This was just ok. Keanu Reeves once again plays a sci fi/fantasy character that doesn't require much acting. A bit of an environmental message which I thought was a bit patronising. It fell flat at... Read more the end. Not sure I would bother adding it to my list to hire.
I was actually surprised by how I much I enjoyed this film. It was one of those big budget sci-fi films that is meant to be mass entertainment to it but really has a bit more going on than your average popcorn flick.
The visual and sound effects are very good. Keanu Reeves plays an excellent, robotic alien. But that's about it. The story (told here, in this remake) is simply awful and unconvincing. And what role... Read more exactly does the kid play, other than to fricking annoy in every, single, scene.
Great role for Reeves in that he got to play an emotionless alien....which is the only acting he can do.
Interesting and the special affects are very affective but it still not up to the standard of the original film which was possibly more humanized.
Credible actors made it easy to believe the unbelievable. Enjoyable "brink of disaster" type of plot, where extreme 'green' ideal may well be delivered. The somewhat format plot, where the 'stuffed... Read more shirts' fail to listen to young, intelligent reason, and everyone is stressed out trying to cope. The underlying relationship plots were well handled. It came together well and showed Keuno Reeves in a much more serious light than usual.
Note: I think the idea that I may have a supurfluous coating of ectoplasm may account for my excess weight!
Loved this one, how the main actor managed to keep a straight face all of the time beats me. Stunning actor, stunning effects.
Get the original 1950's version. At least the characters are believable. Is Keanu Reeves the most wooden actor EVER?!
An interesting concept I guess. Keanu Reeves gives a good performance and one would expect nothing less. The story was quite interesting but I felt the movie itself was a little slow ... not one I would watch again or recommend.
I enjoyed this movie, but not as much as I could have. The special effects are pretty impressive and the storyline is good (a classic in fact). I think perhaps the chemistry just wasn't quite there... Read more between the leads (Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly) and the ending leaves you feeling a bit...flat, like something was left on the editting room floor accidentally.
All in all, quite good, but not up there with the 'future-classic' movies.
