Cerebus the Aardvark

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Somewhere and somewhen in fantasy land: Cerebus the Aardvark (voiced by John Di Crosta) roams the countryside to fulfill his (probably questionable) destiny - but when twins G'ar and T'ar (both voiced by Yuell Newsome) take him for a mercenry and hire him to help them steal the flamed jewel from wizard Maki (Stephen Mendel) for a pouch of gold, he's more than happy to give up on his destiny, even sell the helmet causally linked to it for a fitting disguise to do the job. Now Cerebus's destiny is not very pleased about this and tries to get him back on track by throwing all kinds of eccentrics and weird adventures in his way, but Cerebus trods on. However, the twins might not have told him everything about the wizard's powers, powers even his magic sword might be not match to ...

 

First published back in 1977, the (indie) comicbooks about Cerebus the Aardvark have gathered a quite sizeable following over the years - but this CGI-animated feature is the characters first on-screen appearance. And with that in mind, it's all the more surprising that this is a no-budget yet authorized adaptation - but it's not so you see that it's no-budget for real, as while the animation might not always be up to Pixar standards, much care has been put in character designs, richness of backgrounds and looks in general, and the animation is very fluid. But what makes this movie even more is the writing that's character-based and veils its somewhat standard heroic fantasy story in enough sarcasm to make it feel as fresh. Really the only complaint here is that the movie tries to squeeze way too much into its 70 minutes as many of the film's episodes and subplots would have deserved their own feature or at least extended short - they're just that good in temselves - and thus the movie sometimes seems to lose focus. But that's really a complaint at a very high level, as in all The Absurd, Surreal, Metaphysical and Fractured Destiny of Cerebus the Aardvark is actually really good and also pretty funny genre entertainment.
