Synopsis: Famous scientists are disappearing! New York is attacked by giant robots! Can Sky Captain and ace reporter Polly Perkins save the world?!?
It's all in the shadows. The entire film depends entirely upon the lighting, and it was expert. It's a comic book story with occasionally a Tim Burton's Batman look and feel, excellent quips, terrific delivery by Paltrow (who genuinely carries off the 30s clothing and hair), and a lot of fun. It's outlandishly preposterous and definitely worth seeing.Added 11 December 2004 at 1:39 PM
The story was silly but fitting and I loved the way the movie looked. I don't care if I ever see it again but it was worth watching once.
