It a good movie; as, it's not gory; rather, it's more suspenseful as well, thought provoking..

I'm not sure. It's weird. The production was apparently very troubled and it shows.
The tone especially. I assumed it was a kid's film (it's directed by Don Bluth and Gary Goldman, although they didn't some into the project until quite late) and was surprised to find it quite serious, with a few sexually tinged scenes and a bunch of blood and violence. At the same time it's not really compelling to an older audience either. And teenagers don't watch a whole lot of cartoons that aren't comedies, especially back then, which is probably why it flopped tremendously.

The plot isn't good. It's rather cliché and generic and I don't find it the least bit captivating. Character's motivations seem to change on a whim for no reason and most of what happens make it feel to me like they were checking boxes on a sci-fi and animated film tropes list.
The villains are boring and their motivations unclear. For most of the film, I had no idea what the big MacGuffin actually was supposed to be or why it's important, which is a problem. Some decisions made seriously lack sense and the chain of events never felt natural to me.

The characters aren't terribly unique. All very generic.
There's a lot of dissonance regarding the characters, too. The human characters are realisticly designed and animated (sometimes through rotoscoping) and attempt grounded, multi-dimensional personalities (not very succesfully) while the alien characters are more cartoonish looking and with undeveloped, wacky personalities. It rather clashes.

The animation is mixed. Some parts look choppy and low-framerate while others are very good looking. Rotoscoping often looks akward but they did a good job with it in this film. But the 3D GCI animated portions clash with the traditional 2D parts at times.

As a kid I would've loved it. But the plot and characters are a bit too generic for an adult, cynical me. Still, I enjoyed it because I love sci-fi and animation and would recommend it to anyone who does. I feel like this is a film that'll grow on me with time. But it's overal rather meh.

Batman: The Long Halloween. Part 1.

Animated DC movie where some unknown assailant is murdering higher ups in the Falcone crime syndicate, starting on Halloween night. Batman goes through a list of Falcone rivals, including the Joker, but comes up empty handed. I suppose I gotta wait for part 2... or read the graphic novel.

Did you enjoy it? I've been wondering if i should watch it. Would you recommend waiting till the 2nd part comes out?

Also, I'm currently watching the first of the 3 live action movies of Rurouni Kenshin on Funimation. I saw that Netflix did a new one and realized I've never seen the others. It's one of my favorite animes though.

I very much liked it, and I highly recommend it.
