In my opinion part of the flop is, that it doesn't take into account the 
audience. In Shrek and other animation films the esthetic stylization is 
part of the filmic programme. A film which does try to double the 
realistic films, is judged by different standards. The 'mistakes' becomes 
visible. The sensibility is different. What is acceptable in a ' normal' 
animation film, becomes unbearable. The transformation from a computer 
game to a film has to encounter similar problems.
