Well made for a CGI though still not on par with the Western counterparts
17 November 2012 | by Kong Ho MengSee all my reviews

Surprisingly well made for a CGI animated film. The storyline was very creative and well-made given the type of material it is based on - I would even say it kind of reminded me of the solid plot in Toy Story 3 which was made later?

Although it still suffered from the major setbacks seen in most other unsuccessful CGI films. For example, the lack of chemistry between characters, motivation, relationships between events), and the characters lacked the emotional features that can be seen in Finding Nemo/Toy Story 3.

Still, there were touching moments in the film and some good plot twists, overall the film still managed to impress.
