What the hell did I just witness?
God, I'm so tired of sprite movies where stuff happens to characters that would never happen in the series. And this one really takes the cake. First of all, you're obviously trying for the same dramatic story that Rise Of The Mushroom Kingdom used, and that wasn't that great of a movie to begin with. Main character gets killed, sidekicks seek revenge, and half of them get killed in the process. How original! You also have no sense of timing. Almost every scene was dragged out far too long, and to be honest, it made the entire movie very boring and a pain to watch. There was barely even a full plot here. It started out decent as far as a storyline goes, but then people just start fighting and dying, and there wasn't even an ending. Nothing was resolved. Even if there's supposed to be a sequel to something, there's still some kind of resolution or implication to what happens next. This lacked almost every basic structure of storytelling, not to mention the cloaked person had no reason to be there, except to mindlessly kill two of the characters. He had no other major effect and it was easy to tell you had no idea what to do with him. And if I may make another point, the vocal work was utterly terrible. Horrendous, if I may. All of it was whispered. It was quite apparent you were trying to do it without your parents hearing you or something to that effect. If it weren't for the theatrical music, I'd give sound a flat zero. Overall, this movie had absolutely nothing right with it. Not a single thing. It doesn't fit the Donkey Kong universe at all, and it's just such a played out story. The only reason some people like this is because they're fans of the characters and are too afraid to pull their heads out of their asses and look at the actual production values.
I gotta stop watching sprite movies, they just make me sick.
