Storyline

A soldier awakens on a gray, deserted plane. He rises, stretches - is that a drop of blood we see on the ground? He removes his helmet. A large television set sweeps into view. He walks to it, pushes a video tape into the slot, and the tape begins to play. "Welcome to Heaven, you are dead." The soldier hastens away; another television set rolls in front of him. The soldier draws his gun. Can he put an end to death? Or do other states await him? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I Got The Joke
10 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

This seems to have split the reviewers here straight down the middle . I just caught it and had to bare in mind that this was done away back in 2001 . Since then 3D animation has come forward in leaps and bounds to the point one might become blasé about the whole concept and the animation here would have seemed genuinely impressive back in the day of its production . I did like the story which is constructed in much the same way as " There was a Scotsman , Englishman and Irishman and they walk in to a pub and .. " with the entire story being built up to a punch line . I also think there's a subtext here that many people spend far too much time in front of a television , games console or laptop screen so I'm guessing it hits home to all us contributors who spend far too much time on the IMDb
