The Powerpuff Girls Movie

Genre: Animation, Kids and Family; Starring: Cathy Cavadini, Elizabeth Daily, Tara Strong; Director: Craig McCracken; Author: Charlie Bean, Lauren Faust; Release Date Wide: 07/03/2002; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 82; MPAA Rating: PG; Distributor: Warner Bros.

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.
