Genre: Action / Drama / Comedy
I would just like to say that although this movie isn't new, I felt that it should have a review on the see and say. For those of you who have not seen it, it certainly is enjoyable.
|Visual||8.0||The scenery in this movie is very nice, it takes place in Paris, France for the beginning portion, and various parts of Japan, like Tokyo and Kyoto.|
|Audio||8.0|| The music fits, it is a more modern version of tradition sounding japanese sounds. The music comes in at the right time and isn't overpowering. If a soundtrack existed, i'd buy it. |
|Plot||7.0|| The plot is straight forward with no surprises, but the way that the outcome is reached is pretty good. For an action-comedy, the plot is pretty standard, but it has its moments. |
|Char. Dev.||7.0|| You see a lot of change in Hubert (Jean Reno) during the movie, he moves on and grows as a character. Yumi (Ryoko Hirosue) also develops as a character changing her mind a lot.|
|Theme||6.0|| Very anime-esque, it has a lot of funny parts with the actors doing some strange things, it also has some unbelievable action sequences, fight scenes that pack a powerful punch. Overall it is good.|
|Fun||9.0|| The movie itself is fun to watch. A lot of the dialogue in the scenes is funny as well as the action itself. It is a very light sided action movie, it isn't grim or very serious. Hubert is definately funny and fun to watch. Momo is the comic relief, seeking to relive the old adventure days back when Hubert was originally in japan etc.|
|Overall||8.0|| I think this movie is definately worth owning, i've scene it a bunch of times and it's still funny when I watch it. The movie itself is originally in French Dialogue, but has English Dubbing, that in itself is funny. |

Movie Review: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
I would like to start by saying that this is much better than the reviews give it credit for. They blast it for a number of reasons, one main one being lack of character development. The assumption for this movie is that you KNOW the characters from reading the Classic
novels that they appear in. That being said...
|Visual||8.0||The scenery in the movie is gorgeous, the locations they chose to shoot at were well selected. The only problem is that every scene is dark. Everything either takes place at night or in bad weather, save for when they spend time in Africa (briefly for about 15 mins total). |
|Audio||6.0|| Not much in the way of music, however the sound effects for the action scenes were lifelike. |
|Plot||7.5|| A good plot with a number of twists when you think about it. I walked away pleasantly surprised that it wasn't just action. |
|Char. Dev.||5.0|| There is some character development, especially surrounding Connery's character, as well as Dr. Jeckyl/Mr. Hyde. However outside of that it is expected that you have read the novels containing these characters. |
|Theme||6.0|| Based off of a comic book, so think comic book action and story line. Nothing innovative but its not bad at all.|
|Fun||9.0|| I found the characters to be fun, even cool. The action in most scenes is short enough to be an enjoyable rush. It is hard to not like any of the characters, even the bad ones. They all have a certain charm.|
|Overall||8.0|| Personally I think it's worth seeing once in the theater... but don't feel too badly if you do not see it. Definitely worth owning on dvd. |

Movie Example: Matrix Reloaded
Sure, this review is coming weeks after the movie initially came out.
Odds are, I'm not going to see too many movies in the first week, nor will I see all movies that come out. People can request a movie to be posted so they can review, even if I haven't seen it, and I will start a post for it. (best ways are to contact me over AIM or through email)( the Matrix: ReloadedCollapse )
Current Mood: still sleeping?
