This movie is a cinematic masterpiece. To put it at three stars is an honest understatement. Three stars is not giving this movie the glory it deserves. It is wonderfully animated and brilliantly casted. The dialogue is funny and witty and the plot is simply fantastic. The overall message is great and you can tell how much work went into this movie. It is beautifully crafted and wonderfully made. 5/5 stars.

Trash. Not funny. Totally misogynist esp. because the villain is evil because he's rejected by a woman so he goes on a violent destructive tirade. Fails the Bechdel test.
