Your Opinions and Comments

6 / 10
A rather dumb and incredibly childish adaptation of the mid 80`s animated series.
While it does have a little bit of Disney charm in it, it lacks any qualities, scriptwise.
The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the CG animation is rather funny (yet not real looking).
The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. There is a frequent usage of the surrounds and the disk also contains 7 dubbed languages other than the English soundtrack.
The menus are all still and silent.
The disk has no extras at all.
Bottom line - rent it for the kids. Otherwise, forget it.
