10.22.2009 - Thanks to SM Cinema and Azrael for the exclusive invite on the red carpet premier of Battle for Terra. The film is shown on 3D at the SM Digital Cinema at SM North Edsa.

About The Movie

Battle for Terra, originally screened as Terra, is a 2007 computer animated science fiction film, based on the short film conceived as a dramatic live action film with photoreal CGI short film, about a peaceful alien planet which faces destruction from colonization by the displaced remainder of the human race.

The film was directed by Aristomenis Tsirbas, and features the voices of Brian Cox, Luke Wilson, and David Cross among others. It premiered on September 8, 2007 at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was widely released in the United States on May 1, 2009.

The film was originally shot in 2D but was made so that a second camera could be added to the film.

After the film was shown at festivals and distributors showed an interest in it a small team was hired to render the entire film again from the perspective of the second camera for a true 3D effect.

It won the Grand Prize for Best Animated Feature at the 2008 Ottawa International Animation Festival.


When the peaceful inhabitants of the beautiful planet Terra come under attack from the last surviving members of humanity adrift in an aging spaceship, the stage is set for an all-out war between the two races for control of the planet. But will an unlikely friendship between a rebellious young Terrian (voiced by Evan Rachel Wood) and an injured human pilot (Luke Wilson) somehow convince their leaders that war is not the answer?

Living in perfect harmony in gravity-defying cities above the clouds, the inhabitants of the planet Terra are complete strangers to war. So when Terra is invaded by human beings fleeing a civil war and environmental catastrophe, many of the Terrians at first welcome the invaders as gods. Only the feisty young Mala (Evan Rachel Wood) fights back, luring one of the invading spacecrafts to destruction after her father is abducted, then rescuing its pilot—a humannamed Jim (Luke Wilson).

In return for saving his life, Jim promises to help Mala find her father, taking her on a perilous journey to the Ark—the humans’ aging mother ship. Along the way, Mala and Jim learn that their people really aren’t so different from one another. But with the Earthforce army poised to invade Terra and render it uninhabitable for Terrians, Mala and Jim must find a way to help the two races coexist—before it’s too late.

The Verdict

The story was told straight forward without any hang overs. No loop holes or in-between hang ups. Its movie for the general audience and its a great treat for the family to see this wearing the 3D glasses. Plus breat taking graphics that would be mistaken for a live action film.

I give this four out of five stars. Kids would enjoy seeing this as I see the kids at heart where very serious about watching every scene. Now the question kids will look forward to if they will have the toys. But serious this film is a good one to watch and enjoy!
