It was a cinematic delight watching this movie. Tad: The Lost Explorer is full of adventure. This treasure hunt movie keeps you entertained with its great exploration journey packed with a good script, decent animation, love story, action, and emotion. Animal side characters make film even more enjoyable with their humor and funny dialogues.
The movie follows Tad, a construction worker, who aspires to become a great explorer. His dream comes true when he fortuitously finds himself on a treasure hunt- in search of a lost city with the promise of making one immortal. His team consists of his dog, a professor's daughter and her silent bird, and a hustler. They encountered evil forces of treasure-hunter taking on several dangerous risks. It takes viewers on a non-stop thrilling ride treating us with idyllic resplendent landscapes. Tad is an inspirational character who shows an indomitable spirit to pursue his dream. The movie tries to explore the question of immortality. No one would deny the opportunity to become immortal but would you still choose to be the one if it is the form of immortality depicted in the movie? The quest for immortality may not always have a blissful ending even when it is fulfilled. Be careful of what you wish for!
This is a fast-paced movie with a running time of 92 minutes which is not a weak point but I wish for more depth in story and character development. All in all, Tad: The Lost Explorer is a family entertainer suited for both kids and adults with a deep hidden message. It is rightfully called Indiana Jones of the animated world.
Tad is a celebrity archeologist and adventurer just like his hero Max Mordon... in his dreams! In reality, Tad is a Chicago construction worker.

Time for Tad to step up.
