It’s as empty as the space it’s set in
Spark (Jace Norman) follows the titular character as he lives on an abandoned shard of his former planet. Helped by his protectors Chunk (Rob deLeeuw) and Vix (Jessica Biel), he tries everything to escape his lonely life. Yet, when he does, he finds himself stuck in a situation that could blow up another world!
It’s amazing how many items of popular culture are influenced by Star Wars. However, Spark manages to be the worst clone of the franchise of all time. The dialogue is dreadful, no hint of ‘show not tell’ and this is worsened by the non existent plot. The animation quality is akin to that of 15 years ago, and there’s far less life in this than a film like Monsters Inc.
It’s thoroughly disjointed, it has no impact whatsoever, and it sums up everything that can go wrong in a children’s animation. There is nothing for the adults and nothing for the kids, it’s as empty as the space it’s set in.
We are supposedly in the golden age of animation, but Spark has really tried hard to make itself stand out from the crowd. In the wrong direction.
