Fleets of Stren’th (1942)

Fleets of Stren'th ReviewFleets of Stren’th Review

 Fleets of Stren’th is a 1942 animated short from Popeye the Sailor series. It is another typical war entry.

This one is, unlike, ‘Blunder Below‘, quite forgettable and even more bland than usual. It does get its good moments such as the opening of the spinach which is once more pretty memorable with the bullets from the plane now doing the trick and the film is well scored and animated, but it is just too action oriented to be enjoyed more.

Literally all of the scenes here are action scenes with us basically watching a cartoon war picture with Popeye. Him turning into a plane was fun, but everything else fell short of being either exciting or memorable and it was just another excuse to make this all about WWII which is so typical of the films of its day.

Fleets of Stren’th has its memorable moments near the end, but other scenes are all either forgettable or uninspired in action and humor.

 My Rating – 3.7
