IGOR (2008) Graphic Review

About being a "nobody"
REVIEW
This simple story has a powerful message. So, the goal is to become a mad scientist! But in pursuit of that goal something good happens, due of the inner qualities of our hero. The late Reverend Dr. Dale Turner once said, “It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character.” Learn from your life journey, make the corrections you know you must and experience the wonderful human that emerges with you. Even if your current goal is to become a mad scientist
SYNOPSIS
In a land of mad scientists and diabolical inventions, what do you do when you're born with a hunch on your back? You become an Igor. A hilarious twist on the classic monster movie, "Igor" tells the story of one Igor who's sick of being a lowly lab assistant with a Yes Master's degree and dreams of becoming a scientist. When his cruel master kicks the bucket a week before the annual Evil Science Fair, Igor finally gets his chance. With the help of two of his experimental creations - Brain, a brain in a jar who's a little light on brains, and Scamper, a cynical bunny brought back from being road kill, Igor embarks on building the most evil invention of all time, a huge, ferocious monster. Unfortunately, instead of turning out evil, the monster turns out as Eva, a giant aspiring actress who wouldn't hurt a fly. Just when the load on his back can't get any heavier, Igor and his band of monstrous misfits uncover an evil plot that threatens their world. Now, they must fight to save it and prove that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Igor is directed by award-winning animation veteran Tony Leondis ("Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch") and written by Chris McKenna ("American Dad!"). Exodus Film Group CEO John D. Eraklis produces along with seasoned animation executive and Exodus president Max Howard who has collaborated on such animated blockbusters as Disney's "Lion King" and "Aladdin," and Warner Bros.'
