As a prequel, those of us who may be new to BoBoiBoy will enjoy this animation. How come? This animation unexpectedly appears solid in various aspects, especially in terms of its very narrative mature, not too childish, but still able to insert humor and excitement in various scenes. Lots of spectators screening which is dominated by children can even laugh while enjoying a film whose duration reaches 2 hours. The duration is relatively long for an animated children’s film, but it is not boring at all and can even entertain adult audiences who are completely blind to this franchise. Even though it has Malay as the language of instruction, however subtitles Indonesian is also included for our audience.

Even if we compare it with the latest Indonesian animated films that have recently appeared on the big screen, Mechamato Movie far superior and it feels like our animation is still far behind from neighboring countries. Of course this is very unfortunate.
