Superb animated feature
28 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

The Movie uses a great musical score to give us a powerful intro, and steadily stays amazing throughout the film.

The animation was very surreal. Like animation should, it steps out of the boundaries of reality, much like I assume the book does.

Helping out was a psychedelic influenced music score that included that song by Iron Butterfly.

The man on the moon travels to earth on a fire ball and now attempts to get back home before a dictator who set his sights on the rock gets there first.

It's a very good animated feature. Recommend
