Entertainment Weekly by

Originally conceived as a videogame, Kaena is now, instead, a creamy-colored yet derivative sci-fi fantasy with a few rip-offs so blatant (''The Empire Strikes Back,'' ''Alien,'' etc.) that even kiddie fans not yet mentally agile enough to make sense of the loopy plot could pick them out.


The New York Times by Dave Kehr

Has no local cultural history behind it. Its secondhand imagery and ideas seem to have barely involved its makers; it definitely does not involve its audience.


L.A. Weekly by Jon Strickland

If Kaena's alternate universe isn't nearly as fully realized as "antastic Planet'," the 3-D imagery is often gloriously turbocharged.


TV Guide Magazine by Maitland McDonagh

Has the distinctive Heavy Metal magazine meets "The Neverending Story" (1984) vibe of Euro-science-fiction comics, complete with ponderous philosophical noodling, weirdly whimsical aliens and seriously creepy creature sex.
