The message is hackneyed, the narration forced and stilted, the artwork surprising
11 May 2011 | by (Taichung, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

I give the work a few stars out of deference to the awesome graphic work.

But, of course, it's all a sort of cosmic shadow play with laughably cartoony images and a level of nagging graphic and narrative recrimination suggesting not a little spiteful hate against nothing less than the human race itself. Well, that sucks. Add to that the idea that one's "salvation" comes down to choosing the right one of two shadows and swearing one's fealty thereto, and you have a real loser.

The narrator has the rudiments of voice talent, but lacks the soul of true talent; an ability to render the text in a manner that reflects a sensitivity to its deep meaning. Of course, the story doesn't have a deep meaning, so perhaps he's let off the hook on this point.

I sometimes think about how, whenever fundamentalist Christians collect some money in a bid to snatch a few eyeballs away from the Hollywood juggernaut, something goes wrong. What goes wrong is that, when it comes down to it, what wins or loses in this game is an honest attention to aesthetic values. Now, I'm NOT saying "Hollywood" is a paragon of taste--Lord, I'd never say *that*! I'm just saying Christians will have to do more than toss money at their divine wishes. They'll need to commandeer genuine artistic values to make it come true. A dogged insistence on doctrinally pure production staff is the perennial downfall of these efforts.

If a Catholic, or Muslim, is a better script doctor, then So Be It.
