Nyra: My lord.
Metalbeak: Hm?
Nyra: Our work at St. Aegolius is very nearly done. The last of the flecks are on their way, and I've brought you an offering with beating hearts. Your new soldiers, tested and pure. One in particular shows exceptional promise.
Metalbeak: I'll be the judge of that. You. Soldier. Step forward. Yes, you're right to be afraid in my presence. What is your name?

A Remarkable Achievement
3 October 2010 | by eisenstein-mikeSee all my reviews

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 :)
