Production and reception
Because of the special effects, the film was shot in videotape format, but was later expanded to 35mm in the United States, although there are legal restrictions on showing the material outside Brazil.
The Cinema Snob, a sister website of the better known The Nostalgia Critic, did a review of the film, referring to it as Brazilian Star Wars. He criticized the movie, considering it not funny, too long due to too many slow motion scenes and finding the main characters annoying, and poor special effects.
