What an amazing movie.
Yay! Danny Elfman has a career outside of Tim Burton movies and it’s really good! Really impressive, dramatic, and powerful stuff.
Of course Hugh Jackman takes his shirt off at least once. It’s gotta be in his contracts or something.
Dakota Goyo is incredible (go baby Thor!).
It was really nice having a loser, lovable scoundrel as a hero again…Laura says it’s just like 40s noir films and that gets us all excited for the future.
If you place this film in the context that next year’s ÃÅber-fail (it’s like epic fail but in German) / box-office-bomb is based entirely on the game Battleship you can’t help but compare this film to Rock ‘Em, Sock ‘Em Robots. However it is my opinion that the comparison only works as an initial story idea: “Hey you know what was a great game? Rock ‘Em, Sock ‘Em Robots! Hey what if the robots were 8 feet tall?”
The Bing Arena and the XBox 720! BWAHAHAHA!!!
