3.0 out of 5 stars Cute cartoon - well designed and constant story, 30 April 2010
This review is from: Battle for Terra [2007] [US Import] [Blu-ray] [Region A] (Blu-ray)
This is a well rounded story of a close encounter. The story is not unique but the characters and interactions are unique.

Mala (voice -Evan Rachel Wood) a resident of the superficially peaceful planet of Tarra encounters a downed human pilot Jim Stanton (voice-Luke Wilson) and with the help a robotic buddy Giddy (voice-David Cross) try to find an alternative to all or nothing war.

The film is great in the effect that it is not just people with white hats fighting people in black hats. The animation does not try to be anymore than animation. However I only saw the Blu-ray version and not the 3D version.

One of the fun things is to try to figure out some of the more popular voices as the different characters appear.

Watching the extras on the DVD makes me thing that someday there will be a 3 hour version. The voice over reminds us that this fill was made years before there was a Bush vs. Obama; so do not read too much into the characters. Several other places in the story they try to not be too sensitive to the movie audience. Jim cannot do a kamikaze because it would look too much like 911.

I was interested in the story enough to take part and kibitz rather than just observe. However there was nothing spectacular beyond entertainment.
