He is not a sword, and he is not a boomerang. He is Stick Man...
26 May 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I ended up watching "Stick Man" because my son wanted to watch it. I had no idea what it was about or who was in it.

"Stick Man" turned out to actually be an entertaining animated movie, despite it being fairly short.

There is an overwhelming sensation of this story being based on a children's rhyme or perhaps even a book, although I am not sure, nor familiar with such a rhyme or book. It is because of the narrative presentation that the animated movie does take on that quality.

As for the voice acting, well then there was surprisingly little dialogue in this animated movie. And I had no idea that it was Martin Freeman who actually voiced Stick Man before I came to review the animated movie.

The animation in "Stick Man" was good and to the point. Although it was at times fairly simplistic, it served its purpose well and it was straight to the point.

"Stick Man" hardly is a classic, but it is still fun enough to watch once or twice.
