Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow


Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow - Angelina Jolie (Advance)


In the Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Jude Law plays the dashing pilot, Joe "Sky Captain" Sullivan. While, Gwyneth Paltrow plays the intrepid Chronicle reporter, Polly Perkins. Both are investigating the disappearance of a group of top scientists and the invasion of enormous robots in this wonderfully imaginative adventure film that's a tribute to the 1930s and the day of cliffhanger adventures. From solving puzzles to saving the world from an evil mastermind, Dr. Totenkopf, who plots to destroy the earth, their adventures take them from Manhattan to Tibet, a floating aircraft landing strip above the clouds, a dynamite-packed abandoned mine and the depths of the ocean. Absolutely everything about this film has been born from pure imagination.

While Law (Sky Captain) and Paltrow (Polly Perkins) do a fine job, Giovanni Ribisi, who plays Dex, a mechanical genius and friend to Law who ultimately gets kidnapped by the robots, does a fine job as well. Angelina Jolie, sporting a sharp eye-patch, is equally impressive as Franky Cook, commander of an all-female amphibious squadron. In the end, these four characters are the earth's last and best chance of survival.

The director/writer, Kerry Conran, spent ten years creating this film on his computer. So you won't be surprised to know that every building, car, airplane, robot, abandoned mine, even the streets, the ocean and every single snowflake and raindrop was created straight from a computer to the screen.

It's amazing how technology had an incredible role in the creation of this film. Sometimes, it's difficult to sit back and admire the story when you're too busy being in awe over the technology being used in such a magnificent creation. But Conran did give some hints at the possibility of creating an all-computerized movie by using the performance of an actor, long since departed.

Parents should be aware that this movie does have its share of intense peril, as well as gunplay and explosions. There is a bit of crude humor. There are also some images of skeletons, a dead body and some pretty nasty robots. Additionally, there is non-sexual nudity, but nothing is really shown. Plus, the movie does portray the female characters as able and courageous individuals.
