Goofs

The spinning cube at the center of Area 33H shows up as a changing hexagon within Flatland. By analogy, the spinning hypercube at the end of the movie should appear as a changing polyhedral solid, but instead it appears as the full convex-hull three-dimensional projection. See more »

Yep. Geometry Just Got More Boring With "Flatland"
1 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Psssst! - Confidentially speaking (from an adult's perspective) - "Flatland" (a 35-minute, CGI, geometry lesson for the kiddies) was just Hollywood, once again, frantically scrambling to come up with something/anything truly original and interesting to dazzle and entertain, and, then, falling "flat" on its (*bleep*bleep*) face one more time.

Yes. I will admit that, visually, "Flatland" had some "OK" moments - But, for the most part, its story contained way too much mean-mindedness and the whole scenario got pretty tired by repeatedly driving home the point about the existence of the 3rd dimension.

I was really hoping that "Flatland" was going to be one helluva total roller-coaster ride of non-stop animation wizardry, but, instead, it was, pretty much, the same/old, same/old from start to finish.
