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.
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.
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.
