A Cryptic Film
30 January 2021 | by deathgrip1234See all my reviews

Cryptozoo is an interesting look at the relationship between idealism, the utopian vision, and the alluring power of controlling dreams by government forces.

The animation can go from being really good to mediocre. I have no word in for animation but I do give the artist one hell of a prop for hand drawing every scene. I really think the backdrops are incredible looking especially towards the end. As for the voice acting, it's very good. Love the acting and story. It's very unique and creative. My biggest complaint is the pacing and I can't tell if it's the animation or the editing. It goes slow, fast, slow, fast....you get it.

If you loved Dash's work from before, you'll most certainly find this film to be an improvement over the last.
