Storyline

Babel tells the story of the Babels, a strange breed of four-foot-tall creatures who once coexisted happily with human beings on planet Earth. However, when the humans built a huge tower to taunt God, he became angry and drove the Babels underground, while scattering the humans to the corners of the Earth and giving them different languages to keep them separate. Thousands of years later, three Babels are searching underground for the Babel Stone presented to them by God when they lose the map -- which is soon snapped up by a dog, who presents it to his master, an advertising man named Patrick. The Babels are desperate to recover the map, and they recruit Patrick's son David to help them find it (and the Babel Stone) before the evil Nemrod can steal the stone and claim its powers.

Horrible Film.. horrible
31 August 1999 | by James-195See all my reviews

I don't think I have ever before walked out of a movie theater. Well yesterday, while watching 'Babel', I did. It was so bad as to make me cringe and decide that doing anything else at all would be preferable. I shall forever more wonder *why* I went to see this movie.
