one of the best animation movies
23 April 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I always found the animation movies boring to some extent. However, this very funny movie made me change my opinion. The very well thought of jokes added a lot to the humorous atmosphere of the movie. ALong with the jokes a very important message for the whole human kind was expressed. I found it rather ironic to warn the world about the dangers of technology via an animation film which can be considered as an outcome of technology itself. If you are against technology and globalization then you'll surely love this movie. Anyways, the theme was good, the characters were funny. Especially Mercano is a very hilarious character and a cute one indeed. I would also commend on the script of the movie which seemed very professional and well thought of. Even though at the end of the movie, things get a bit strange, when people start dancing around, I would recommend this movie to everyone.
