Surprisingly Good
10 September 2013 | by madalitso2020See all my reviews

This is my first movie review on IMDb so bear with me. I had my doubts at first about watching this movie considering it's not done by the main animation power houses ( Disney and Dream Works) but to my surprise it's right up there with the big boys.

The animation is exceptional,the character designs are great,the storyline isn't half bad,the characters compliment each other well.In my opinion it's way better than the Croods or Rise of the guardians.

All in all,It's a fun movie to watch.The only thing I didn't like was the voice casting of Brendan Fraser as Scorch Supernova.He just didn't do it for the character.But on the other hand Sarah Jessica Parker did a great job voicing Kira Supernova.As for first time feature film directer Carl Brunker he did a wonderful job directing this one.
