The in-space action had some nice CG, but almost everything that occurred planetside was fairly lame and toned down. They tried to have some character development with the new alien girl character, but I think the actress's acting was sub-par. Since it's a Sci-fi movie, I still think it's worth a watch, but just don't expect anything special.

The ending was an impossible treat that didn't have the best CG, but yeah...at least it was an ending. I think it's worth a rental if you're not expecting too much.

To put it lightly, I could've put a little bit more money into my 401k and would've been more satisfied instead of wasting it on this garbage. This movie was an odd animated film about some story that would've come straight out of some half-rate fantasy Asian MMO. Seriously. Think about that for a second. Picture an average Chinese or Korean MMO game, now picture the storyline and/or cutscenes, and bam you have this film. I recently saw Warcraft and at least that movie had a story to go along with it...this one was just a mess. Special powers, special mobs, fancy character titles, and a setting that had next to no backstory. I didn't give a rat's ass about any of the characters, I barely knew what was going on plot-wise, and they kept on making these very bad scene jumps that had no connecting content. Horrible movie-making.
Suffice to say this has turned me off to foreign films for a while...I'll have to be much more picky in the future and not think that only the best made it to US shores, because holy shit it didn't.

This movie wasn't good. It didn't super suck, but man it shouldn't be considered a movie. It was a compilation of many random scenes shoved together to kinda create a story, but nothing really flowed like a real plot should. I'd even venture to say that it felt like a short story or even a graphic novel comic. Some of the content in the film was totally geared towards preparing the audience for the eventual spinoffs like Aquaman and Wonder Woman. This isn't bad per se, but it seems sorta lame to directly build it into a film, just like a hidden marketing ploy.
Anyway, this one wasn't worth a watch at all. I would've rather have taken a nap and caught up on sleep.
