Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is an action\/adventure movie set in an alternate 1930s America. It feels like it was inspired by the old comic and serial adventures of the time like Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon. The end product feels like a mix of Indiana Jones, The Lost World, and The Iron Giant.\n\nIt follows Joe Sullivan a.k.a. Sky Captain (Jude Law) and reporter Polly Perkins (Gwyneth Paltrow) as they hunt down and battle Dr. Totenkopf and his robot legions.\n\nThe film is very stylized and unique. Everything has an \u201Cit can almost be real\u201D quality about it. It may not be for everyone but I really enjoyed it. I especially liked the different robots.\n\nIf you\u2019re looking for something a bit different, this may be the movie for you.\n\nI would recommend this film.
Once Hackford has committed to the characters and to their compelling (if dark) world, he has nowhere to go but to some predecided facts that might not be the most interesting end to the characters' journey.
The two discs contain very limited features but you don't need them. Disc one is the full 3...Extremes film, which is made of 3 short films. It starts off a little quant and strange, but not very frightening, with "Dumplings". "Cut" is my favorite and the next short, filmed in Korean. The japanese finale, "Box", is an artistic and climactic finish. Disc 2 is the full version of Dumplings, made due to its success. It's much easier to follow.
For the price, you really get 4 movies on 2 discs, with out any extra, unnessecary stuff. The subtitles are clean and well-translated.
