You may ask (and in many ways I want you to ask): but how could anyone ever accept or believe in a great love scene done in animation? Except that I think that question comes too late, because love scenes are exactly the kind of emotional crisis that the young audience now shrugs off. There is a way in which they have come to believe that action transcends all motivation, or the debate over it - let alone the feelings that might inspire it. It's a part of that new numb approach that is never impressed by acting, in that acting is usually an attempt to make you believe, to make you share the sincerity of characters and situations. Whereas maybe the new movie is just an opportunity to follow spectacular action - like driving in a simulated Grand Prix game (you may have a head-on collision, but you only lose points. Then you can start again, at full speed).
