Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

Though the computer animation is not the worst, this is a confusing mess of too many "good guys" who mostly seem to bear striking resemblances to popular characters from movies and television. Though a sense of good vs. evil comes out of the chaos, there are so many different groups of protagonists linked together it's impossible to understand why or how they came to be where they are. It's almost as if the filmmakers were trying to appeal to kids who like medieval fantasy, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and Pixar movies by cramming them into the same movie.

References to a "sacred tree" and an "Aries Crystal" also are thrown in for no discernible reason. With the exception of the demonic-looking monster, this movie might be enjoyed by younger viewers on the basis of visual stimuli alone. But for everyone else, the unwieldy, multifaceted story and its sloppy execution make it excruciating to watch.
