It was a nice story about two very different but close brothers who have to learn how to be themselves while also letting the other one shine. Anyone who has more than one kid would probably agree that they watch their own children struggle with this quite often, so I liked the message behind the movie.
The other positives:
the animation is great (but nothing we haven't seen), it's colorful, appropriate for young kids, and has a few laughable scenes sparringly scattered throughout.
The not-so positives:
It's extremely predictable. Yes, it's a kids movie. But does that mean it has to be a generic kids movie? My kids appreciate something original just as much as I do. Unfortunately, being formulaic means despite its best efforts, it gets pretty boring most of the time. I had to take away my 10 year old's itouch because she kept going on it and my 7 year old son was more entertained by playing with his 3D glasses and the seat. They don't demonstrate poor behavior during movie showings, we go all the time. So when they get this distracted, I know that they're getting just as bored as I am.
The movie TRIES to engage parents, even reaching as far as staging a good old fashioned Mommy-War in there...Read more ›
The reason I rate it 4 stars is that, as I stated before, it is slow-moving. I would have expected a little quicker plot, as the title and movie artwork would suggest. However, I feel that the moral of the story, combined with the humor, overcome the pace. It really is an enjoyable movie, though it might be better to go to a matinee or wait for it to be released to video.
The visuals are enthralling. Really cool technology, ships, aliens, monsters, etc. It keeps you watching.
The story is different, if a little predictable. But it's a kids' movie. Really well-done too. If your kids enjoyed Monsters Inc., Ice Age, or Madagascar, this movie will do the trick. It deserves a sequel.
BUY IT. Good movie.
The storyline is good and so are the affects. It's fun to watch with family or yourself. It's like the old Disney movies for the family and the very young children, The affects are more up dated of today's ways of movie making. I enjoyed it and maybe you might too when you see it. (JV).
