It's clear that animators can now achieve levels of visual depth that were previously impossible.

As for the space stuff, well, George Lucas need not lose any sleep.

A tougher endurance test than anything NASA could cook up.

Top Critic

And while it may not teach sprogs anything about insects - these ones have human eyes and four limbs - director Ben Stassen has made a fair fist of portraying the Apollo mission with some accuracy.

Top Critic

Fly Me to the Moon bills itself as the first animated feature created expressly for 3-D. Too bad it wasn't created expressly for, you know, pleasure or art.

You can skip it in all three dimensions.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

It is a family story meant for younger viewers, and passes by without too much effort.

Without much else beyond its 3-D design going for it, this adventure grows old very fast.

One of the strangest misfires in recent animation history.

No amount of fiddling with funny glasses in the theatre will keep you from noticing a weak storyline.

Unfortunately, the flies aren't so compelling.

Fine family entertainment with a particularly strong message for the small fry.

Boxoffice Magazine

G-rated, 3D animated adventure of three plucky young flies who hitch a ride on Apollo 11 plods rather than soars. And maggots with faces aren't cute.

Full Review… | October 13, 2008
Film Journal International

Despite some astonishing visual sequences, a flimsy script and frankly awful character design ground this film before it can blast off.

Shadows on the Wall

Without the special effects, this would be a routine and occasionally dull adventure, but the 3D animation is simply astonishing and the film is worth seeing for that alone.

The result is only just worth 90 minutes of anybody's time, and has Buzz Aldrin appearing at the end to assure everyone that none of it was remotely possible. Surprise, surprise!

This 3D animation about a trio of pesky houseflies hitching a ride on Apollo 11 will give you a buzz only if you've missed the last 15 years of superior animations.

If 3D is going to make a giant leap, it requires a more exciting movie than this.

Sun Online

Cheap and cheerless, it all resembles a supermarket own-brand version of similar but much superior fare such as A Bug's Life, making you wish for a plague of spiders to put them out of their - and our - misery.

Daily Mirror [UK]

This witless 3D animated feature tries its best but never achieves lift-off.

Total Film

Yet there's still enough to hold the attention - the actual Apollo equipment has the ring of authenticity - and it's worth taking the trip just to gawp at the sheer beauty of the programmer's art.

Very boring and earthbound entertainment for the children.

Abysmally dull "family" film not recommended for anyone over 5.

And the 3D sucks too.
