winter_elf: Sherlock Holmes (BBC) with orange soft focus (Sheppard heart)
[personal profile] winter_elf
Another solid B movie.

Pros: Pretty, entertaining and amusing. Good for all ages. I really liked the Monkey and China girl sidekicks.

Cons: The leads were very one dimensional. The interest basically was the secondary characters - the monkey & China girl. I was not impressed by the 3D. Another studio grab. Go for the 2D.

Another movie with no surprises though a little long. The intro credits were well done and interesting.

James Franco did an okay job, if a little flat. I think really, that a much more charismatic actor in the lead role would have kept my interest more. To play a con man, you really need the 'oomph' and Franco tried, but just didn't have it. I read that they originally wanted/had Robert Downey Jr. He would have really fit this. Also, I think Jim Carrey could have blown it out of the park.

Basically, if you know the OZ books, I was told this is very true to them.
