This movie is suspensful, the effects are good and the acting is good i guess. But the ending is SHIT. The movie keeps you on the edge of your seat, and all you want is a good ending that explains everything. THIS DOESN'T. By the time the movie ended, i was so angry at how many questions were left unanswered, like: "WHO THE HELL ARE THOSE ALIENS IN BLACK CLOTHING AND WHY THE HELL DO THEY HAVE HUGE BALL-SHAPED SPACESHIPS THAT BRING PEOPLE TO HEAVEN?" You'd be better off watching the first 1h 30mins and then walk out of the theatre cause the ending does not answer your questions.
THIS MOVIE IS HORRIBLE. There are so many plotholes the size of Canada and the villian's costume is so bad it's funny. The story is actually understandable and this would have been a good movie, if it weren't for the fact that it was executed SO DAMNED BADLY. And by the way, HOW THE HECK ARE THE 2 MAIN CHARACTERS CONSIDERED TWINS? I don't know, maybe i wasn't paying much attention to the movie because i was too busy laughing at the plotholes, or maybe it's because THEY DON'T LOOK EVEN THE TINIEST BIT ALIKE. I ONLY KNEW THAT THEY WERE 'TWINS' WHEN I SAW THE SYNOPSIS IN THIS WEBSITE! There were only 3 things i liked about this movie: 1, The dog (who sounds supiciously like Wheatley from the Portal franchise), Cecil Wilson (The boy. At least his ACTING is generally good enough for me), and finally Jessica Alba (because, well, she's hot).
Good movie. Has Jack Black in it, so it comes as no surprise. Only 4 complaints....
1) If going into the Bermuda Triangle gets you sucked into a whirlpool which brings you to Lilliput, what happened to other boats or planes(The whirlpool was friggin huge enough to reach the sky) that went into the Bermuda Triangle in the past? The Lilliputians or whatever you call them gave no sign that they've seen a "giant" before, dead OR alive.
2) Some awkward moments in the movie that left me in my seat saying, "Er... Okay..."
3) At the end, Jack sings a song, whose title i have no idea is what, which somehow solves the rivalry between the King of Lilliput and his enemy. Er... Okay...
4) WTF THERE'S A RACE OF HUMANS EVEN BIGGER THAN NORMAL HUMAN BEINGS BY ABOUT 100 TIMES!!
But if you manage to look over these faults the movie is STILL enjoyable for kids and adults i guess.
The greatest "A Christmas Carol" movie i had ever seen. The graphics are AMAZING, although I thought that Marley, Scrooge's deceased friend, could have been improved. Although yes, there are some "frightening scenes" like when the Ghost of Christmas Present reveals the 2 whatevers of Man or something.
My only complaint is that sometimes i could barely understand what they are talking about, causing me to rewind the scene again just to hear what they said.
Overall, this movie is definately better in 3D, but in 2D, it's still a masterpiece. People say that the movie may scare kids, but what do you expect? I don't think that you can make the The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come a cheerful guy who likes candy and sleepovers.
The movie is horrible. An EXTREME amount of padding. The only good part is just the beginning. And you know how long it took Astro Boy to find out he has weapons?? AT THE END OF THE MOVIE. Plus the voice acting by Freddie Highmore(Astro Boy) isn't that good. Oh, and they got 2 MORE FAMOUS PEOPLE IN THIS MOVIE. NICOLAS CAGE AND TIMON FROM THE LION KING. JUST GREAT. GHOST RIDER AND TIMON IN THE SAME MOVIE. A way better plot was to have Astro Boy fight evil and stuff and then have his power core stolen, and with the help of an emergency power core, have Astro find the person who stole it before the emergency power core runs out, as it has a time limit. THERE. 10X BETTER THAN THIS PLOT.
I have to admit that this is by far the funniest movie i have seen this year so far. What i found somewhat hilarious about the movie was that it all went downhill thanks to a husband trying to show his wife a good time in the city. It had great humor and quite an interesting storyline. A definate must see. Oh yeah, not to spoil anything, but i found the "sex machine" thing really HILARIOUS.
I managed to get a hold of this movie disk thanks to my father's friend. I did not even want to watch this movie at first basically i knew it was filled with blood and it is NC16. But of course, my brother forced me to watch it. At the beggining of the movie, i just basically covered my ears and eyes. But after seeing the always popular "This is Sparta!" thing, I decided to watch it WITHOUT covering my ears or eyes. It was really good. Just about everything is good. Watch it if you can. It will be worth your time.
