Upside Down review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 01/13/13
Two planets merged into one has 3 rules: 1. All matter is pulled by the gravity of the world that it comes from, and not the other. 2. An object's weight can be offset by matter from the oposite world (inverse matter). 3. A matter in contact with inverse matter burns. The two words are designated Down and Up. Adam (Jim Sturgess) si from Down below while Eden (Kirsten Dunst) is from above. The pair accidentally meet and fall in love. One of the most gorgeous and unique cinematography similar to What Dreams May Come and The Fountain but lacks the emotional impact to A Time Travelers Wife or The Notebook. Performances especially from Stugress were wonderful and the soundtrack endearing. Some minor flaws would be the rushed love angle, some over emphasized smooching scenes and the faith of Aunt Becky. Film somewhat suffers as well in the screenplay department. Upside Down is a picturesque romantic drama about social classes, corporate manipulation/realities, and of course love and sacrifice.
