While Zambezia is typically protected by the Hurricanes, an elite group of dangerous birds led by Ajax (Jeff Goldblum) who patrol the skies surrounding this paradise, it seems Budzo might just be successful if all the birds donít decide to work together despite their differences to fend off this common and dangerous foe. Will Kai become a Hurricane and fulfill his destiny or will Budzo destroy this island refuge?
I actually found Adventures in Zambezia to be very predictable and fairly dull. While some of the animation was pretty, I think watching this DVD on a high def TV made it looks worse. Overall, the colors just weren't vivid, as you would expect them to be from the cover art. There were a few birds that really popped off the screen, but they were very few and far between. Mostly, things looked just okay and this was truly disappointing, as I was expecting an explosion of color from a haven for birds of all shapes, sizes and colors. The voice acting was fine; the movie just wasn't all that engaging. It had a nice African-inspired soundtrack and I can't say the film won't hold the attention of really young children, but it was pretty boring to me, even though I typically like animated films. Special features include a handful of featurettes on the making of the film, plus a sing-along animated music video. However, it's a rental at best.
