A highly entertaining hot mess of a movie, stuffed full of visual treats and a surfeit of bonkers ideas - I predict a reappraisal and midnight screenings within a decade. Its real problem are the two leads, who I don't doubt are fine dramatic actors, but who possess neither the charisma or chemistry to carry this kind of roaring tentpole.
As nice to look at as it is stupid to sit through. The best effects money can buy won't make up for two leads with no chemistry spouting dialogue that would be tepidly sexist in the early 90s, let alone now. There aren't enough characters left in this box to explain the movie's subtextual racist tendencies, so you'll just have to trust me on that score. Bloated, boring, beautiful colors.
This actually would've been great if they recast DeHaan and Delevigne. This movie is up there with Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 for best visuals of 2017. Had some legitimately funny moments. The plot was a bit sporadic but I didn't find it too difficult to follow having zero knowledge of the comics it's based off of. Huge props to Ethan Hawke and Rihanna for their supporting roles.
A visual spectacle but hardly relevatory in the script department. The movie is hampered by Delevigne and De Haan who have zero chemistry and that De Haan's character behave like an a-hole most of the time. Still the movie is a decent scfi-fi romp that entertains due to it´s whimsy and fun visual style and some cool action set pieces.
Tout le monde avait dit tellement de mal de ce film que je m'attendais effectivement à un énorme navet. Effectivement, les personnages sont ratés, les dialogues nuls... Reste que si l'histoire n'est pas exceptionnelle, elle s'élève un peu au-dessus de biens des blockbusters de SF. Mais le plus riche est incontestablement la pluralité d'univers, de personnages. On a vraiment l'impression de découvrir 1000 planètes.
