The movie is a visual masterpiece without straying far from its original designs, adding vibrant colors, action packed scenes, and all hand drawn animation.

You end up rooting for Dib throughout his whole ordeal in addition to wondering what Zim has in store, making for two highly fascinating narratives.

Overall, Invader Zim: Enter The Florpus is immensely entertaining with great character designs and great animation even if the film didn't do a lot to impress me.

Making either the characters (particularly facial expressions) or the backdrop a bit bland to look at sometimes.

Prolonged exposure to a single storyline however, is unbearable.

A perfect and visually stunning reboot .

Not as intelligent as the series, has mundane, overly repetitive scenes.

Mind blowing in HD .

The plot was all over the place, the pacing was either seizure-inducing fast or agonizingly slow, and most of the humor was entirely too forced.

Characters would declare their relationships, personalities and motives almost instantly, essentially turning the introductory fifteen minutes into a rushed segment of pointless information, especially for fans such as myself.

Definitely worth watching!

The movie was great, entertaining and hilarious.

Without nailing down the actual story beats, as that would give away a lot of spoilers, the general flow of the story itself is so unpredictable and scattered that you couldn't even list one specific plot twist.

This movie was heavily enjoyable from beginning to end, and I really hope we get more of Invader Zim from it.

Also I feel many kids who will probably watch this haven't seen the series which is fine but I think they would be completely lost because I had my little sister watch this and she was literally bored after the first act like I mentioned earlier.

Invader Zim has a very particular style of humour that becomes a little formulaic by the time you get to the end of the movie, so a lot of the jokes in the latter half of the movie start to feel a little predictable.

It was terrible and so dissaponitng and by the end I was getting ready to just turn it off, but it ended, and on a flat, boring note to boot.

But the story line was a little hard to follow.

Yes, it was my life, and seeing the show cancelled all those years ago left a dark pit within my soul (which is already pretty empty).

All in all, I really enjoyed it and thought it was a great movie for the series.

There are some positives: the animation is nice, the scenes with the Tallest were great and Zim enacting his plan was enjoyable.

Halfway through I found myself getting pretty bored.

Aside from the art, I enjoyed the movie and found it as entertaining as the show.

But hey there still a lot of spectacle, action and humor to be enjoyable, this movie still comes recommended.
