If you haven't watched the cartoon then your critical response should only count as half of a rating. This movie was really good and fun to watch. I am ready for a sequel. The acting was straight on with the animated series. I enjoyed the cartoon. The visuals were awesome, the acting was pretty good, and the story was good. The soundtrack was amazing. I didn't see it in a theater but would love to because I am sure it was even more amazing in 3-D.
