Mosaic is a made for video cartoon, similar to current trend in animated adventures akin to Marvel's Ultimate Avengers, Iron Man or (Upcoming) Dr Strange...However that is where the similar style ends.
Stan Lee, The creator of Spiderman, Dardevil, The Fantastic Four and Stripperella (well 3 outta 4 aint bad), did the story of this female high schooler from the high school of the performinbg arts, who gains super powers from a mystical rune stone. It sound like a revamped female Spiderman without a radioactive spider...and it dont work.
When it plays out, the chatacter of Maggie acts like a teen Superhero Barbie doll
The first problem is Scott Lobdell, who can write an X-Men comic book so well, seems lost in the script of this animated adventure. He give Lee's Script an edge, but it seems like a recycled Spidey to me.
The second problem is Oscar Winner Anna Paquin (Rogue from the X-Men movies) and Kirby Morrow (From Stargate: Atlantis) try to act the linesm rather than playing it like a cartoon.They sound so wooden in their vocal presentation. Paquin, who was in xmen, should know superhero text is more over the top..she plays it like Shakespeare
the good news, This animated cartoon is better than most cartoon stuff out today. The visual efforts are over done, but it works to convex its action
For 72 minutes, it draws so slow it feels like 2 hours> Foe a made for video animated adventure, i have seen better
