Psst! - Confidentially speaking (from an adult's perspective) - "Flatland" (a 35-minute, CGI, geometry lesson for the kiddies) was just Hollywood, once again, frantically scrambling to come up with something/anything truly original and interesting to dazzle and entertain, and, then, falling "flat" on its (*bleep*bleep*) face one more time.

Yes. I will admit that, visually, "Flatland" had some "OK" moments - But, for the most part, its story contained way too much mean-mindedness and the whole scenario got pretty tired by repeatedly driving home the point about the existence of the 3rd dimension.

I was really hoping that "Flatland" was going to be one helluva total roller-coaster ride of non-stop animation wizardry, but, instead, it was, pretty much, just the same/old, same/old from start to finish.

The first time I watched this movie was in my Algebra 2 class since there's a geometry class after us. From the movie, I found out Flatland was a book. I read the book a few months later. The movie is based off the book, but a few things are left unexplained or are changed. If you have a child, this movie would be a pretty good learning experience. If you are an adult and are not going to associate this with kids, I recommend the book. It includes everything unexplained in the movie and has many appendixes for references.

I didn't realize this was a childrens film when I took it out, but I've always been interested in the book it was based on since high school math, and articles in the Scientific American during the early 80s. It's just over a half hour too so the points are made fairly quickly without wasting time. The extra feature with the Math Professor and the animations of 4th dimension projections into our 3d space were great.
