Just over a week ago we were kindly sent a copy of Justin and the Knights of Valour to review. The boys couldn’t wait to settle down and watch it and with the rain we’ve been experiencing lately it was nice to have a film to watch together. So we drew the curtains and curled up on the sofa to watch the film.
So what’s it about? well:
‘Justin lives in a Kingdom without Knights! he dreams of following his Grandfather’s footsteps and becoming one of the famed Knights of Valour but his father wants him to settle down to a life without adventure. Inspired by his Grandfather Justin decides to follow his heart and embark upon a daring quest to become a Knight by himself.’ ( taken from the press release)
Right from the start you are drawn into Justin’s world and find yourself willing him to succeed at becoming a Knight. The boys were hooked and even Erin seemed to enjoy the film. It certainly held their attention which can be a difficult thing when you have children of varying ages. The bright animation is full of adventure and fun with lovable characters joining Justin on his quest.
Starring the voices of Antonio Banderas, David Walliams, Charles Dance, Julie Walters, Rupert Everett and Olivia Williams to name but a few this action packed film is going to be a big hit with the whole family.
The boys and I thoroughly enjoyed this offering from Entertainment One and would recommend it to all. Rowan was very taken with the quest to become a Knight and has since dressed up at every opportunity as a Knight running around hunting his brothers! So I think it’s safe to say it’s a hit with him! For me it was nice to be able to sit through a film and enjoy it with the children and actually watch it start to finish. It was a great film which left me with a feel good feeling. This is one for all the family to enjoy.
Justin and the Knights of Valour is available to buy from Monday February 3rd 2014, from all good retailers including Amazon and retails at around £9.99 for the DVD and £12 for the Blu-ray.
