Best part of story, including ending: The 80% of the whole movie is produced by computer graphics. Truly awesome to see. Hardly like a virtual reality. Truly a serious movie.

Best scene in story: When the Spirit moves across the rooftops and the City speaks in his ear as a lady.

Opinion about the main character: Our main character the Spirit gives up his life to protect the City. A genuine champion who doesn't fear death.
