Wind of changes is good.

I like how this Apeman standing by his hands is portrait of Always Uncontent Conservative. Fighting with new ideas only because they are new looks as cringefull as in the movie.

A Masterclass in Animated Cinema

This movie surprised me. Upon my 6th time watching I had picked up the fact that I have never seen a movie this many times. The re watch value is amazing and the action and animation is spectacular. The way the characters interact with each other keeping with their designated character traits always made for great entertainment. Any drama to intervene was intense and masterful perfection. I would recommend this to anyone as the deep core values bleed into our lives today. beautiful movie 10/10
