News & Interviews for Kaena: The Prophecy
Critic Reviews for Kaena: The Prophecy
The monsters are derivative, the attempts at humor are mostly feeble and the story, in the end, lacks a certain je ne sais quoi.
Derivative and aimless filmmaking by directors and 'writers' who know only how to craft eye candy.
Simplistic writing and one-dimensional characters do in this animation film.
There are moments in Kaena that are absorbing, but too much of the time it simply becomes tedious.
Augurs well for dazzling visual work but struggles mightily on the storytelling front.
Audience Reviews for Kaena: The Prophecy
I found this a better-than-average science-fiction cartoon. Kaena figures out why her world is dying. You need to watch this movie twice to figure out which race is which, and how they are all intertwined.
Titan A.E meets Final Fantasy. While the characters and their gestures and facial features aren't always convincing, the backgrounds and ideas for the world this computer animated movie takes place in are really breathtaking at times. Unfortunately the story isn't very original either. But not bad.
The film was disjointed. I really wanted to like it, but it just felt flat.
