"I bought this video grouped with "The Call" (another awful video). I am not impressed. These are the worst animation videos I have ever seen and am baffled as to how they made it on dvd. This one is better than "The Call" but I still wish I had not bought it. I feel fooled by the cover art and the other customer reviews."
Original and fresh

"This is one of the better CG videos out there. The grafix were fresh and original. However the music could have been better. My suggestion would be to play something from your own selection when watching this DVD. Having said that, I feel this DVD is a good buy for any fan of CG video."

"I must admit I bought Caught Between Worlds because of the cover with the gorilla amongst the man-made "stuff"...but have since completed the Trilogy with The Call and Dementional Connections. This Trilogy does not deserve the harsh criticism from some of the reviewers. Granted, the music is not a favorite, but it "goes" with the animation, which I think is very good because, with all it's complexities, it flows well.
I'm interested in art, animation and computer graphics. And am disappointed in the computer industry's desire (and the sheep mentality) to turn the internet into a smaller TV-Land/Photo-Op media. Art is unique and individual - Caught Between Worlds is good art, probably the "prettiest" of the 3. The Call is difficult (a man may not think so), but worth the price for the title chapter, alone. Do buy because you will be given a "visual" experience with "more" in each viewing...and...it's thought provoking."
Missed potential and lame music

"There is some really great computer animation from this era, a.k.a some of the Mind's Eye series and the like. But this one was, basically, a bore.
First, the music was completely uninteresting and showed little or no connection to the animation. It sounded like half-baked baroque or classical done on a good-quality Casio.
I could live with that, though, if the animation really grabbed me. Or, even better, if they seemed to have anything to do with each other. But the animation was, as my title implies, a tease. There were many, many brief moments were something truly interesting appeared only to be immediately abandoned for yet another kaleidoscope sequence. There was a lot of those. No, way too many of those. And I'm sorry, but I can pick one up at the dollar store if I want to see that. Also, if you hate having things flashed at you, there were a lot of those annoying instances where they transition from one image to the next with a bright flash. Very obnoxious.
For really good animation and music, in favor of this I'd highly recomment Televoid (music by a mix of Queensryche and Kansas members) and The Gate to the Mind's Eye (Thomas Dolby). Both these have much more interesting animation and really great music. As for this, if you already have any 90's animation that you really like, you'll be missing absolutely nothing by skipping this one."
