Good movie. Great soundtrack. Iconic movie for it's time. Loose story ties but very creative and entertaining. I recommend if you like rock animation.

Not a bad animated film. But overall, just slightly above average. The soundtrack is great. Which is why it has outlived the movie that inspired it. Much like Last Action Hero (1993), an average at best film with a phenomenal soundtrack. The opening scene, which features a car being dropped from the space shuttle is pretty cool. I don't really have much else to say about this. The animation reminded me of watching cartoons from the 80's like GI Joe and He-Man.
