The rendering is archaic now , but the quality of the animation (rig puppeteering) is awesome and the story is really well paced , I'm surprised this hasn't been remade and turned into a proper movie by one of the big directors yet.
There is a scene near the beginning where Dr Aki Ross is weightless in space and it has a beautiful quality about it , In my opinion the perfect balance between realism and NPR.
A lot of these sort of CG movies make me cringe , but considering how old this is even 'The Kiss' is fairly convincing and has a weight and intent to it which is better than some real actor based stuff I've seen come out of Hollywood
I have a geek streak and it resonates with this movie , I love it.
