The effects, stun you initially in the 3D IMAX version i saw. But once that shock is over, you are subjected to Jim Carrey. Now, I do not knwo what has happened to him, but it seems he just over acted this CGI thing to death. Likely the most heartless rendition of the classic story ever made. The film spent so little time of the Tiny Tim Character, that you forgot why you should care. Gary Oldman makes an appearance as Bob C and holds up the only emotional connection in the film. For a 3D film it sure fell flat.
Not nearly as dreadful as some in this RT community would have you believe. The acting is really top notch and while a bit scattered, not a poor film. Obviously plenty of care went into the film and the action sequences play well. Thw heart of the movie, the main character, are where the fault lies. Better casting and further development of the relationship of the mai characters would have solved the emotional detachment issue. Not that bad and certainly a heck of a lot more fun than that New Moon Drivel.
Fine film, made with a alot of care and emotional binding. It still seemed to really power it's way to the end and fell a little flat at the conclusion, which was unusual as the characters, script and sub plot seemed to line up perfectly. Bullock is great in the film and so is a surprising supporting cast. A firl that will have longevity on tv and video for many years to come.
Technical talent perhaps, but as a story teller, good lord, the man made the most predictable, heartless, faux emotional drivel possible. Literally laughed at the dialogue and the ending was pure hyperbol. I mean really, this is considered a revolutionary film. I could have cared less about the characters and was hoping that the bombast would return so that it would bludgeon the cheezball script. Nice light show. Crowd got up and left without any emotion whatsoever. Not a single cheer or clap. But it is brilliant, ya right! There is 10 times the emotion in a single episode of he original Star Trek, than this Drek. When will the critics actually start writing reviews to believe in. Did they look beyond the effects or not?
