Eye-opening and humanizing, this is as atypical an animated feature as one is likely to find washing ashore in the United States.
Watchable but by no means worth the money and effort necessary to see it theatrically.
Younger kids will have fun with the movie. Adults - well, that’s another story.
Made for those who prize acting, slow-burn suspense, and narrative over the usual loud, empty summertime fare.

This is a clear example of a story being thrown together to serve the special effects, not the other way around.
