The balls are in there. Or are they? Il Neige re-opens the book on one of the most hated adaptations of all time to see if it's really that bad.
“It feels like there’s no reason for this movie to have even been made, apart from the first film becoming a cult hit, and comic book adaptations now being even bigger business than they were in 2005.”
“I think the hardcore Sucker Punch fans are giving the film and its director way too much credit, especially considering how Zack Snyder would completely mishandle Superman just a couple of years later.”
Exploitation? Robots? Kung-fu? Guns? Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jamie Chung in sexy outfits? Normally, those would all be ingredients for the perfect movie, but when Zack Snyder is the chef, the only thing being served is a shit sandwich.
NOTE: This review is in Spanish with English subtitles. In this edition of the Movie Skewer, the Film Renegado enlists the help of two Latino friends to take on Dragonball Evolution, the long-anticipated big screen adaption of a popular anime/manga, directed by James Wong (Final Destination).
