Quotes

[first lines]
Title Card: In 1969 an estimated 500 million people watched as the first man stepped out of the Apollo lander and onto the surface of the moon. / The feat was the culmination of a space race between the United States and the Soviet Union. / A space race that pushed human beings to the VERY LIMITS OF OUR SCIENTIFIC PROWESS. / The new test of our exploratory mettle will be a manned mission to MARS. / The only problem is / We just aren't that good at stuff anymore.

NOT A SciFi Cartoon
4 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all don't watch this if you are expecting a cartoon - this is "rotoscope" animation, with live actors being converted to animation by computer and entirely CGI settings, none of it very well done at all. Likewise don't expect a hard SciFi thriller or actioner. In fact, don't expect a formula plot of any kind.

But if you like quirky, off-beat, a little bit corny comedy this one is completely harmless and fun. No you won't laugh out loud, but you'll chuckle, and you may just smile from credits to credits. The acting is pedestrian but charming, the story is deep as a teaspoon, but the script is cute and the CGI is sort of like the drawings of a sixth grade class. Don't expect much and you'll enjoy this little 90 minute diversion.
