Stirring, mythic hero's journey with rare Islamic hero and great voice cast. Too violent for little kiddies. But fine for older ones.

We don't get many animated adventures with Islamic heroes and historical Arabian settings, and while it may be too intense for younger kids, the film merits note for bringing these elements to Western family audiences.

Where Bilal exceeds in animation and direction, it lacks in entertaining, cohesive story, possibly owing to either the directors' desire to remain accurate to Muslim texts or the huge span of time they are trying to cover in a single movie.

Suffers from a confusing narrative and a style of computer animation that blurs the lines between the real and the animated in a way that evokes the discomfiting artifice of "The Polar Express."

The intentions are honorable, for sure, but the execution is awkward, not just visually but tonally.

"Bilal: A Brand New Breed of Hero" took forever to get here, and probably will be missed by the masses. It deserved a better fate.
