My reaction
Synopsis: Death and a doctor fight over an old lady
How I saw it: in the theater, a few days ago
Concept: Good.
Story: Indifferent. It’s not the kind of cartoon to have a strong story.
Characters: Good.
Dialog: n/a
Pacing: Indifferent. I zoned out a little at one point.
Cinematography: Good.
Special effects/design: Good.
Acting: Indifferent.
Music: Good.
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good). Silly fun on the level of a classic Looney Tunes cartoon. It never actually made me laugh, but it’s cute.
Objective Rating: 2.7/4 (Good).
