That is Finland in 2020?! What happened to mercy?
With some clever use of live-action, Tuskavisio has managed to produce a 70-minute brickfilm!
A piece of art non-Lego desert environment and magnificent brickbuilding makes this high-quality production worth praising. Problems in camera focusing are annoying, though.
Stop-motion wise there isn`t all that much to see. Atleast the camera work keeps things moving when the minifigs just stand still. There are some live movements for the figs, too. The race scenes benefit from live-action with some of the most hilarious, realistic crashes.
Not willing to spoil the movie, I`ll just say that there are some problems with the pace; some parts of it are less enjoyable, less smooth. The dialogue is interesting throughout, though.
This film puts plastic bricks to good use. Some race-film cliches and Mad Max references also make it an experience worth checking out.
