I’ve been waiting to cover this movie for a long time. It was rotating through the film festival circuit and didn’t get released to Vimeo until mid to late 2018. Other than a few other BSFS products like Resistance, this was something I had my hopes up for. Did it disappoint? Did it live up to the hype?
I’m gonna go with kinda. The animation looked great and pretty consistent. The plot was a little hard to follow and the subtitles had a few errors- though I didn’t see as many as other reviewers did. The main characters are intense in battle and fun-loving in real-life (when the toxic air isn’t too bad).
I believe the main point of the story is to kill the slave within by freeing yourself from unjust shackles and fear. You probably won’t be able to do that literally like they did in a weird PUBG/LOL setting like this, but it’s still worth a try.
Now I’m curious about other Caribbean island and their animated products. What’s Montserrat putting out these days? Oh…it’s still recovering from that volcanic eruption I remembered. OK then. British Virgin Islands… what’re y'all rockin?
