Space Legacy

Ham III is a circus performing chimp whose grandpa was the first chimp launched into space by NASA. At the circus Ham launches too, but he gets shot out of a cannon, not sent off into space. When he goes really high, he sees the moon, and that makes him realize that maybe he hasn’t lived up to his legacy, or his full potential.

Houston, We Have A…

Meanwhile, the space program has a bit of a problem because its deep space probe has disappeared into a worm hole. As a result, they decide to send a team of chimps in after it, and Ham gets to follow in the footsteps of his granddad because the people at the top think it would be good publicity.

Icing the Competition

The chimps, Ham, Titan, and Luna set off and land on a strange planet ruled by the ugly bully alien, Zartog. He has seized power by using the probe as a weapon, dipping his enemies into a deep freeze. Along with their new sidekick Kilowatt, the chimps have to find a way to defeat Zartog and get that probe back home safe. But can they even get home at all?

The Bottom Line

This movie is a pretty straight-forward kiddie flick, filled with a few more banana jokes or monkey puns than it probably needed, but some laugh-worthy gags can definitely be found. The animation is fine, but it’s not really fair to be released right after Wall●E, because it’s impossible to compete with Pixar on that level. All together it’s an entertaining enough way to spend an afternoon if you love space, chimps, or both.
