  • CGI-animated in eye-popping 3-D colors, BATTLE FOR TERRA features the voices of Evan Rachel Wood, Luke Wilson, and Brian Cox in a saga of alien invasion and battle. The twist here is that the bad guys--the invaders of the cute and ingeniously imagined planet Terra--are from Earth. Survivors of a massive war, humans need to flood the planet with oxygen so it's inhabitable, which will mean wiping out all life thereon. The planet's population consists of cute little creatures that live inside giant vegetation, promote conformity, and initially see the destructive humans as intergalactic gods. Mala (Wood) is a LITTLE MERMAID-style rebel who questions authority and even rescues one of the enemy: a human pilot, Jim (Wilson). While their elders hem and haw, Mala and Jim bond and race against total destruction and the earthlings' fear-mongering military commander (Cox).

    Written and directed by Aristomenis Tsirbas--a sensitive, prize-winning French-Canadian animator in his feature-length debut--there's some poetic intelligence behind the peaceful messages, and the animation is stellar, with Terra's myriad creatures brilliantly and imaginatively brought to 3-D life. Even the most warmongering of parents should still dig the many sly references to vintage sci-fi films (the adobe decor recalls PLANET OF THE APES and the 1977 STAR WARS) and the dry underplaying of David Cross (MR. SHOW) as Jim's robot sidekick. Other voices include Danny Glover, James Garner, Dennis Quaid, and Rosanna Arquette.
