Whole nine yards! I mean this was amazing!, 20 August 2005
Author: JoneK from Finland

I had some expectation's about the movie, but this was just amazing! I mean, it was action packet supreme cutting and every time you tough man this is just create! You where blown away by the next scene! CGI was just amazing and acting was just brilliant. Man i'm proud of guys who make such excellent movie with such low budget.

I just bought Babylon 5 final series box "Season 5" And i must say, the CGI in this movie is much better than in original B5, well it is newer than B5 but as i understand the original CGI models of B5 where destroyed in fire. So these are build from scratch. Allso Star Trek models where equal comparison to the newest movies.

7 years in the making, it was worth every second.
