This movie was soooo awesome! I can't believe how sharp the graphics were and how strong the story line was. The 3D really added to the realism, and made a difference.

Recently I read the book "Ender's Game" and I was very much in a mood for a sci fi movie. This movie is done very well. First of all, I don't really really care that much for sound or graphic... i mean, it's 2009... they're all decent at the least. I watched this movie 3D and it was totally worth it. They constantly use the 3D to their advantage. The story is awesome. There's a lot things that happen in 90 minutes or so. The battle scene was unbelievable. I would love to go see this movie again.

Different and underrated

Battle For Terra is a very emotional film - it has a message, and it delivers it in a very hard-hitting (and sometimes heavy-handed) way. Characters live and die, friends betray and redeem, and good and evil are not so much the issue as is survival and extinction. Even the contrived "peaceful resolution" (which I felt was weak, but necessary) offers a challenging perspective. The film suffers from poor marketing (must all animated features be Pixar/Disney or Dreamworks to be "good"?), and the 3D effect were average at best; other films have made better use of 3D technology. Save money and watch it in 2D, but give it a try.

I thought that the story line was interesting with the aliens as the friendlier, peaceful beings and the Earth successors as the aggresors. It was what I have come to expect from animated films recently: decent story line, some character development and a conclusion. What I am not happy about is that the first few 3-D films have been hyped as such and the experience to cost premium is not there--yet. If I had a choice of seeing this movie in a non 3-D venue I would have. The best 3-D of the whole experience were the previews. I took my kids to see Monsters v. Aliens in 3-D as well and both were disappointing relative to the 3-D experience. This took a movie I would have rated a "Go" to a "so-so".
