visual overload
6 February 2020 | by iq-crash-testSee all my reviews

Did not actually manage to finish the movie.

everything in this movie starts out great in the intro, quick exposition and worldbuilding that doesnt feel forced, done through interesting and original visuals.

then the movie starts. you're instantly treated with a pastel coloured firework display of agressive jumpcuts and flashy animations, which could have been amazing if used sparingly, but it just doesnt stop. the exaggerated and at times needlessly detailed in your face art style of the primary action on the screen could have been great, but paired with the low fidelity backgrounds that for some reason have to be in blocky pastel colours, it turns into an everchanging abstract painting on your screen that prevents you from ever finding a focus point.

the acting is not bad, and the style brings back fond memories of 90's kids cartoon shows.

im sure there's an audience who will enjoy this movie's "over the top everything", but personally i wasnt ever able to pay attention to what was going on, and unable to finish watching the movie.
