ZEDD'S OPINION:

I liked the first two movies but I got to admit this is the best of the original trilogy. It was suspenseful and well written and has one hell of a good cast, it's not perfect, it lags at times and there were minor character issues. But all and all stimulating and scary without losing substance. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I think I agree with Zedd here but the character issues got under my skin more then it did with Zedd and I think it wasn't quite as good as the first two, a little more disappointing then the first two movies. But still has some cool effects and some interest visuals, the story works and on the whole, pretty damn cool. 7 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (The story works.)
+ EFFECTS (The effects were cool.)
+ BRAIN DOME (That was cool.)
+ SUSPENSEFUL (You'll never know when Ricky will pop out.)
+ KILLER CAST (The cast does a great job with what they were given.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- CHARACTER ISSUES (There were some character issues that made VOLTRON think it was slightly less impressive then the first two.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on the first two movies, then this isn't your flick.)
