BABE: PIG IN THE CITY (HDNET-2012) cover image Click to play video trailer
This movie is a wonderful sequel to the 1995 film "Babe." Most of the movie takes place in Metropolis. This city looks like a perfect dream town. It has the golden bridge, the word trade center, Eiffel tower and the River City like Italy. It's so epic to see all the famous places in one City. Babe the "Best Sheep Herd Pig" seems to get in trouble everywhere. It is amazing to see how well Babe was able to express his feelings. The best reaction of the movie is when Babe sitting there with Farmer Hoggett after the first accident in the well. All the animals in this movie are great actors. They all have their own facial expressions that can tell you how they feel. They can do tricks that are so amazing to watch. The wardrobes on the animals are so lively and fun. The special effect on the dog with the wheels as his back legs is so awesome. The music is just out of this planet.There are always lessons learned in every accident that Babe was in. Babe learns more with each accident and get better at helping his owner. The only sad part is when the bull terrier almost dies. He was just hanging by his leg with his head in the water. All the animals are just staring at him and do nothing to help. It too sad to see that. I rank this movie 4 out of 5 stars, the voice over, customes and and music are amazing. I give this age ranged 5-10 Reviewed by Cheyenne Nguyen, age 8.
Babe is a marvelous family classic! The movie tells the story of an innocent piglet who befriends animals on a farm and becomes especially close to a sheepdog named Fly. With Fly's help and all of the animals on the farm, Babe enters a sheepherding competition. Will Babe win the competition even though he is just a piglet? Watch the movie for yourself! I liked this movie a lot because all of the animals are great actors and have personalities similar to people. At times I wondered if the animals were just extremely well-trained or if the use of animatronics was this effective. The dubbing was also wonderful. The format the movie uses to tell the story is like a children's storybook, with each chapter telling an interesting story with a moral. The movie is also well directed. I especially liked the scene where Babe is trying to steal the farmer's alarm clock because director Chris Noonan used suspenseful music to make the audience more anticipated. I recommend this movie to children ages 4 and up because very little kids will still be able to enjoy it. The movie delivers a positive message that you can do anything despite your appearance. Babe is one of the many classics brought to your home by HDnet movies on KidScene, a morning and Friday night programming block specifically for kids and families.
