    The point is to show us what can be done with recycled traditional animation in the IMAX 3-D process, and the demonstration is impressive.
  2. 75
    So impressive you welcome each and every one for the film's 48 minute duration.

    Will delight video game fans in search of over-scaled eye candy.

    Effectively a demo. It doesn't give you the whole picture, but it lets you know what's possible. It's hard not to wish the ride could have lasted longer.
  5. More about future potential than present achievement.
  6. Some delightful surprises, but the sort of heavy-metal, high-definition sci-fi look that dominates the proceedings, plus the relentless pace and endless morphing, are somewhat tiring.

    Until the IMAX 3-D format is used to produce effects that are not trivial, it will never be anything more than what it is right now: a grandiose amusement park attraction.
  8. Crippled by lame storytelling.
  9. This novelty film is little more than a strung-together product reel of animation pieces put to the 3-D and IMAX test.
  10. 50
    All the segments are technically polished, but none offers much substance.
  11. 50
    A techno-happy bumrush screaming the joy of never thinking twice about repeating things ad nauseam, and as loud as possible.
  12. Unabashed, and often quite diverting, technological overkill.
