In The Mix — Video

Maetel is the princess of a dying planet. With the planet’s star about to burn out, the queen decides to have the citizens of her planet undergo a cyborg transformation process, which will allow them to survive in the extremely cold environment. However, Maetel and her sister Emeraldas disagree with their mother’s decision and decide that they must fight for the freedom of everyone on the planet. Unfortunately, the film is a little uneven. The voice acting is very bad and the animation quality should have been a little better. However, the conflict between the sisters and their mother brings up some very interesting issues about the “humanity” of people who transform themselves into cyborgs. This conflict and the issues that arise from it are interesting enough to make up for most of Maetel Legend's flaws. Recommended for any fan of good, intelligent sci-fi.
