Last night I watched “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow“.
Now, I have to say that I totally pre-judged this movie. I saw the trailer and I didn’t like it, and I rented the movie sure that it would be a bad boring movie and a waste of money. The only reason I rented it is to see how bad Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie could get 😛
But, I have to admit it turned out better than I thought, not that much better, but still better.
The movie takes another direction, visually speaking, than the rest of the movies coming out these days. It’s very 1930’s Art Deco with bits of Neo-Futurism and uses a mostly digital backdrop.
I liked the visual effects and work put into this movie although I’m not a big fan of the 1930’s feel.
It’s a Sci-Fi Adventure movie and the story starts after New York City receives a series of attacks from giant flying robots. A reporter teams up with a pilot in search of their origin, as well as the reason for the disappearances of famous scientists around the world.
All in all, I think it’s an ok movie. The kind I’d only see once.
Anyway, if you’re into sci-fi adventure movies that feel like they’re from the 1930’s, then this should be your cup of tea.
I give it a score of: 5/10.
