This is one of those movies that nothing ever really happens, and yet in the quiet, you can feel Gilbert's emotions all that much better. Depp doesn't really do, say, or show emotion for most of this movie, but you can feel his teeth grinding. The entire Grape family is there to annoy Gilbert (maybe not Amy for some reason).
This isn't really my type of movie, but as an adult, I can appreciate it more than I did when it came out. Decent quirky character study.
PS: If you want to see machine guns and hackers, this is NOT your movie.
Not good, but not bad. An over-hashed Mad Max type movie that REALLY meandered all over the place before finally settling on a theme after he is captured by the humanoid. Characters kinda wander in to the film and then wander off or die. The ending is kinda ham-fisted with future indians and humanoids and aw geez not great.
I THINK you are supposed to root for Bishop in his quest for his daughter, but he comes off like a jackass, so - who are you supposed to root for?
Also the whole perpetual winter 60 below die in 4 days thing seems at odds with all the woods, animals, open water, slush and icicles, and future indians wandering around in animal skins.
I recall when this came out how mind blowing it was. The concept and the visuals are quite stunning, especially given this was done before the turn of the century. Possibly prophetic, it is interesting how the Agent describes the end of the 20th century as the pinnacle of human civilization - given that just a few years later the economy collapsed, the forever wars started, and all the Millennials can't find jobs. Not to mention all the AI stuff going on right now.
There are some problems with this film - the trench coats getting progressively longer and more Dracula-esque come to mind, some minor pacing issues (easily forgiven), and why so much martial arts and wirework? They can literally bend reality, and the best they can do is hit someone with their fists? But the REAL problem I have with this movie is the morality tale. You are being lied to - what you think is reality is not - so far so good. The answer? Go Columbine on the world? They aren't woke, so shoot them in the face? That is messed up.
intriguing intro, nice build up... but the ending went nowhere and just fell apart. It was a fine movie that got wrecked by its ending.
Boy Wonder sees his mom brutally murdered, so the cops let him use their computers and he takes steroids to exact revenge. Yeah the plot is recycled from lots of other vigilante movies, including the subplot with the caring cop that is hunting him down. That part has been done better elsewhere.
What is exceptional here is the tone and atmosphere. The almost excessively slow burn builds and builds until almost an overly quick ending. Definitely a stronger movie than you would guess from the trailer.
