(out of 5)

Plodding children’s movie has  and  reunite after being childhood friends many years before, reopening a dangerous exotic board game that features wild animals. The game comes to life and pretty soon the small town they live in is being stampeded by wild elephants, rhinoceroses and whatever else you could imagine being let loose if the zoos of the world suddenly opened their cages. Trouble is, there’s very little humour in the film and even less character, so you’re left with a boring and loud adventure with so-so visual effects that will mainly entertain the very young.
