great action and effects!!
3 January 2013 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

While i'm not an avid movie watcher and do admire the current animation flicks, i like old memorable high action animation. the CGI now a days is so clean, its nothing more than watching a live sitcom. on that note, that is why i found the WOTW:G so mesmerizing to watch. and with 3D how amazing is that. while using this style of animation with an old story concept, it really brought it to a high level of realism and excitement. i felt like i was in the midst of the fighting and gunfire. the ratcheting mechanized drum of the invaders and fighters, and machinery i thought was over the top. the Dolby digital was amazing. i thought the film was a testament to the hard work and vision of the producers and crew, great writing and concept. what a treat to see it on the big screen in 3D with an excited audience. thank you for bringing back the good old comic animation of the past into a future quality action packed movie. i am very impressed. thank you.
