Movie Review: Race to Witch Mountain

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Race to Witch Mountain DS 1 Sheet Movie Poster - Style A

Available film art: Race to Witch Mountain Posters

Hyped as a “modern-day re-imagining” of the novel by Alexander Key — which previously inspired “Escape to Witch Mountain (1975) and its sequel “Return from Witch Mountain” (1978) — “Race” justifies its title by coming off as much more of a high-velocity action-adventure than its predecessors.

Helmer Andy Fickman (who previously teamed with Johnson on 2007′s “The Game Plan”) puts the pedal to the metal in the opening moments, as U.S. military and intelligence types rush to secure the Nevada desert site where a UFO has apparently crash-landed. Right from the start, it’s established that Burke (Ciaran Hinds), a Homeland Security agent, isn’t there to roll out the welcome mat for “illegal aliens.”

Meanwhile, off in nearby Las Vegas, ex-con cabbie Jack Bruno (Johnson) is trying to drive the straight and narrow path, despite efforts by mob goons to re-recruit him as a getaway driver. Fortuitously, Bruno picks up an attractive passenger, Dr. Alex Friedman (Carla Gugino), an astrophysicist who just happens to be in town to lecture at a UFO conference (which is amusingly attended by role-playing, wardrobe-wearing sci-fi geeks). Bruno gruffly dismisses the “nutjobs” who believe in visitations by otherworldly beings. This, of course, sets him up for some ironic enlightenment.

The next day, Bruno picks up two other passengers who scour him free of skepticism. During a series of high-speed chases and hairbreadth escapes, Sara (AnnaSophia Robb) and Seth (Alexander Ludwig) gradually reveal themselves as extraterrestrial visitors who fell to earth aboard the UFO, which was seized by Burke’s team and moved to a super-secret U.S. government installation hidden inside Witch Mountain.

The two human-looking teens are equipped with all manner of shape-shifting, mind-reading and telekinetic abilities, but they need Bruno’s help to avoid capture by Burke and his heavily armed SWAT team — and to avoid assassination by a Terminator-style hunter from their home planet.

“Race to Witch Mountain” strikes a deft balance of chase-movie suspense and wisecracking humor, with a few slam-bang action setpieces that would shame the makers of more allegedly grown-up genre fare. Fickman generously sprinkles witty wink-wink, nudge-nudge touches throughout, and the inevitable cameos by stars of the original “Witch Mountain” adventures, Kim Richards and Iake Eissinmann, are handled with sufficient finesse.

Script by Matt Lopez and Mark Bomback is unabashedly contrived, but the writers are clever enough to kid that contrivance. It may look and sound like a relationship-building throwaway bit, but the scene in which Bruno and Dr. Friedman discuss the ever-so-convenient coincidences that brought them together is self-referentially hilarious.

Johnson continues to flex his muscles as a charismatic screen presence, and here once again demonstrates his ego-free willingness to make himself the butt of jokes even as he does his derring-do.

Robb and Ludwig credibly suggest otherworldly temperaments without being too stiff about it, and Gugino is appealing as a standard-issue brainy beauty. Garry Marshall is the standout among the supporting players as a bestselling, surprisingly well-connected extraterrestrial expert who’s greeted at the UFO convention as some kind of superstar (not unlike real-life author Whitley Strieber, who’s fleetingly glimpsed among the conventioneers).

Special effects and other production values are first-class across the board, enabling auds to enjoy the pic as a serious sci-fi actioner as well as seriocomic family fare.

Rating: PG sci-fi action, some crude humor and mild language
Available film art: Monsters vs. Aiens movie posters

Synopsis
“Monsters vs. Aliens,” which is slated for a domestic release date of March 27, 2009, reinvents the classic ’50s monster movie into an irreverent modern day action comedy.

The cast of “Monsters vs. Aliens” includes: Oscar® winner Reese Witherspoon (“Walk the Line,” “Rendition”) as Susan Murphy, a.k.a. Ginormica; Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie (TV’s “House,” “Stuart Little”) as Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; Will Arnett (TV’s “Arrested Development,” “Blades of Glory”) as The Missing Link; Seth Rogen (“Knocked Up,” “Superbad”) as B.O.B.; Rainn Wilson (“Juno,” TV’s “The Office”) as Gallaxhar; Emmy winner Stephen Colbert (TV’s “The Colbert Report,” “Bewitched”) as The President of the United States; Golden Globe winner Kiefer Sutherland (TV’s “24,” “Phone Booth”) as General W.R. Monger; and Paul Rudd (“Knocked Up,” “Night at the Museum”) as Susan’s boyfriend, Derek.

