* {{Irony}}: The whole fact that [[Film/{{Avatar}} the most successful movie of all time]] and what used to be the least successful have such similar plots.

As an epic love-in-a-time-of-war story set on another world and driven by an auteur's singular, risky vision, it's sort of like a Bizarro-world ''Film/{{Avatar}}''. The filmmakers certainly thought so, and [[http://www.cinematical.com/2009/08/27/delgo-creators-mull-avatar-lawsuit/ actually considered suing Fox and Cameron]] after seeing ''Avatar's'' first trailer. Not much seems to have come from that.

* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Sedessa's weird bald gryphon-thing. Completely apropos of nothing, right in the middle of dramatically gloating before the defeated king, is a "comedy" scene where it urinates on the king in explicitly doglike fashion.

* ConstructedWorld: It's clearly a labor of love.

* NoFlowInCGI: The characters have pointy hair, or no hair at all, and mostly wear pants. Work began in 1999, and it was released in 2008, and this is the result.

By then CGI had the swing of things for years. Again, it was released in 2008, the same year that Kung Fu Panda was released, and that had CGI at least twenty times better than what is seen here.



* SceneryPorn: The biggest praise the film tends to get is the imaginative world and beautiful environments. A couple of the monsters and bits of fantasy tech are cool, too.

* MeaningfulEcho: "You're on your own, kid." Repeated, with a flashback, for the [[ViewersAreMorons slower members of the audience]].

* BloodlessCarnage: All over the place. Most weapons are blunt, most hits scored are with "blasting" powers, and stabbings or impalings occur just off screen. You have to wonder why they gave characters sharp weapons at all.And when one character gets stabbed and pulls out the knife/arrow/whatever it was, it is pretty darn clean.

* TheGoodKing: King Zahn wishes to negotiate with the Lochni instead of declaring war with them after they decide that they can't allow them to have more space. Unfortunately, Sedessa has other plans.



* PositiveDiscrimination: Played with. The climactic battle is sparked when King Zahn declares war on the Lokni, believing them to have his daughter. The Lokni, meanwhile, are clearly portrayed as fighting out of concern for their people. ''Played with'', mind you, because an earlier scene shows Lokni villagers starting a small riot against Nohrin villagers.
