A half-striped ze­bra searches for wa­ter and re­demp­tion in a shame­less mid-budget vari­a­tion on The Lion King, Mada­gas­car and Dis­ney’s The Jun­gle Book. This South African an­i­ma­tion is just too good. To clar­ify, we mean “too” en­tirely lit­er­ally and “just” in the sense of “by a nar­row mar­gin”. That is to say, if it were a lit­tle worse, then it might of­fer some mind­less fun. It were some­what bet­ter, then, well, it would be some­what bet­ter. G cert, gen re­lease, 85 min
