It's like those Valentines Day, New Years Eve, Love Actually etc, except instead of seeing pointless stories about celebrities falling in love, you get to watch them die horribly. Which is to say, much more entertaining.
I fell asleep for the half hour where they realise they love each other. Sandra Bullock kinda looks like Angelica Houston from 'The Witches', but Ryan Reynolds once again makes a terrible romcom idea watchable.
Edward Norton obviously got this based on his performance in American History X, which was a long time, (and many many whiny performances) ago. He shouldn't be in this, and Liv Tyler shouldnt be in anything longer than a cosmetics ad.
I'll watch it again one day, and it will get better. But this stuff needs the Spike Jonze humor, and I think Charlie Kaufman spent too much time hanging out with Michel Gondry on the set of Science of Sleep, which isnt a good thing.
(Directors Cut). Great visuals, but Orlando Blooms character makes no sense at all, theres no explanation for how he turns into a military commander just because his father dies. And he preaches way too much in the third act.
