Bloody Marvelous Bit of Animation

Outstanding film, originally meant for 3D that hasn't suffered in the slightest from being banished to VHS rental tapes. A heady mix of Star Wars, manga influence and even a little Moebius take this Ten Commandments style film in fine style for a braethtaking ride, matched by beautiful set and character design, superb music and outstanding voices. Lobby for this one on DVD!

Pretty Good Although Derivative of Star Wars

Some very good animation is combined with a very good score by Andrew Belling in what sadly was a bomb at the box office. I suppose a lot of money was pumped into this production due to it being produced in 3D. According to this site it cost $15 million to produce. The film only garnered in over $3 million at the US box office, which ain't bad, because it was the 80s and this was a cartoon.

The big influence for this film was George Lucas' STAR WARS. Not to mention the opening credits are a little reminiscent of the STAR TREK films as well. Anyways it is the story of a slave named Orin (Joe Colligan) who along with his people spend their lives mining for crystals for Zygon (Anthony De Longis). Orin though finds the hilt of a mythical sword which only he can use. He escapes the underground to find what life looks like elsewhere. Along the way he meets a smuggler named Dagg (Carmen Argenziano), a couple of droids (Tyke Caravelli and Les Tremayne) and a beautiful princess (Noelle North). It must be sounding quite similar to STAR WARS now.

It is a fun cartoon, although it is a little more adult orientated as it does have some sharp language and a little bit of sexuality blended in as well. It was rated PG for good reason.

Decent!

Despite being a rip off of Star Wars in parts, the animation was solid enough and the story moved along at a decent clip. The action was interesting (for the time) and the villain was suitably harsh. The whole spirit of heroes past thing was odd, but any movie with the balls to kill off a character by brutal strangulation at the start of the story is got to be given a look.
