This movie might have been good in better hands. The premise just doesn't pass the smell test.
While Inception, which also had a weak premise, had a stellar cast, excellent writing, clever plot twists and exceptionally good direction, this had somewhat the opposite. The leads were a bit weak in this one, although they can't be blamed alot of the time. They had good chemistry, but in service to the story, dialogue and sub par supporting cast, they were swimming upstream. But as I always say, see it yourself, and make your own judgment. I felt bored and was tempted to walk out on the movie on my first bathroom break.

This is a unique movie in the fact that it looks at contagious disease not only from the human toll,
but from the work that has to go into inventing the cure, manufacturing, distribution and people who have alternative views of what is happening (conspiracy theorists, etc.). While not always having you on the edge of your seat, I think it's mostly correct in how it portrays how events would unfold. The world wouldn't end, but the way we would have to act would change.
I liked this movie in a lot of ways. You have to have good actors for a movie that has very little
in the way of a script. All the actors are well cast, the action is great, the story keeps you hanging on and the soundtrack is terrific. One word of caution, when this movie gets violent, it gets really violent. I say see it.
Even with 3-D, this movie lacks a certain something. I'm not sure there is enough "there" there to
give gravitas to what you are seeing. There are a lot of amazing facts, but I don't know if I caught them being put into context of other culture's artistic contributions. The drawings themselves are amazing and would be considered great art in any generation. That they are over 30,000 years old is incredible, and hard to deny. That they were so well preserved is a miracle, and that they were found at all is a real blessing for archeologists. Thank God for the geeks who go around hills feeling for draughts coming up from holes in the sides of hills. I say see it, but temper your excitement. Also, 3-D was totally unnecessary. I don't really think it brought anything special to the movie, but please be the judge.
I'm not sure why this is such an iconic book. I never read it, but it certainly is a fantasy. Some
parts are realistic, some are not. The acting is wooden. The dialogue is from the 1930's and could've stood some updating. Really, I was generally offended by the very end of the movie. I almost felt like I was being fed a subtle message by the commies or nazi's. I'm actually going to see parts 2 and 3, because I want to see how they can pull anything out of this that will sound anything less than a communist manifesto or blathering right wing propaganda.
The most enjoyable part of my trip to the movies was the IMAX experience. Every movie should be
IMAX. I'd have to say this movie was a disappointment. I was really looking forward to it after "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince", which I thought was the best Harry Potter so far. I thought that the weakest part of the movie was Harry, Hermione and Ron. They did things that made no sense, seemed emotional for no reason and just sat around alot being morose. Emma Watson's main acting contribution was to put her head on someone's shoulder. You go the impression after a while that if someone had opened a can of tuna, she'd be right there for them, putting her head on their shoulders. Still, I say "go" because you aren't going to understand some of the next movie without it. I think the last two should've been one movie. Too bad they decided to go for the money over the art.
This movie is a good vampire movie, but an even better movie about growing up at 12. It isn't quite
as good as the foreign version, and surprisingly leaves out some of it's better scenes. It also compresses timeframes of some of the other story lines, only showing you the "punchier" moments, without setting the scene up fully.
There are some things this movie does better. The moments when the vampire girl, Abby, attacks as a vampire, are very gripping. I think the male lead in this movie is better.
Chloe Moretz does a creditable job with this part, though she lacks the dark look that helped the other character. Also, Moretz seems in every role she plays to be older than her years. She has the uncanny ability to project a sense of maturity that her peers don't. That works against her in this film, while it worked wildly in her favor in "Kick ***".
I say see this , especially if you have not seen "Let the right one in". If you have, you may still want to to compare them.
