Does the "sizzle reel" for Sean Connery's Sir Billi actually sizzle? (Answer: No.)

06.25.2010

SIR BILLI, Sean Connery's first film since THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN and the first animated feature from Scotland, isn't slated for release till sometime next year. So perhaps the animation we're seeing in the "sizzle reel" below is not actually terrible and like something out of a 10-year old video game, but rather simply incomplete? But then, why release this video for all to see without some sort of disclaimer? I don't really get it, but I am laughing (unintentionally).

A sizzle reel from Sir Sean Connery's forthcoming animated feature film 'Sir Billi', produced in Scotland from independent animation studio Glasgow Animation and Billi Productions - Scotland's first full length animation feature film - due in cinemas next year! Stars, the iconic Connery, Alan Cumming, Miriam Margolyes, Ruby Wax, Ford Kiernan, Greg Hempill, Alex Norton, Barbara Rafferty, Larry Sullivan, Amy Sacco, Chris Jai Alex and John Amabile. They have amazingly recruited the legend Dame Shirley Bassey to sing the opening title track, reunited the original and best Bond and Bassey since their Goldfinger days! Sir Billi - the kind of Grandpa we all wish we had....go get 'em Scotland!

Extra Tidbit: Why is that goat wearing a GAME OF DEATH track suit? God, I think I wanna watch this high.

WTF?

Dude says fnck the Indy franchise, but he'll come back for an awfully animated film about a skateboarding octogenarian with a fncking goat as a best friend?

Is he really THAT loyal to his fellow countrymen? I don't think so. Either he owes someone BIG TIME, or he's just lost his mind entirely.

Is it April 1st?

Please, please tell me this is a joke. I mean, it just looks (and I'm not just referring to the animation) SO BAD! "Will keep you on edge of your seat"? Yeah, only because I'll be dying to leave ASAP.

Yikes

I was born and raised in Scotland, and I have to say that looks just dreadful. Its not just the clunky animation, it just seems to be a dopey idea - like a Saturday morning cartoon or something. C'mon guys. Granted, there are a ton of well known Scottish personalities in the cast list, but yikes.

thats just sad

I think I can honestly say that I've seen better animation from an Nintendo 64 game. I know that's stretching a bit but not by much. Even his voice-over work is something to question if his heart actually was in this or if retirement has gotten the better of him.

Keeps getting better....

"Witness the powerful force of the small international community...." LMAO!

Other funny bits:

1) When the cop at the phone booth is talking, you can see a sign behind him that says "Ben Hur - 10 Miles".

2) "...the odds and a villainous policeman are against them." Lol!

3) "What turbinesh?"

I love how all of them are arguing and talking about saving the beaver in time yet they're all just standing there.

Screw it...I've got to see this movie!

TEH LULZ

aw shit - I love things that craptastic. I'm guessing he had to make good on a decades old promise, or satisfy a blackmailer's demands. I like that he's doing something for the motherland - but giving it a black eye and a sore ass probably wasn't the most charitable contribution. Didn't he see Streetfighter - this is the kind of bottom-shelf low-water mark anal sludge that actors have a habit of dying after making, so their IMDB resume reads like a joke with a cruel punchline. He'll have a

Pissed myself laughing...

When Sean's character pulls the hand brake and it turns out he's in his Aston Martin DB5 from "Goldfinger", I almost fell off my chair. And even Shirley Bassey is singing the theme.....one ticket please!

This is gonna be the guilty pleasure of 2010.

Even though the animation from the first "Toy Story" trumps this movie.

Jesus...

This looks like a combination of bad animation from movies like Happy (N)ever After & those (even more?) terrible Pixar rip offs (Ratatoing etc.)

I dunno... DreamWorks isn't that awful. I thought The Prince of Egypt, Road to Eldorado, and Shrek were quite good. Don't think I've seen anything else of theirs or I'm just not familiar with what else they've done.

This is a joke, right? There's no way that shitty animation, and crappy voiceover (is it the same guy from the "Tiptoes" trailer) can be for a real product, can it?

Holy hell, the animation on that looks about 15 years old! The mouth movement/dialogue looks like a dubbed 70's kung fu movie.
Connery, WTF are you thinking?
You retire and come back with this!!!!

This is quite possibly the gayest shit I've ever seen. And I say that, only not having seen the Twilight films.

I was always waiting t say Welcome Back Mr. Connery...... But Ill act like this doesnt exsist looks terrible. The Animation looks like its done by kids. Connery should stay retired unless he comes to do something worth watching like everything he has been in before.
