Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
Source: Catholic News Service
Visually striking but essentially empty-headed and unrelievedly loud action-adventure film that attempts to pay homage to film noir and the serials of the '30s such as "Flash Gordon" in a tale of an intrepid reporter (Gwyneth Paltrow) and pilot (Jude Law) setting out to find a dastardly villain (a posthumous appearance by Laurence Olivier) who plans to take over the world. Kerry Conran's feature-film debut demonstrates great visual flair, though the digital effects are ultimately wearying, and performances by stars Law and Paltrow are, even within the comic-book constraints of the story, not among the best of their careers, though Angelina Jolie provides some spark as a no-nonsense captain who comes to their rescue. Action violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
