Anyone with half a brain knows that this film is going to be complete garbage. 99.9% of films made today are for the sole purpose of profit rather than art. This is no different. Glad you wasted two hours of your time watching this thing so you could write the review. And get off Zemeckis' back, he directed Forrest Gump and the Back to The Future trilogy, what have you done?

You're bitching about how films are all about profit over art, and then go on to defend Zemekis of all people? Ah, yes, Forrest Gump and Back to the Future! What untouchable masterpieces of artistic expression! Only a true visionary could have created such un-commercial, yet so very personal, work. How dare a film critic criticize such an artist. He should go home, listen to Huey Lewis and the News, and think about what he's done. For shame!

MarQ, I know Zemeckis' isn't some artistic genius, it was meant as a stab at our writer from the article above. Good lord.

I doubt many people will agree with the assessment of this writer. This rendition of the story brings London to life even more than you would imagine. It is a far more interesting version of the overdone story. Once you have seen a live /human acted production, every other version seems nearly the same. This version, however, tells the same story but adds quite a bit of creative interpretation that makes the story compelling and the experience engaging.

Art is subjective and you didn't like it...too bad. Those of us who value creativity can experience the intention of the artist and this movie is full of things to experience -- it's not limited by human actors or real venues. The textures of skin and hair were wonderful, sure, while some of the other "humanoid" aspects were a little lacking. But go see this movie for the unexpected moments that Zemeckis added. And do yourself a favor and see it in 3D. Sure, that's gadgety, but again, you won't regret it.

It's a wonderfully fun piece of art that tells a story most folks are _done_ with hearing. Delivering it in a fresh, interesting way ensures more people will see it and be reminded to think of others. Except for the author of the article, and perhaps MucinexD, who completely missed that point.
