Review

Dennys Herman’s short animation delivers a thrilling and immersive experience that transports viewers into the captivating world of Gundam-style anime. The film wastes no time in plunging us into a fleeting narrative centered around a tense battle between two formidable robots in space.

The animation and sound design in this short film are truly out of this world, showcasing tremendous craftsmanship. The visuals are dynamic and stylish, capturing the fast-paced action with precision. Every movement and strike feels impactful, and the attention to detail in the animation is commendable.

The film is a loving homage to Gundam anime, with clear influences from the genre apparent throughout. The 80s vibe is aptly supported by the accompanying soundtrack, which enhances the overall experience and further immerses viewers in the world created by Herman.

Although the narrative is brief, it manages to convey captivating action that leaves a lasting impact. The battles between the robots are intense and exciting, maintaining a consistent level of engagement throughout the film’s duration. It’s clear that there is potential for further expansion and exploration of the narrative, which would be welcomed by viewers seeking more depth and backstory.

In conclusion, Dennys Herman’s short animation is a visually stunning and action-packed tribute to Gundam-style anime. With impeccable animation, impressive sound design, and a fitting soundtrack, the film captures the essence of the genre and immerses viewers in an exhilarating world.
