downsides, but I am happy to report a positive note about the movie. If you do happen to see the film you will be treated to see another midget actor. Who would have thought, a mad scientist little person! Mad scientists are great by themselves, but when you combine this with the antics of a little person the result is phenomenal. Underdog will definitely be in the runnings for the next Midget Movie Top Ten List.
