Seldom do animations of this quality and creative imagination also elicit thoughtful and emotional responses from the viewer. But such appears to be the case as many other reviewers have expressed similar thoughts. So! Praise to the director, writers and animation crew for an exceptionally crafted story.

This movie was great. It was the first 3-D movie I ever went and saw. Due to the horrible job done promoting this movie not many people even saw it. Which is fine because my friend and I had the whole theater to ourselves. A private screening at a public movie theater of one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Most people won't like this movie because it makes us humans out to be the bad guys. The movie was great. Animation for being made with the money it was made for is excellent. The message great. If you are one of the ones who didn't get to see this in theaters, which I'm sure most of you reading this are aside from a few scary moments which may disturb younger viewers this movie truly is a diamond in the rough.

This Blu has been screening nicely in the store as sadly no one got to see this with that joke of a theatrical release slate.

Plenty to dissect here regarding both the subtle and overlaying future of humanity themes, but in the end the positive outcomes shine through as does the awesome animation, both preserved beautifully on the Blu. This recent trend of 5.1 Uncompressed PCM on Blu is a nice change, and it bodes well for an action filled finale like this. The clarity, colors and style of animation look great here, and I bookmarked the last 17 minute battle scene for customers and that alone has sold itself. The supplements are a bit mismanaged and include:
* 4:45 minute making-of. Way too short for what this film took to make, and most of the other extras should have been spliced into this selection.
* 4 deleted scenes totaling 7 minutes. For what this film was they all should have been left in their respective sequences.
* 25 second quip on a storyboard to final rendering analysis on one scene.
* 2:13 minute Animatics picture in picture clip. Shows the animation changes between production levels of the escape sequence.
* 20 slides containing text and and drawing notes of initial production design.
* Pulling the Strings, 1:26 minute low grade animation clip of the director stating his reasons for making this and other films and what he hopes to accomplish.
* Crew commentary, catered to the animation followers.

The menu is eye catching and plays with some decent music. The navigation is too extensive for younger viewers and could have been made much simpler regarding the supplements (combine everything next time). This gets a 5 rating for Lionsgate on a solid picture and sound product. A PG rating with maybe a few scary moments for really young viewers, but presentable to everyone, I think. Have not had any kids run screaming to mom yet while it plays here. Hope you enjoy.

This movie was surprisingly good. The story was aimed at a more adult audience than the animation would suggest. Earth is destroyed and the last of humanity finds a suitable planet for teraforming. The problem is that it is already inhabited. You feel the plight of the aliens as well as the humans. It dares you to ask the question "What is right?" The real question; is there a real answer to that question? Animation will please the kids and the parents can enjoy the story. I would have given it 4 stars, but I deducted one, because of the poor animation...

Battle for Terra is a dynamic tale of desperation & misunderstanding. It is hard to believe that earthlings could be this irresponsible, & could be so ruthless, that they would be wiling to commit genocide, just to have a new home.

Yet, even after all these centuries, humanity has failed to learn from their mistakes.

The major characters in this movie, are the Terrian Mala, & the human pilot, Lt. James Stanton.

The Terrians are a superstitious people who initially think that when the ARK, (the humans spaceship), first arrives above their planet-they believe it to be gods. But the leaders of the Terrians know better, because unknown to many of their people, they have been secretly preparing for the possible invasion of their planet, although being a peaceful people-knew that possibility might happen at some time.

Their unwillingness to trust any human, is echoed in the fact that the same thing could be said about humans attitudes to trust an alien species-a viewpoint that leads to a full-scale invasion of Terra, something the Terrians have been preparing for, for years.

Yet, there is a great sadness in this movie, in the fact that the humans are desperate, because the ARK is literally disintegrating around them, & there is almost no time left for them TO find a new home.

While the leadership aboard the ARK, does not want want war, the military leader aboard the ARK, is not willing to wait. He overthrows the ARK'S leaders, & launches the full scale invasion of Terra.

It is only through the friendship of the Terrian Mala & the human, James Stanton, the complete genocide of the Terrians is avoided, though not without without a terrible price being paid.
