    This is a great animated film. It has a good story and actually seems to have foreshadowed several films that would be released years later. Fun to watch, much better than the vast majority of animated films that are widely released.

    It was actually better than I thought it was going to be, but I was not expecting much.

    Very imaginative and the story is quite good. Very creative. Although the animation is good, it was not overly impressive. i enjoyed it.

    As original and convincing a feature as the better Japanese animes of recent years --"Tekkonkinkreet" comes to mind, along with the slightly older "Metropolis."

    Terra, to be fair, looks fairly clean, and the 3-D is totally passable, but watching it will be no fun for either kids or adults.
  3. Tentle, dreamy animated sci-fi tale.
