Consensus: Flatly animated and indifferently scripted, Fly Me To the Moon offers little for audiences not comprised of very young children.

It's clear that animators can now achieve levels of visual depth that were previously impossible.

And while it may not teach sprogs anything about insects - these ones have human eyes and four limbs - director Ben Stassen has made a fair fist of portraying the Apollo mission with some accuracy.

Fly Me to the Moon represents a leap forward in 3-D moviemaking. Let's hope the next completely 3-D animated movie picks a more exciting tale to tell.

As for the space stuff, well, George Lucas need not lose any sleep.

Fly Me to the Moon bills itself as the first animated feature created expressly for 3-D. Too bad it wasn't created expressly for, you know, pleasure or art.

The National (UAE)

It is a family story meant for younger viewers, and passes by without too much effort.

You can skip it in all three dimensions.

Michael Dequina

Without much else beyond its 3-D design going for it, this adventure grows old very fast.

Its not one of the worst animated movies ive seen but it was stupid
A.D. Villarreal
Abysmally dull "family" film not recommended for anyone over 5. And the 3D sucks too.
Leigh Ryan
It was cute enough to watch once, but mostly kind of boring.

While it is an interesting film, Fly Me to the Moon is too childish, flatly written and dull for adults and too tedious and slow for kids. Overall Rating: 16

Cute movie.

I made the mistake of watching this and I have to say it was nothing special. The story line is weird, the plot odd and the poo references I could have done… More
