A.O. Scott
The New York Times
The lip movements of the animated figures are slightly slow, so you feel as if you're watching a badly dubbed Japanese creature feature from the 1960's. The dialogue is almost as stilted, and after a while you drift into that half-dream state that inert movies can create. Full Review

Tends to be lugubrious. Full Review
Ed Epstein
Wall Street Journal
Although packaged as a movie, is in reality a clever 106-minute promo for Sony's PlayStation II games. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Despite its conceptual shortfall, is worth seeing, if only to update yourself on what can emerge from a keyboard these days. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
The film's plot gets so convoluted no nongamer older than 14 will be able to follow it all. Full Review
