Filled with style with a capital S, Sky Captain is a joyous combo of rollicking adventure, film noir and all the gee-whizzery of high-tech innovation.

This debut feature by Kerry Conran is a triumph not only for its technical mastery but for its good taste.

It's the story that gets in the wayof this magic show, coasting along a much more awkward path that finally hardly seems to matter.

Director Kerry Conran hasn't just mimicked his favorite serials and comic books. He's written a love letter to the full scope of 1930s and '40s films by basically making one.

Conran is ... in touch with his inner 10-year-old. His feature-length debut seems like it has been downloaded directly from a kid's wildest dreams.
