THE PLOT:

The Earth is endangered from a twisted force from the planet Venus, thousands are dead and Earth's only hope is a new starship called the Gohten. If the enemy doesn't destroy them first.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

It's the basic alien invasion theme which has been done a dozen or times. But when it's done well, it works and it works here. The space battles are cool. The story and creature effects work. Wish there were more monsters but what's perfect? 8 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd again, this movie has plenty of fun to go around and plenty of drama and action. It's like a live action anime in someways. So I also give it 8 STARS.
