Their weapons and suits all look great, the action is well paced BUT
(be aware that I have only seen the first 2 episodes)
the characters and plot are kiddy grade
The cgi falls apart in the 'normal scenes' (even childish at times) and the plot is forcefully inserted (for example in the first episode we see how Briareos and Deunan had their read more
