Staff Review

david reino :
A seldom-acknowledged truth about the nature of Lego is examined in this short film by PdoubleyouC. The concept is creative,
and the maker has done a very nice job in conveying the atmosphere of an airport, thanks to a large set and ambient sound
effects that clearly distinguish the setting as a bustling airport terminal. The animation is decent, aside from the occasional
set bump or light flicker, which do not detract enough from the film's overall enjoyment to be a major concern. Do not hesitate
to watch this film if you are in the mood for a light short that pokes fun at the levels of "realism" often attempted with the Lego medium.
