Not real
8 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

There are movies that only (or more likely) work when you watch them with children. Or with your inner child being on. This is no Pixar and nowhere near it of course. But it's still a nice little movie, that succeeds in letting us into a world where flies can be heroes. Of course no kid will want their parents to buy them flies after that ... And of course, the flies do not look anything like real flies. There are quite a few animated movies out there, where science was thrown out for fantasy ... same happens here.

The 3-D is decent enough, but it's more the dialogue and the characters that might convince to watch this and like it. On the other hand, I can see that some people will find it "too patriotic". But I do think, that it plays clever on the whole old rivalry, the two (former) most powerful countries had. If you can handle the cynic in you, you will actually enjoy this
