Product Description

When the peaceful inhabitants of the beautiful planet Terra come under attack from the last surviving members of humanity adrift in an aging spaceship, the stage is set for an all-out war between the two species for control of the planet. But will an unlikely friendship between a rebellious young Terrian (voiced by Evan Rachel Wood) and an injured human pilot (Luke Wilson) somehow convince their leaders that war is not the answer?

Amazon.com

Earthlings are the bad guys in this animated saga, which was released to theaters in 3-D. And the good guys? That would be the Terrans, big-eyed little tadpole creatures whose planet is about to be invaded by human beings in search of a permanent living space--and hey, if the atmosphere of this alien planet isn't exactly fit for humans, the visitors can always blast the place with an oxygen-producing terra-forming machine that will make it habitable. The only collateral damage is that the natives will be killed off. Huh? As you can see, the allegorical undertones here are, well, overtones, all of which might seem less heavy-handed if the story were absorbing and the characters were compelling, but director Aristomenis Tsirbas concentrates on the environmental message and the non-show-offy 3D design. We mostly follow a Terran (voiced by Evan Rachel Wood) who comes upon a lone astronaut (Luke Wilson), much to the confusion of her Terran quasi-boyfriend (Justin Long). In the absence of a lot of plot excitement, kids might take some enjoyment in the nerdy declarations of a cute robot (David Cross). Can the brutal intentions of the invading general (Brian Cox) be stopped in time to save Terra? Will you still be awake to learn the answer? --Robert Horton

This is about reverse alien invasion. Instead of aliens invading human's planet Earth, this movie is about humans invading an alien's home planet. Very interesting concept. We invade others and how the two sides perceive each other. No different than any war we face since the beginning of time; we somehow are told the enemy is always bad, all of them, so kill them because we don't want you to know anything about your enemy that can cause you to sympathize with them. Well in this movie, one person accidentally learns about the culture of his enemy and sympathizes with the enemy. How does he face his own kind, and is he a bad person for not wanting to destroy his enemy? Must he choose between them and us? Must he kill because he is told to do so? This animation is quite a powerful statement about human nature: who we are as a people and is it right for us to destroy and kill others for the sake of one's own survival or the future of humanity?

The CGI detail of Terra and its inhabitants is first rate. The appearance of humans is like old Disney animation, pathetic. In this movie humans are the genocidal villains attempting to perpetuate the species by tera-forming the planet for human habitation. One of the outtakes explains that some humans disagree with this approach. Hollywood political agenda to discredit the military?

No explanation is given for the advanced military hardware of the Terrains. What happened in the past? The lead human has been won over to the peacefulness of the locals yet can’t overcome blindly following orders. In the end he is a hero but what took so long?

I liked the movie and I was irritated by it.

I loved this movie. I got choked up at some bits, but overall, it was wonderful.

Also, I usually don't like movies that are this short (I consider any movie under 90 minutes short), but this movie was perfect. It put everything into that time frame just right, so it didn't seem packed in or rushed at all.

Parents: It's not a SCARY movie, but some parts were a little bit tense.

Final note: I like it that it wasn't cliched (that is, it wasn't the typical black-and-white good vs evil thing). There was some good and some bad on BOTH sides. I found myself rooting for the humans one minute and the Terrians the next!

This is a movie that's fun for kids of any age, and I think that parents will enjoy too! Like I said, it's a wonderful and awesome movie. Watch it. You'll be glad you did.

I guess that you can call it a sort of "cute" movie....although, there is some violence, and characters die (it's animated...so I can't say that people die). Probably not one to watch with the kids...but not really a movie for adults....but I guess if your kids enjoy wars and people dying...it would be okay.

Precursor to Avatar, but a great movie and enjoyed by the whole family. Excellent lesson in self sacrifice for what you believe is right even when the decision comes with consequences. Well put together film.

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.

Well, I give it an A for originality. As far as the CG goes, while some of the objects had fairly decent detail, the characters themselves were more along the lines of something you'd see on a Disney/Nick Jr. show. The acting, although there were numerous big name actors, felt a bit flat. Even the story line seemed rushed. There wasn't enough build up, at least in the beginning. For everything else I give it a solid D. If you want something different and can look past all that I mentioned, you may like this movie.

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.