“Monsters vs. Aliens” is directed by Rob Letterman (“Shark Tale”) and Conrad Vernon (“Shrek 2″), produced by Lisa Stewart (“I Think I Love My Wife”) and co-produced by Jill Hopper and Latifa Ouaou. The film marks the theatrical debut of DreamWorks Animation’s Ultimate 3-D, the studio’s proprietary production process of authoring its animated films in 3-D from start to finish.

When California girl Susan Murphy is unexpectedly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall and is instantly labeled a “monster” named Ginormica. The military jumps into action, and she is captured and held in a secret government compound. The world learns that the military has been quietly rounding up other monsters over the years. This ragtag group consists of the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link; the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B.; and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement time is cut short however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country.

As a last resort, under the guidance of General W.R. Monger (on a desperate order from The President), the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction.

Movie Review: The Watchmen

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

The Watchmen DS 1 Sheet Movie Poster Style A

“The Watchmen” gets rave reviews from Catharine Monk at Canada.com.

Despite a double pretzel of a plot, a heavy running time and a sprawling cast of characters who each get their moment in the spotlight, this Zack Snyder adaptation of the Hugo Award-winning Watchmen graphic novel series is entirely entertaining – as well as intellectually stimulating.

They said it was unfilmable – and whoever “they” were, “they” were right.

A thickly layered graphic novel that moves back and forth through time to challenge our current assumptions about everything from the laws of physics to the moral boundaries separating right from wrong, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s landmark Watchmen series has so many backstories, characters, conflicts and intricate emotional dilemmas, a cogent screen adaptation seemed highly unlikely, if not outside the realm of the possible.

But there it is. Undeniably, skilfully and wholeheartedly realized by Zack Snyder, the impossible now exists: Watchmen isn’t just a movie, it’s a great movie.

Though a hair on the long side at 161 minutes, Snyder’s film pulls you in from the moment the opening credits seize the screen to the rasping strains of Bob Dylan.

Snyder establishes an alternate universe through a carefully constructed montage that introduces us to The Minutemen, a ragtag group of costumed humans who came together in the 1940s to combat crime, and stay on top of the nascent nuclear threat.

By the 1980s, when this movie takes place, The Minutemen have morphed into The Watchmen – a group that includes Nite Owl (Patrick Wilson), Ozymandias (Matthew Goode), Silk Spectre (Malin Akerman), Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) and the only “superhuman” of the bunch, Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup), a nuclear scientist who was transformed into a walking illustration of quantum mechanics in an unfortunate accident.

In this understanding of reality, the Cold War continues, Nixon is entering his third term in office and Dr. Manhattan is considered the world’s primary nuclear deterrent because, as pure energy, he can move through time and space and presumably change the outcome of human actions.

The only problem is: What happens when your nuclear deterrent and central superhero undergoes a profound existential crisis?

Dr. Manhattan once loved Laurie Jupiter/ Silk Spectre, but now that he can see strands of energy and unlock the secrets of the universe, corporeal love with a human feels entirely inconsequential. To think things through, he heads off for some serious alone-time on Mars, but while he takes leave of the planet, another potent force threatens to unleash nuclear Armageddon – and without Dr. Manhattan speaking to the cameras affirming his loyalty to God and Country, he’s immediately suspected as a traitor.

As far as typical superhero plots go, Watchmen does offer up villains and heroes, as well as a dramatic thread concerning the ultimate struggle for world domination.

But that’s where Watchmen’s genre markers end, because this Hugo Award-winning piece of graphic literature isn’t really all that concerned with the surface elements of plot, and how the alleged good guys stop the supposed bad guys.

Watchmen is obsessed with inner conflict and the base face of human nature.

Using the comic book form and its convenient concept of masks and costumes to manifest different sides of the human character, the movie explores the essence of 20th century literary angst.

Offering a nod to everything from modern psychoanalysis in the ambiguous character of Rorschach, to the Nietzschean concept of Superman via Dr. Manhattan, Watchmen has all the intellectual sophistication of a graduate thesis, but it also has a killer sense of fun.

Thanks to Snyder’s near-hallucinogenic visuals that revel in smart details and pay homage to everything from Dr. Strangelove to Apocalypse Now, Watchmen is a lot of fun to take in – even when it’s almost impossible to follow.

The frames are laced with inviting textures, the plot bristles with prickly satire and the actors find a way to sell the whole ball of latex by gravitating to the ambient pathos in every scene.

The brief encounters with sex and full-frontal male nudity don’t hurt the entertainment factor, either. Better yet, they don’t destroy the feel of the film or come off as gratuitously oily, or gratuitously sexist.

Peter immediately sets out to rectify the situation, embarking on a series of bizarre and awkward “man-dates,” before meeting Sydney Fife (Jason Segel), a charming, opinionated man with whom he instantly bonds. But the closer the two men get, the more Peter’s relationship with Zooey suffers, ultimately forcing him to choose between his fiancée and his new found “bro” in a story that comically explores what it truly means to be a “friend.”
