It's action-packed and the first taste of what's to come for the series, making it an important primer for Jack's universe.

This beautifully drawn, animated, and edited cartoon is a cut above most.

A blast to watch, and you can see Tartakovsky's spaghetti western, Star Wars, Conan, and Seven Samurai influences everywhere. That makes it one of the most interesting and kinetic American cartoons you can ask for.

Good looking with a pleasing visual starkness, but boring. Small children may feel differently.

Tartakovsky places an emphasis on action and pacing, relying on striking art direction and James L. Venable's evocative score.
