I never thought I would see a computer animated feature film with as much attention to perfection as a Pixar film in my lifetime. This movie was it. Just amazing!
Each frame a visual masterpiece. Movement choreographed like a perfect ballet. Unimaginable detail in each filament on the owl's feathers. Eyes glistening with soul. For gods sake even their irises dilating with their heartbeat!
The story was never dull for a moment. Its tempo kept gaining speed to the end hurling me to the edge of my seat.
If you don't see this in 3D you have missed out on an amazing experience. Enjoy :)
