Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

It's hard to get past the sheer hubris of DVD packaging that announces a "feature-length adventure," only to find a 44-minute film inside. And that film, according to the company's website, is also designed as two 22-minute segments (which presumably means it will appear as upcoming series' episodes). When those factors are combined with the lack of backstory, character identification, or Slugterra history, it's clear that this offering is meant for kids already exposed to, and fans of, this lucrative toy-film franchise. Or secondarily, as a confusing introduction to new viewers who may be intrigued and want to venture further into the caverns of Slugterra. The movie is funny enough (a comedy runner about Pronto losing his pants surely will make kids laugh), busy enough (the onslaught of familiar comic villains is nonstop), and filled with enough blaster-action mayhem to satisfy those kids who appreciate their slugs as heroes.
