Under the watchful eye of Tim Burton, director Shane Ackers race of zippered-burlap-bag men negotiate the familiar post-apocalyptic terrain rampaging robot monsters, trash everywhere in search of a secret cipher that unlocks humanitys legacy.... You get the picture. Ackers animated tale (screenplay by Pamela Pettler from Ackers story) looks like a short thats been expanded. Its visual intricacies barely register amid the general boredom of its humans-vs.-machines conflict. Theres nothing strange or eerie about any of this. Too many precise instructions and not nearly enough mystery. Featuring the voices of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, and Christopher Plummer (79 min.).
