War of the Worlds: Goliath (2012) is visually pretty but storytelling
wise, it is absolutely boring. If it wasn't the awesome concept from
the novel and the effort on visuals, this one honestly might end up
being the second animated feature I'd rate 1 star. But I rated it 5
stars anyway, as some of you might like it for whatever reasons.
When compared to all older Malaysian animated features, War of the Worlds: Goliath (2012) does has a nice feel to it but the plot is unfortunately quite bad. There are so many illogical scenes that are left unexplained or unfinished even until the end. The backstory? Certainly without much thought as it is not clear or even established in the animated feature itself.
I understand alien invasion and steampunk are interesting but the series of random elements and events here won't make it a great storytelling or an enjoyable, at least for me even though it is the prettiest Malaysian animated film. (Out of four that I have seen.)
