Special effects/design: 4/4 (Great)

Music: 3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 8/10 (Great, 4/4). Balls-out awesome, in a clever sort of way. It doesn't have much in the way of pathos, and, while the action is great, there isn't all that much of it. But as far as science fiction goes, it's absolutely wonderful - the best since Moon.
Objective Rating (Average): 3.5/4 (Very good)
