KIKORIKI: LEGEND OF THE GOLDEN DRAGON REVIEWED
“Kikoriki: Legend of the Golden Dragon” is a Russian animated romp that feels like it could’ve been the pilot for an animated series. What follows is an introductory romp through a world of rabbit looking things and other colorful round entities. What starts as a video game session begins an adventure inspiring all viewers to go outside. Naturally, your kids will miss the subtext.
From there, it’s a pop culture reference about every thirty seconds until the film ends. While I enjoyed the film and my kid enjoyed the film…I don’t know who the film was made to entertain. I’m noticing a trend in recent kid entertainment with films like this. So many kid films feel like an exercise in existing without a point. While that’s great and all, it could’ve played shorter.

The Plot Thus Far
The lovably simple residents of peaceful Kikoriki Island are thrown kicking and screaming into big adventure when their resident scientist invents an amazing device (a helmet called “the Improverizor”) which takes personality traits from one person and swaps them with someone else’s!
But when spineless young Wally tries to use the untested device to cure his cowardice, he ends up even more spineless: by getting accidentally body-switched with a squirmy little caterpillar. Now he’s got more to fear than he ever dreamed, and so do his fellow villagers, as they’re dragged into a madcap adventure packed with plane crashes, mistaken identities, erupting volcanoes and angry natives on the warpath. Boy, do the Kikoriki rew wish they could switch places now: with anyone!
