Şero is a classical Turkish comics series, it's out-of-boundaries; smoking, drunk, playboy, outspoken cat that basically doesn't care about anything.It was a great feeling to watch this kind of high quality animation on Turkish movie theaters. Hopefully it will be make worldwide, and people might understand Turkish jokes.This is not for kids! It's for grown-ups, there is constant swearing, killing, alcohols, drugs, cigarettes etc. This is basically insane if you think of the current status of press freedom in Turkey. This will be a cult animation movie for Turkey, and hopefully the rest of the world.Watch this, you'll love it.
Everybody knows about the Garfield. The lazy, lasagna loving cat. He would be very sweet cat if you compare him with Kötü Kedi Şerafettin (bad cat şerafettin). He loves drinking rakı (a Turkish alcohol), barbecue, smoking, hitting on other cats on his reign with his famous sentence "do you wanna make up?". He is a caricature character created by Bülent Üstün in 1996.So now you know about this anti-hero cat lets talk about the movie itself. The script is made of adding up the older famous caricature stories and it can be easily said that şero (şerafettin) kept his origins. There are lots of laugh moments through out the movie and sometimes you just cant stop laughing. Bad language is used which was necessary because of the origin. The animation was amazing when you think about this movie is one of the first Turkish animation movie. It is world standard from a crew with not that much experience. Istanbul they created is so amazing, you feel like you are in it and only this reason is enough for watching this movie. Apart from the setting characters kept their origin successfully. You can feel the evilness from just a look of Şero.The only thing that i don't like about this movie is the endless story of the villain itself which repeats so many times that it gets boring in the end.If you are a fan of Şero or animation movies this is a must for you. Even you don't like this genre this movie can make you smile. Production of this movie was 10 years long and in my opinion all that work created a amazing movie.
Animals as we see in the Hollywood movies, presented human-like nowadays. Why isn't there any realistic "animation"? Animals ain't polite or save the world for a week. They mind their own business. Like the Bad Cat minds its own fish and booze. A definite thing about this movie is its diversity. There is an assumption that animals talk, this is animational constant. But their speech differs in this movie. It's fun to see cats swearing and yelling in the city. They're not bound to humans. Especially cats, as they domesticated spontaneously, because of mutual needs with men, shouldn't be presented as dependent toys. They'd always find a way through. This movie is about finding way for fun. Have fun.
-Without any doubt this is the best quality animation movie mad in Turkey !!! -Surprisingly good animation quality is destroyed by the story and and the unmatched annoying voices !!! -The story is rushed and has no point !!! -What happens in one scene does not match or continue in the second scene !!! -It seems like they just put bunch of sketch together to make a movie !!! -The choice of the voice actors is absolutely wrong (none of the voices match the characters, specially Serafettin's voice is extremely annoying) !!! -However as I mentioned the animation quality is absolutely wonderful (for made in Turkey) !!! -It had a huge potential and it was just wasted !!! -Watch it for your own entertainment you might find it better, but for me it was a huge disappointment !!!
Before watching, you must google who is The Bad cat (Serafettin). If you know him and the story you'll love film twice. The Language,Alcohol, Smoking... This makes the Sero "Bad Cat". The details of animation wins 99 of 100! Cihangir, Beyoglu, Taksim, narrow streets whole perfect. Thank you again for your exertion guys, nice job, well done. A must see animationHollywood wait for Turkish animators, a new era will be there.The details of mice, seagull, grocery man, Father as good as like original book.
Well i don't know if the problem is the English dubbing or the the script itself but i haven't heard that much F words since "The Wolf of Wall Street " !!! i mean come on ... it's like you can't make a funny Anime without adding all of that overused and unnecessary filth !!I mean the story is meh,, okay maybe not bad , for a developing industry in Turkey but man that was one hell of screenplay !! it was just disconnected and all over the place .. a cat getting shot .. a cat electrocuted to death !! this would have been a really good movie if story was a bit organized .. Anime wise ,, it was really good .. but other than that, i was just waiting for the whole thing to end so i can watch another movie to make forget about it all.
Honest review for people censoring for children viewingThere are a lot of filth movies with high ratings, its a sad reflection on human natureHave never come across one labeled as a children's movie though, thats a first
(I watched the English-voiced version.)Strange humour. It took me half the movie to start smiling.Excellent technique though, great scenery, animation and sound.Main flaws are pacing and continuity issues. The film would benefit from better writing or editing.
I was ready to toss this into the delete pile in 5 min after I started. That's all I was going to give It. I thought It was surely going to be another pile of crap 3D animation cash grab. I'm still watching and almost done. Profanity, death, gore, sexual innuendo, alcoholism, theft, drunken driving... the list goes on and on. It's actually amusing at times. I'm surprised frankly. This Is no stinking kids movie. It's adult oriented through and through. Well animated as well.
First off, I never expected a Turkish animation could be this good -- how I was wrong. The animation is so great I can't help not to write a review; something I don't usually bother doing. The level of details put into every scene is stunning, the character motions, the physics of things, the visual effects and everything that a good 3d movie should tend to was done close to perfection. As far as the animation goes, this movie is a real winner. But now here comes the unfortunate part: the story. From the beginning, I felt nothing is so engaging about the story. I was honestly bored and could have left the movie after 15 minutes if it wasn't for the animation. I watched the English-dubbed version, so maybe something is lost in translation. There isn't much to enjoy from the dialogs througout the duration, some were crude, some were cheesy and none is entertaining. But again, this is the dubbed version I was watching. if only I could understand the movie in its original language, probably I could have enjoyed it more. However kudos to the team behind this animaton work.
If you have watched, Fritz the Cat 1972 and liked it, you'll more likely also watch and enjoy this one. Bad language is flowing like a water-turd fall and toilet humor is rife. There is an overall moral though, and there is also a sense of order among all the chaos. I felt the poor zapped fella was hard done by myself, he didn't deserve all that beating. That aside, this is an enjoyable watch but not with granny or the kids. Not the crispest animation if you are picky, but you soon get absorbed into the plot and those failings soon get brushed aside and are more than made up for by the unique animated methods and rapid fire scenes and constant twisting mini plots and scene to scene shoots. The perspective the animators used i don't think can ever be emulated with as much success as was achieved here, it was quite something to feel my own chair move when i was trying to follow the movements on screen.
First of all.. we are talking about an animation which is also observable by children. Second thing is this animation psychologically brings bad behavior to young audience, maybe. There is a lot slang and perversion. I see our people getting individualization when they see a Turkish made something. They are giving top score for this movie without thinking. We should compare with other animation like Hollywood/Disney qualified movies as well. Because for age of the audience is also important. Usually in Hollywood/Disney's made, they never go to go out except few several basic words in those animation or movies. You cannot hear slang and perversion so much. But this movie..They should add age restriction to watch this movie.
