  1. lofisofi's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    i like this movie visually, it is a unique dieselpunk film, but it's pretty hollow

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    The idea is excellent: a kind of 1930s serial with over-the-top silent movie / Fritz Lang-style expressionism, robots, aerial battle sequences and a fun atmospheric story. The set design and decor is beautiful and Laurence Oliver's "from the dead" cameo as a kind of "man behind the curtain" is inspired, but the execution is flat and lifeless as if it was in-cut sequences for a computer game that never was produced.

  4. runfromfire's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    It's like a Guy Maddin flick on steroids... and crack. It's a completely forgettable mess with a few pretty steampunky bits.

  5. Paul Relf's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    Dodgy, likeable, fun, ridiculous. Watch once and destroy.

  7. burning_chrome's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    one star goes for punching the titular self–righteous male lead in the face and thus deconstructing the annoyingly all too pervasive superhero myth. also, some rather cool steampunkish moments!

  8. Adrock's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    I need to see it again, but I remember liking this semi-forgotten flick. It reminded me a bit of the retro-future of The Rocketeer or Captain American. I also remember thinking it's what Guy Maddin might come up with if he had a big budget and used a ton of CGI.

  9. Sophia Park's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    i mean, at least it's fun.

  10. HenriqueA's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    I used to hate this movie with passion. Now I think it is really entertaining, some cool ideas. But still, not a classic.

  11. just's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    This movie is visually seducing as much as it is hollow and pointless in the plot. There's isn't even something in the story blatantly wrong or unbereable. Is just hollow. It's almost a good thing so you dont' get distracted from the beautiful images. Ultimately I've been watching it a couple of times with audio off and some atmospheric post rock music in the background. Works great :)

  12. mfg's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    The neo-noir is fantastic, but the plot sucks.

  13. SALESK's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    Fascinating to look back at this as a pre-cursor to a decade which has plundered pulp/comic book/sci-fi/fantasy culture so completely for big-budget studio blockbusters. SKY CAPTAIN is a rarity: a misfit independent feature from an obsessive director with a vision and a crusading producer. Visually innovative, unabashedly indebted to Fritz Lang, a near perfect recreation of screwball comedy. A real pleasure.

  14. Risya's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    For a comic book adaptation, this movie is a bit fun in general. Visually a really artistic old-fashioned retro CLASSIC comic look because almost the whole film is computerized (just like Sin City). I'm impressed by the scenery and the whole settings. However, style aside, there isn't much else. The story itself is so-so and the plot is weak. Skip this.

  15. tripl3's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    I love it. It feels just... right... Like someone in 1930s wrote and filmed it, just with help of today's technology...

  16. mohammad saeed ahmadi's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

  17. NEONBEAR's rating of the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    always interesting to me when a director makes one film and just falls off the face of the earth.
