The phrase 'Visually Stunning' gets tossed around a lot, but it applies here. As for the story, it kind of feels like Snyder reacting to criticisms of 300's politics, but through the medium of anti-fascist cartoon owls. (Which is....a good thing, I think?) Solid fantasy adventure, although I can see younger children being traumatized by parts of this.
Looks incredible on a 3d tv, Snyder still needs to work on getting us emotionally involved with characters,he eschews genuine warmth and humour and relys on peril and danger instead.
However, he certainly creates some awe inspiring and at times breathtaking, beautiful sequences.
Weak script and a predictable storyline, but the visuals... Unbelievable. I have never seen computer animation as beautiful as this, and the action sequences are stunning in a wonderful znyderesque way. The kids must love this film. B
