From Amazon.co.uk

The last of the four commission direct-to-DVD spin-off movies for Futurama, Into The Wild Green Yonder fortunately leaves us salivating for more. Will we get them? Possibly, but for now, it’s perhaps wiser to deal with what we’ve got.

Into The Wild Green Yonder continues the environmental theme that has underpinned many of the specials, with the plan this time surrounding Amy’s dad, Leo Wong, and his desire to sweep away part of the galaxy so that he can build a golf course (the biggest of its type in the universe, naturally). As this plan unfolds, Fry manages to pick up some mind-reading abilities and Bender embarks on an affair, amongst other events. And while Into The Wild Green Yonder does focus tightly on a handful of characters, leaving some of the others a little short-changed, the star attractions here all get plenty of time.

And that’s been one of the strengths of these DVD spin-offs. Running to the best part of 90 minutes, they’ve taken their time to set things up, and made the most of the extended running time. Into The Wild Green Yonder is no different, and really benefits--albeit at the cost of one or two slower moments--from having a bit more space. The end result is a very funny, enjoyable way to spend 90 minutes, and one of the best of the spin-off movies, too. Here’s hoping though that for Futurama, this isn’t actually the end… --Jon Foster

Product Description

The fourth full-length adventure from Matt 'The Simpsons' Groening's animated sci-fi series. Pizza delivery boy from Earth, Philip Fry, who woke up in the year 3000 after accidentally freezing himself in 1999, continues his adventures delivering the goods for Planet Express. Accompanied, as usual, by the beautiful one-eyed mutant alien Leela, and Bender the robot, Fry sets out to save the universe from the bad guys who are threatening the future Green Age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Number 9 shirt guy speaks! 25 Feb 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Cracking off full power jokes at a higher rate than any of the other films, and serious quality of animation and direction, this probably is the best film of the four. Its plot is fabulously constructed (if you think it is too 'jumpy', it's probably because you haven't got the small amount of brains required to follow) with interweaving stories from all the main characters.
It's a great entry into the sci-fi genre; the themes of evolution running beneath it providing a wonderful insight into the realms of possibility, and a basis for a huge amount of fantastically original funny moments.
Crazy, surreal and blindingly hilarious you can call this, but never dull.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a word.... EPIC! 24 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
Could this be the end of Futurama? Let's hope not!
From 2003 - 2007 we have had to not only put up with no Futurama but awful Simpsons episodes, despite the fact it isn't funny anymore!
With the successful sales of the first 3 DVDs and a satisfying and EPIC conclusion to this 'season', all we can do is keep our fingers crossed for more of the Planet Express crew!
Buy this DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars The end? 19 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
If you already own the boxsets of Futurama, and have enjoyed the movies, its probably a safe bet to say you can stop reading here and buy this. You wont be disappointed. The last of the 4 straight-to-DVD movies is undoubtedly the best, with the team back on form for the last (?) outing for the crew.

The plot, in standard futurama fashion, manages to evolve and take its time, rather than jumping in and rushing. For fans of the series, there are a number of clever in-jokes, and several long running plot lines are wrapped up. As well as being one of the funniest pieces of film I've seen in a while, with the Robot Don's appearance being particularly good, there are some genuinely touching moments, with a conclusion that is both heartwarming and emotional, and will leave many fans with a lump in their throat.

So is it the end? The conclusion is suitably satisfying, while being left open enough to be continued. So here's hoping....

3.0 out of 5 stars The last of Futurama...? 22 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
Having been a big fan of Futurama the series, it was great news that there were to be feature-length episodes. For what it's worth, I thought that Bender's Big Score was a really good start, Beast With A Billion Backs held its own as essentially an extra-long episode, and Bender's Game could rival the others once it got into its pace.

Unfortunately, I'd say that Into The Wild Green Yonder is the weakest of the DVDs. Whereas Bender's Game was a well structured story that picked up once it reached a certain point, this is more all over the place and inconsistent in its humour and quality. It brings some minor characters more into the frame but these aren't developed much so don't work as well as the old favourites.

The humour is still in the vein of the Futurama feature-length episodes (slightly different to the series) but focuses less on the big laughs and more on progressing an impressively multi-stranded storyline and on satirising capitalism and environmentalism.

All that said, there are a lot of little laughs in the episode, some good visual silliness and a typical Bender side story which I felt absolutely steals the show from the Fry-focused storyline.

If you're a Futurama fan and have seen the other feature-length episodes, it's worth getting this. If you haven't bothered with the feature-length episodes or you're coming to Futurama for the first time, this isn't where to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely the best 25 Feb 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In all my reviews for these films I thought they were great at the time only to find the subsequent film better. I think I gave a couple of the others 5 stars when compared to this one they by no means deserve it.

This is the first film that feels like one of the episodes. The jokes come thick and fast and provide many laugh out loud moments. A couple of times my housemates and I were laughing for so long that we had to rewind to hear the bits we'd missed. There are lines in it that are still making me chuckle as I write this.

The end is a bit odd and perhaps unnecessary but I suppose it does fit as a possible farewell from the writers.

There are a couple of special features that had an amazing sounding description but turned out to be disappointments. For instance one of them is "Zapp Branningans guide to making love at a woman" which is just a bunch of clips from the series of things he's said to Leela. Likewise "Bender's movie theatre etiquette" is merely the seen from "Raging Bender" in series 2 dubbed over with new dialogue.

In summary: This film is very good. Buy this and don't bother with the other films unless you feel overly compelled and the sooner they make a new series the better.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the four movies 15 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
This is definately the best of the four straight to DVD Futurama movies and a good send off for the show. Where the majority of the gags in previous outings felt somewhat strained and unusally 'gross out', thankfully in this episode the clever one liners and visual gags that made me regard Futurama as one of the wittier animated shows are back. There's also a lot more dumping on Zoidberg, which always gets a laugh from me...

'Into the Wild Green Yonder' has a plot that flows much better than the other movies. However, the side story of Bender's involvement with the Don Bot's Moll does disappear quite quickly, but thankfully all of the other plot points set up in what would be the first 'part' are all followed through to a satisfying conclusion.

Speaking of conclusions, I would have to say that as this is technically the show's very end (given that Fox and Groening have both said nothing about it's future) I think the end will equally satisfy and frustrate a lot of fans but is on the whole very suitable even if a little too self knowing. All in all, just we needed from possibly the last ever Futurama episode; a lot of laughs and a glimmer of hope for the future, even if it may be a futile one.
