If anybody was born to play Oscar Wilde, it must have been Stephen Fry: not only does he look like the Green Carnation Man, but he himself is often portrayed as being too clever, too complex for his own good.
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.
One of first Hollywood films about the effects of genetic engineering on human conduct, Andrew Niccol's directing debut is an intelligent and timely sci-fi that, despite some illogical plot contrivances, is emotionally engaging almost up to the end.
