While setting a milestone in the progress of digital filmmaking,Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrowresurrects a nostalgic fantasy world derived from a wide variety of vintage inspirations. It's a dazzling dream for anyone who appreciates the look and feel of golden-age sci-fi pulp magazines, drawing its unique, all-digital design from such diverse sources as Howard Hawks adventures, Fritz Lang'sMetropolis,Buck Rogers,Blackhawkcomics,The Third Man, cliffhanger serials, and the action-packed Indiana Jones franchise. Writer-director Kerry Conran's feature debut is also guaranteed to inspire digital dreamers everywhere, suggesting a paradigm shift in the way CGI-dominated movies are made. It's a giddy adventure for the young and young-at-heart, in which ace pilot "Sky Captain" Joe Sullivan (Jude Law) and intrepid reporter Polly Perkins (Gwyneth Paltrow) must save the world from a mad scientist whose vision of the future has tragic implications for all humankind. Angelina Jolie drops in for a glorified cameo, but it's the ultra-fortunate neophyte Conran who's the star here. His clever riff onThe Wizard of Ozis a marvel to behold, and the method of its creation is nothing less than revolutionary.--Jeff Shannon
Darkside reveiws Sky Captain and the world of Tommorow I drag my girl to the movies to see this flick. I hate Gwyneth Paltrow But I like Jude Law and this movies is suppose to be like Star Wars right? Wrong! You know what there is and will always be only one Star Wars ok. Shizt! First off this movie is shot through some flickin weird blurry assh filter. It's extremely irritating at first but you get use to it. The dialog is corny stupid 1920s bozo talk. But the technology is super science fiction advanced. What meathead thought of that dynamic dual? Some disconnected Hollywood privileged heb. Beware of the tin man from wizard of Oz. The main villains. WTF! NUDITY: Nothing, nada, zippo. (It is PG) You do get a couple cool airplane dogfights but stupid fat head Gwyneth Paltrow is in the plane in her idiot 1920s trench coat and hat. It ruins the scenes. Sky Captain Judd Law has one decent fight with a bug-eyed assassin but that's it. This movie is super corny and painful to watch. Understand I like a good science fiction flick. It doesn't have to be dripping with sex or have over the top bloodshed. (I love Star Wars.) But please skip this cheesy drip bag.
Too dumb for a Saturday morning cartoon I had hoped for a retro thriller. What I got was a retro yawner. Defying the laws of physics, storytelling and good sense, this movie was so astoundingly bad that I'm now at a loss for words on how to convey the shear... Nevermind. Trust me on this one.Skies of yester-marrow A fun look at the future through yesterdays eyes. though over acted and campy at time, this is a throughly enjoyable film.
