Battle for Terra


Animated picturesque and well-written tale of human invasion Discuss this article

This is the third recent movie, after Planet 51 and Avatar, to riff on the rights and wrongs of man’s attempted takeover of an alien planet. With Earth destroyed by who knows what, the last humans are on course for Terra and its population of affable aliens. Man prepares to invade – but their plans might be scuppered by one of their own number… Terra is gorgeously rendered. But it’s the thought-provoking storyline, the dialogue and the voices (especially that of Evan Rachel Wood) that leave a lasting impression.
