Dove Review

The character of Inkas, a dove, is an underdog that wants to help protect the vegetarian dinosaurs of his district but who faces an enemy in Drake, a meat eater. He attempts to fool Inkas into leading him to Inkas’ dinosaur friends so he can devour their meet.

Inkas is the official weather bird for the area and takes his job seriously. The Blue Volcano is another challenge for Inkas as it could blow at any time. The screenplay keeps the story intact but can enlarge on visual images for the screen. For example, the lush green valley which is described can be seen instead of imagined. Another example takes place on as the drool of a meat eater could be seen clearly in a nice close-up shot. Spencer tells a story with a rhyme and it will be interesting to see the character in the “flesh” so to speak, speaking the lines.

This is a movie I would enjoy seeing. The story of Inkas, the underdog dove, sounds interesting. And the screenplay under a good director would offer the opportunity to bring the well-written book to life. We award this screenplay five Doves, our best rating. We encourage the author and filmmakers to keep the wholesome aspects of the book (lack of strong language for example) intact for the movie.
