The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Reviews
Galaxy succeeds in nearly every necessary way. The whole plot, in its entirety, is an extremely clever and eternal blend of ambiguity and razor sharp comedic timing, with a revering and long lasting journey across the cosmos all told from the eyes of a director who can also create visually striking images that help push the story forward.
If anything, though, the cast is to blame for the extremely well laid-out tone among the film. The chemistry and interactions between each and every actor/actress make it seem like what's going on in this far forsaken tale is actually normal.
'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' is not only clever from a comedic standpoint, but succeeds also in its visual story-telling of extreme abnormalities that make this seemingly goofy film good and pure refreshing fun.
Following Earth's destruction, Arthur finds himself travelling through space with his odd friend, a girl he recently met and a fugitive space president.
This movie has plenty of random fun and laughs while we journey through a strange and different universe on the run from the unpoetic and red-tape obsessive Vogon's.
There's plenty to enjoy, though I have to admit I'm not sure how it relates or whether it respects the original TV series or book.
