Storyline

The beautiful world of Gaya is home to a community of creatures, known as the Snurks, who are much smaller than humans, but who have an uncanny resemblance to them. But the Snurks are facing imminent danger. Someone has stolen the magic stone called Dalamite without which this world is doomed. Two Snurks named Boo and Zino embark on a dangerous mission to track down and recover the stone. As they attempt to find the stone, their journey takes them into another world that is both strange and frightening! Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Back To Gaya (a.k.a The Snurks) is an indie animation masterpiece!
21 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overall, The Snurks is really great movie. A Modern Sci-Fi Fantasy full of comedy, action, drama and suspense.

The visuals are very impressive. The computer generated animation of "The Snurks" is as good as any Pixar or Dreamworks movie. First CG movie made entirely in Germany.

The story line is unique enough to keep the attention of children and adults. Toy Story with a Shrek attitude. I am not a movie spoiler, so I will not go into detail.

The acting uses motion capture to create very realistic characters. Great voice-over work.

The direction of the script keeps you entertained throughout the entire movie. A complete first rate production. Last Michael Kamen soundtrack.
