Outstanding soundtrack by Plaid and solid direction by Arias. Not a huge fan of the art style, but the voice acting and plot were solid and the film had some truly awesome buildering/parkour chase sequences.
top notch film-making from a dynamic duo. a bit self-indulgent at times, but unbeatable soundtracks, casts, and photography can't be held back by masturbatory scripts and excessive send-ups. the guest trailers seal the legend and ensure that any cinemaphile worth two cents will import the R2 as (the) god(s) intended.
enjoyable, but certainly not a substitute for the princess bride or some other childhood allegory film. then again, the harsh imposition of reality and war was fantastic. soundtrack and pacing could use a bit of work, but del Toro knows his way around a camera. i'd love to see more original work (aka less Hellboy) from this fellow.
while murray's best moments barely scathe by the least inspired scenes of "fear and loathing"'s depp, the genuine and intense nature of murray displaces the often muddied hollywood nonsense that got thrown in. too bad the home video soundtrack is garbage, but the key ideas are still intact. a must-watch for thompson-philes and murray-men.
