DailyView: Day 79, Movie 135
I was searching for a shorter movie to fit into the time before Smackdown and the Movie Trivia Schmoedown, both of which I was looking forward to seeing. I was having a craving for an animated movie too, so I searched through Google for an option. As time ticked away I was worried I would not find one that would fit into the available time. Then, I found one that had one of the greatest of all time in the title.
Back in the 2000s, EYG Hall of Famer Stan Lee created a group of other characters under the POW banner. None of the characters really took off, but I found an animated feature called Stan Lee Presents: Mosaic. I had no idea what it was so I gave it a chance.
Maggie Nelson (Anna Paquin) was a student at a High School of Dramatic Arts and the daughter of an Interpol agent. Her father was investigating a break in at a museum that left a guard dead who appeared to be anything but human.
Meanwhile, an accident with lightning and a chameleon gave Maggie some bizarre abilities that she found useful when she wound up deep inside the case her father was working.
The story was pretty simple. The animation was Saturday morning cartoon level. The origin was unoriginal. However, Oscar winner Anna Paquin voiced Maggie, which gives the movie credibility. The powers were cool.
This would never be a success in the theater, but for what I was looking for… a light movie that was quick and entertaining. And this was that. I liked this. It was not a great movie, but it was passable.
