Storyline

For years, the crew of the Solo Ship has been at war, and on the run, from their enemies, the Buff Clan. The Solo Ship has a major weapon at their disposal: a mysterious, supernatural robot known as the Ideon. However, the Buff Clan is working on their latest weapon: the Ganda Rowa, a powerful warship that might be even more powerful than the Ideon. Meanwhile, Karala, a member of the Solo crew and a former member of the Buff Clan, discovers that she is pregnant. She believes that this child, a messiah, could put an end to the conflict between the two factions. But a side-effect is that this child makes the Ideon more powerful, and so the war tragically escalates until the only thing a war causes - doom, death and destruction - are manifested.

Explosions and naked ghosts
3 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As a series Ideon always seemed like it had to temper its larger plot and character development for the sake of episodic battling, and while it would have been nice to this movie to be a more cerebral affair, it's ultimately more of the same. Be Invoked is an "expanded" finale to the series, created to fill in the gaps left by its premature demise. It's a more fitting end to the series: we get more information on what the Ideon wants and what it has to do with those dang babies, and there's a giant space battle to end them all that leads to an increasingly desperate situation on board the Solo Ship. It ends in a bizarre climax which is pretty much the same as the original series. Be Invoked clears a few things up, but less than you would think -- most of the movie is composed of space battling that is chaotic and kind of cluttered. Like with the series itself, there were moments of greatness, but on the whole I wanted more. And for a show with such a strong female cast, did we really need to see almost every one of them shot in the head? I would recommend Be Invoked to fans of the series, or for anyone who wants to see (a)everyone in the show naked at the end or (b)where that gif of a toddler getting his head blown off comes from.
