Brotherly Love (1936)

Brotherly LoveBrotherly Love Review

   Brotherly Love is a 1936 animated short from Popeye the Sailor series. It is one of the most forgettable Popeye shorts.

The plot here has potential, but the execution is weak. The film is basically one statement with no strong humor or action to be had whatsoever. I really found the use of the story to be very mediocre. And the film is quite boring with slow pacing and not enough interesting things in it.

But to be fair, it does have a sweet ending and some fine moments in it. The characters are somewhat well used and the short has a good message and quite good score and animation. It also starts well and of course ends well, but the whole middle section definitely needed improvement. It is one of the most forgettable and most disappointing Popeye shorts in a while.

Brotherly Love has its moments and a sweet ending, but this is still such a forgettable and even dull short which lacks strong action and humor.

 My Rating – 3.2
