BATTLE for TERRA is a fantastic journey to worlds we have only dreamed of. It is a story of friendship, family, sacrifice and most importantly, the realization that all of our survival relies on our earth's precious natural resources. Written by
Some may say that this looks like a children's movie, but that ain't so. Given, it doesn't have many gory details when the fighting is concerned but yet it is violent enough not to let your youngest watch.
While writing this it is still some time until Avatar is on the big screen, but this felt like a preview albeit a animated family version.
Even though it is animated, the movie was beautifully made effect-wise. It is both simplistic and elegant at the same time.
There's no time for idle reflections, it goes almost straight to the action. Normally I wouldn't like that, but it worked well for this movie. It was short, and to the point.
I will keep this in my collection along with Akira, Final Fantasy, Princess Mononoke amongst others. A small but bright gem.
