So we meet Barbie here in a new design or at least..her looks changed abit..In some ways an improvement, in others (like the part she looks abit like she's crossed-eyed or something) there are some parts tobecome better..Though... we were prepared, already in Barbie thumbelinayou can see a change of graphics, and in Barbie and the threemusketeers they're nicely preparing you for Barbie's changes. Thegraphics and animations overall were outstanding. The colors are reallyvivid and underwater are used all different kinds of blue.
*There is a tiny possibility that one may find the followinginformation a spoiler, though personally I see it more as objectivenothing revealing about the storyline review*
Of Course Kelly Sheridan has provided her voice to Barbie, hereMerliah. The story is a bit clich?, but hey, its Barbie, it would beinteresting when the story is Not a clich?. Barbie movies always are insome ways inspired by other already existing stories, here you couldfind some Disneys Second Movie about The Little Mermaid parts.Nevertheless I really enjoyed watching the movie, the music is nicewith the catchy 'Queen of the Waves'song. Of course also this timeBarbie is accompanied with some cute talking friends, a pink dolphinand a little seal.
I loved how the mermaid world is worked out with the malls, themermaids and the high level of fashion you may not expect under waterwith something so in-practical as a long tail.
I thought the movie was really nice, also for older people...I'm17..the story contains nice parts, I watched with my littlegirl-next-door of 6 years old and she totally loved it.
At last I have to say that I liked the little pun in the title choosingfor Barbie in Mermaid tale instead of Story because one pronounces talein the same way as tail ..and let the whole thing be that Barbie goesMermaid here :)....
