Better then expected

My ten-year-old really wanted to watch this. I wasn't interested in another animated sci-fi war movie. However, it had more depth than I expected and was a decent film to watch at home.

I thought it was a good movie about the importance of peace and working together. Wish I had seen it in 3D but went to the wrong theater.
