I just saw Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
The style of the visuals was pretty interesting, but the whole thing felt oddly amateurish, especially–and this is the weird bit–the acting. Gwynneth Paltrow was terrible. Her accent grated (has she never watched a Thirties film noir pic?), she was stiff, and she and Jude Law had zero chemistry.
The action sequences also were laclustre as they communicated the fact that the actors were in front of green screens and had no interaction with the world. The key to good CGI is faking that really well, and this failed.
I’m glad this was part of my Netflix subscription and not something I payed 9 dollars for.
