Likely to delight animation aficionados more than children or their parents, The Powerpuff Girls Movie – in which the title superheroines make an ultra-frenetic leap to the big screen from their popular Cartoon Network series – is a shade too dark for youngsters and a touch too juvenile for older Puffsters. That said, the girl-power message is as strong and entertaining as ever (though power here translates to the ability to flatten a city). But the story – focusing on the bug-eyed girls’ bumpy beginnings – unfolds with the sort of hyperkinetic geometry only a ”Tron” fan can fully appreciate.
