ZEDD'S OPINION:

This is a clever story, but very slow paced. Very slow paced. I liked the creature effects and the characters but the pass really got to me. Plus there were elements I didn't really understand at all. So, in light of this I give it, 3 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Slow paced? No watching a turtle Marathon is slow paced, this was darn right boring. Too boring I'm afraid. I just can't recommend it for that reason. Zedd makes good point but that boredom factor I just can't get past, for me it's the BLACK HOLE!

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does do a good job.)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (The creature effects are impressive.)
+ CHARACTERS (I do like the characters.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- PACE (It has serious pacing issues, so bad VOLTRON can't give it a good review.)

...AND FINALLY...

- CONFUSING (There are some confusing elements in the story that neither of us truly understands.)
