Big Man from the North is a 1931 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is a weaker entry.
We follow Bosko as he searches for and then fights the wanted villain. This plot is archetypal and the execution itself isn’t that refreshing actually to lift the material to greater heights. I guess that the film is solid and has its moments, but it is never particularly entertaining and it is also a bit too long.
I loved the setting and the animation is pretty good along with the action which is solid. However, even though it is well made, Bosko himself is never as memorable as he was in the previous cartoons and is rather forgettable. I liked that he had to fight someone for a change and the fight was fine, but the leading up to that fight was way too prolonged and though visually solid, it wasn’t engaging to watch.
Big Man from the North is definitely well made, but typical in plot and overlong and not that entertaining as a whole.
My Rating – 3.4
