Action-packed sci-fi you must see!
Obviously most of the people who rated with less than seven stars this awesome movie just watch it expecting: 1. A french drama 2. A Woody Allen style movie 3. A Norwegian drama 4. A hateful romantic comedy 5. A sort of drama from the real life portrayed to the movies.
Well guys, I'm sorry to tell you that you expected BAD, sorry! While it's true aliens are really dumb to be such an evolved species that can travel long distances through the space, this ISN'T A SCI-FI MOVIE, IT'S AN ACTION MOVIE, you airheads! And as an action movie it totally rocks!! I mean, you remain nailed to your sit all the way the +2hs this movie plays, screaming and ranting and clapping and feeling real good when the good guys hits hard the bad guys, so in no way this movie can be named as a bad movie, it's plain awesome!
Hey, I enjoy Allen's movies, European cinema, good science fiction movies, etc., and I enjoyed this one a lot, from the very first scene when Alex burp at his brother in the bar -being so close to the girl hi was trying to pick-up, lol!- and then gets in the market just to get the chicken taco Samantha wanted!
So, if you watch this movie looking for a serious, technical science script, you're busted, BUT if you watch it looking for an action-packed movie with sci-fi components, well, it's very likely you will have a _very_ good time as I had!
Go on, grab some cold beers, push play and enjoy the movie bro!
Fase 7 (2010)
A must-see movie of it genre
While indeed the topic of a world-wide virus that kills everyone is a threadbare because so much bad movies that are based on it (so much!), this very one film is EXCELLENT, in the line of REC, a must see movie you like the genre.
I first caught it on I-SAT (www.isat.tv), an Argentine cable channel that specialize in non-mainstream productions, one Wednesday at 1:30 AM and since the characters where suited in bio-hazard suits and spoke in Spanish, rioplatense Spanish actually, and one of them with cordobés accent, I think the movie was actually related to El Eternauta (meaning Eternauta 'ethernal astronaut', a well known sci-fi and political comic of Argentine's seventies) soon to realize it was a totally different story.
The best think of the film are without doubt the acting and the oppressive atmosphere created by a well taken camera viewpoints and background music and the special effects were pretty cool too, I absolutely buy that everything on the movie was actually happening, the guns shooting, the sick people, the dead bodies, everything.
I'm giving ten stars to this movie because it actually hypnotize me to the point of stop zapping, sit down, sharap and watch and for the euphoria I feel for the next hour after the movie ended.
This is a great movie that will have you in a tense suspense for more than an hour and I hope you enjoy it as I did! BTW, this is definitely not a chic movie, so if you are a woman (little girls may still enjoy it) and you don't like it please don't rate it down, this movie it isn't for you.
John Carter (2012)
Warning: this movie will be enjoyable only by those who enjoy life as well!
Forget what the critics says. The critics are only good for criticize because they don't have the ability to create *anything*, and that's why they make their living based on what they think is right or wrong about the work of others: in other terms next time you come across a films critic please say them to find a honest job.
Said that, I must said John Carter from Mars surprised me like no other movie did in a very long time. To be true I even had very low -no at all- expectations about this movie after seeing in a trailer months ago the scene when "Vorginia"'s hurled to the arena to fight the White Apes; I remember me thinking "Yuck! What a bad copy of Avatar, and they said this movie have a u$s 250.000.000 budget? My God! Seems corporate crap at Disney thinks they will hit the jackpot just by keep feeding dollars to the movie production!"
Oh my, HOW WRONG I WAS, this movie has it all to be an all time classic, it's an EPIC movie, one of those you see with your jab down the knees while exclaiming "wooooow!"
This movie is PERFECT, a light one of course -don't try to find nothing metaphysical, nor the complex script an European movie may have, this is not J.P Sartre :D- but it's a perfect movie, almost every part of it is perfect: the panoramic shots are breathtaking, the acting of this guy Taylor Kitsch and the sweet Lynn Collins are actually pretty good, the overall atmosphere: it's plain awesome!, reminds me of those '50s and '60s Hollywod super-productions, the tint, the colors and the way it's recorded reminds me in some way to Flash Gordon, the Tales from Trigan Empire and the drawings from Boris Vallejo; the CGI is by far the better I saw anywhere, the villains are truly hateful except may be for Matai Shang which I hate and like at the same time (he makes me remember the creepy guys from Dark City -1998-)... I mean, every detail has been taken care in this movie, and we are talking of a movie of 2:45hs duration that seems to long only half an hour: that's my definition of a good movie!! It was very funny to see John kiss the floor once and again when he learned how to walk on martian soil and even it was funnier every time he crashes his plane (into the sands), you say "this guy keeps hitting himself to the floor, seems the only way he knows to land, :D!" And what about the very first massive fighting scene at the Tharks town skies between the Red and Blue armies? That was a classical pirate's action scene -like all-time classic Captain Blood or, for instance Scaramouche- that works very well for me, sweet! The only difference this time is the fighting happens at a very high altitude from the ground on flying machines and in Mars! - as Wayne and Garth would say: EXCELLENT! :D
This movie has action, suspense, love, an intriguing storyline, you know this is a sweet movie that I really enjoyed at my 34ys that surely could blow my mind if I were a kid instead of a grown up.
Hey, it even has at least one interesting parliament: Matai Shang: "To truly demoralize a nation requires a public spectacle on the grandest scale." (That's reminds me certain event back in 2001)
Have I mentioned the detail put in the Carter's manor, in his study? And of course I can't leave out Woola, to everyone who loves dogs, he is lovely :)
This is an excellent movie and I hope we see more adventures from John Carter of Mars, they're a refreshing and welcome addition to the sci-fi world.
Finally I want to thank everyone involved in the making of this film and apologize from my foolish words about what I presumed this movie was to be, I'm really, really happy I was wrong :) thank you!!
