Very much a product of its time... but in the best possible way. A humanizing and humorous story jam-packed with action. Great family fare. The animation had a great, and unique, aesthetic. The direction had a comic book flair that hasn't been seen in a superhero movie yet.
The Oscar buzz is warranted. The bar has been raised. And the gates have been opened for more animated hero flicks that will allow things to happen in the movies that just couldn't with live action (no matter how augmented with CGI it is). I can't wait for the sequel.
