SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW

 

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is a fun and rewarding trip to the movies.

It's filled with nostalgia, talent, and super special effects, just like an old, faded comic book.

This stylized 1939 rip-snorting world is under siege by giant robots.

The film offered me a lot of pleasure and memories, as it sweeps you into a cloak-and-dagger world. It shows you what the future looks like way back in the 1930s.

I loved it.

Travel with us now, to those thrilling days of yesteryear, where we meet Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

Art design is the king in this send up of the old-style serials, complete with hero, heroine, sidekick, and villain.

The plot may drag, but if you look closely, you'll see cinematic nods to hundreds of motion pictures.

And besides, where else is Laurence Olivier going to find work these days?

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is a science fiction/ adventure film that stars Jude Law as ace pilot Sky Captain, who encounters unfriendly skies when an evil scientist and his army of giant killer robots attack New York City.

The super-stylized movie offers fresh ideas and respectful homage to the 30s and 40s big-screen romantic comedies, comic books, and radio serials.

This is almost completely computer-generated magic in action.
