The vintage cinematography and throwback approach to old serials is a joy to watch. Possibly partly in fault to trying to emulate these serials, the plot and acting is a little conventional, but the film still packs some entertaining moments. Better than most think.

A really terrible movie that never came close to my expectations that weren't high to begin with. A pretty forgettable movie.

The technology kind of overshadows the acting, but overall I was pleased with Sky Captain. It's far from perfect, but it is entertaining and I would watch it again. That counts a lot.

"Sky Captain & The World Of Tomorrow" by Yojimbo

In an alternate version of wartime New York, a dashing mercenary tries to prevent the evil plot of a megalomaniacal German scientist and his army of giant robots. One of the first films to abandon sets and locations in favour of green screen CGI, Sky Captain still looks surprisingly good. As such, it can be blamed for everything from the sins of Lucas and Cameron to Sin City but although the CGI looks dated, the fact that it beautifully renders the retro look of the 1940s means that it never looks cheap and nasty. Add some gorgeous art deco production design and a very attractive cast and this film is still rather special to look at. The plot, although rather episodic and convoluted and often just an excuse to cue up another visual spectacle, does successfully capture the cheerful cornine...

Great underrated film!

To be honest, this movie isn't about oscar-winning performances. The actors play their parts really well; they are supposed to be archetyped. I got the feeling that if superheroes were real, they would be like Skycaptain or Frankie. Skycaptain has his own hangar and mercenary forces.. that rocks. Moreover, the style, color, and plot of this movie are awesome. With every scene this movie gets more and more fantastical. I mean really, what screen writer thought up Shangri-La? This movie takes you into a stunning fantasy world with a lot of creative thought behind it. When Totenkopf gives his speech about humans failing as the shepards of this world, chills ran down my spine. The plot fits together perfectly no matter how over the top it might be. Not only that, but the ending is great! This...

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

I love, love, love the look of this film; it feels like I'm watching a timeless classic movie. Everything is half-way black-and-white mixed with a mystic sepia glow. The robots reminded me of a real-life version of "Iron Giant" and they made me think about this one episode of an animated Superman series where he had to fight the machines (I vaguely remember because I watched it when I was about five or six years old). The action sequences are so grand yet fun. It's also very funny at times so I don't know why critics are complaining about it lacking an emotional core. Personally, I cared for the fate of each character and I thought the villains were really effective. I think this is an underrated classic, especially coming from a first time director. The adventure somewhat reminded me of ...
