A mixture of pirate history, fantasy, with doses of Moby Dick but the Japanese kaiju, the film takes us to a world where a kingdom has declared war on sea monsters! The heroes of the time are the captains-hunters of monsters, who with their fearless crews make sure to fill the books of the kingdom with stories of courage and bravery. One such book is also read by the young, orphaned Maisie, and she decides to escape from the orphanage and sneak aboard the legendary ship of Captain Crow and his right-hand man, the intrepid Jacob Holland. Captain Crow has been furiously hunting the red beast for years. But are sea monsters what they seem? Little Maisie will make the journey and the discovery that will turn the kingdom upside down.
An excellent fairy tale, with beautiful images, very good animation, flawless voice performances, but also with a script that makes sure that it is easy for young children, but is much deeper than what it seems. Somewhere it will certainly remind of Moana and not by chance, as the director, Chris Williams, was on the staff of directors and screenwriters of the Disney film. Anyway, his work here is also worth talking about.
The Sea Monster has action scenes that delight in their orchestration and precision. There are moments when you feel like you’re watching a kaiju movie, with Williams emphasizing the bulk of the monsters. But it also has interesting characters, such as Captain Crow, as well as cleverly written dialogues. It’s as humorous as it needs to be, has a little girl for kids to identify with, and a little critter they’ll like. I see no reason not to see the movie if you have Netflix, let alone it would be a great movie theater choice. Watch more Afdah free movies online for streaming within a click.
