NEXT GEN ( Video Release Canadian-American-Chinese 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Next Gen,
a computer animated Chinese/Canadian/American collaboration, 
doesn’t live up to its trailer partly because it gets lost in its own ‘flash and dash’ without paying attention to its theme. The movie fades in and out of focus and that lack of continuity causes a distinct loss of quality in its story telling.

Thank you to Director Kevin R. Adams and Joe Ksander for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Olivia Hao, Ounan Hong, Face Hu, and Phyllis Laing for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Project 77 (voice of John Krasinski), Mai (voice of Charlyne Yi), Justin Pin/Ares (voice of Jason Sudeikis), Momo (voice of Michael Peña), Dr. Tanner Rice/Q-Bots (voice of David Cross), Molly (voice of Constance Wu), Greenwood (voice of Kiana Ledé), and Ani (voice of Anna Akana).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s a large story that comes off as a small story. The script’s potential is not realized. Listen for John Krazinski’s voice in the movie.
