Battle for Terra

Forgettable and preachy are bad adjectives for a kids' cartoon. Mediocre computer animation from some Greek-Canadian filmmakers tries to breathe life into this fun-deprived parable about peaceful, tadpole-like aliens whose world is being invaded by genocidal, land-grabbing Earthlings. It's like going to a screening of Toy Story and getting a 90-minute lecture about the dangers of lead in children's playthings. 85 minutes PG.
