User Reviews: Took me longer to watch the whole thing than expected. Kept stopping after about :40 to do something else.
"Was it interesting?" I was expecting a darker story. The character motivations felt a little hollow.
1.5 out of 3 "Was it memorable?" The worst flaw is the movie trying too hard to be pretty. The attempted mesh between different animation styles was so distracting that it almost ruined some of the action scenes. Luckily there were enough action scenes to make up for this.
1.5 out of 3 "Was it entertaining?" It just felt long and badly paced, like 3 or 4 episodes spliced together. It progressed the story just enough to be adequate.
1.5 out of 3 Starting with 1 (because), 1 + 1.5 + 1.5 + 1.5 = 5.5 I’m rounding down to 5 because I feel that a :40 special with more traditional animation would have been find. They tried too hard.
