Dejah and John together forever. OK, I can take the schmaltz, even the bit with a dog. It is Disney after all. The CGI was great and the action scenes fantastic, but let down, over-all, by the screenplay. Average and derivative- The Mummy, The Scorpion King, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and Attack of the Clones etc… all rolled into one. Surprising, as uber-author Michael Chabon was involved. Pity- it could have been so much more. Still, worth a vid/pizza night. In short- beautiful and vacuous. Dejah is gorgeous though.
Look out for more reviews coming up. Iron Sky next. I’ll be squared-eyed by the time the weekend is over. Dirty job, but someone’s got to do it.
P.S. Casting directors, let’s see Mark Strong NOT playing a villain for a change.
