BOTTOM LINE Squeezes in a lot, and most of it works

Dust is a foxlike critter with a case of amnesia. With the help of a talking sword and a flying rodent, he begins to remember his role in a brutal civil war and when he sees the damage done, he tries to stop it. Dust's odyssey takes him through a series of two-dimensional landscapes that evoke the great Disney movies; the deer and bunnies frolicking in a forest, for example, are reminders of "Bambi."
