It seems that the viewing public were not impressed with what they deemed a sub-standard, Shrek rip-off, and it was buried in the rubble of film follies. I agree that it in no means captures the creative wonder of Shrek; and perhaps I was still reeling from the horror of the last children's film I had watched, but I honestly didn't think this movie was awful. The clumsy attempt at cleverness with the spelling in the title is most definitely lame; and the plot is admittedly predictable (as with the majority of kids films). It was, however, average in its entertainment value. It provided an hour and a half of fairy tale fun for the kids; and I had the added bonus of spotting Sarah Michelle Gellar and George Carlin's voices. There are assuredly worse family films out there to pick on. Besides, it seemed to do well enough to inspire a sequel! I have yet to sample that one, but I will be sure to pass on a verdict.

Johnathon W (au) wrote: Disappointing action film that, while ambitious on paper, doesn't hold together. The cast is solid across the board, with Donnie Yen giving his usual excellent lead performance while showing off his impressive martial arts skills. He gets nice support from the rest of the cast, particularly Qui Shu as his love interest with a dark secret. Behind the camera is where things fall apart. The story begins with nicely, highlighting a little known fact of history of the Chinese that worked as laborers during WWI and then transitioning to Japanese occupied Shang Hi. The concept of a masked superhero inspiring the Chinese resistance is a cool touch, with nice nods to Bruce Lee, from the costume to his iconic scream. Sadly, too many subplots & characters distract from what should have been a simple story and at times you have no idea what is going on. Quite frankly, it's not sure what kind of film it wants to be, resulting in a disappointing mess.

Star Wars taught us that fx don't need to be good for a good movie, and the plot was entertaining enough to not bore me. Their were some things that aren't explained well in the movie, but all the more reason to rewatch and try to figure out what this movie is about.

I'm surprised this film wasn't popular than it was, it's a fascinating story that is well told.

Van R (ag) wrote: The musical "This Is The Army" qualifies as the most unusual war film that Warner Brothers produced. This Home Front musical stirred up controversy with scenes where active duty armed forces personnel cavorted in female apparel. Essentially, two Irvin Berlin stage plays, "Yip, Yip, Yaphank," a 1917 stage production, and Berlin's successful 1942 Broadway play "This Is The Army," served as the basis for the film. "Casablanca" scenarist Casey Robinson and veteran screenwriter Claude Binyon, an army captain now, added a back stage story about a young soldier's reluctance to marry his sweetheart before he marches off to war. The movie also spelled out its patriotic, gung-ho ideology in the last scene with the song "This Time Is The Last Time." The lyrics of this song suggested that there would not be a World War III. Warner Brothers assigned Casablanca director Michael Curtiz to "This Is The Army." Production on this Technicolor "A" picture got underway February 24, 1943 and ended May 14, 1943.The action unfolds in New York City in 1917 as dancer Jerry Jones (George Murphy) receives his draft notice. Jones marries his sweetheart Ethel (Rosemary DeCamp) and then reports for duty. At boot camp, Jerry struggles to make the transition from dancer to foot soldier. He makes his drill instructor, Sergeant McGee (Alan Hale, Sr.), painfully aware of his problem with regimentation. When Sergeant McGee talks about Jerry's problem to the camp commandant, Major John B. Davidson (Stanley Ridges), the commander decides that Jerry's talents may be put to better use on a morale boosting play. Jerry produces and stages "Yip, Yip, Yaphank," a show about Army life. As the show draws to a finish, the doughboys march off the stage in full fighting gear, down the aisles, and head for their transport ship. Jerry sees action somewhere in France, and comes home a cripple. He walks with a slight limp, but his handicap does not restrict him from his first love"the stage. He opens a theatrical talent agency.The film leaps from 1918 to 1941, and Jerry's son, Johnny (Ronald Reagan), enlists in the Army to fight World War II. Johnny's sweetheart Eileen Dibble (Joan Leslie) wants to marry him before he leaves, but he refuses to exchange vows. Meanwhile, Jerry gets together with Major Davidson, and they arrange for Jerry to produce another morale boosting musical. Reluctantly, Johnny helps out his father. Unlike "Yip, Yip, Yaphank," the new show incorporates African-Americans in the cast, most prominently boxing champion Sergeant Joe Louis (the actual Joe Lewis), and features an all black musical number "That's What The Well-Dressed Man in Harlem" will wear"army khakis. As the soldiers are about to perform their final number, Ethel persuades Johnny to marry her. In the closing number, Johnny and the troops march off to World War II singing "This Time Is The Last Time." No sooner had Warner Brothers prepared to go into production on "This Is The Army" than an issue arose involving overseas distribution and the Office of Censorship. Warner sent a memo to Hal Wallis about the matter dated December 28, 1942, that Allison Durland, an unofficial adviser to the OOC who handled Latin American affairs for the PCA, said, "regardless of extenuating circumstances he does not believe export license would be granted because of female impersonators." As Warner Brothers would learn to their surprise, Central and Latin American countries considered men dressing up as women as repugnant and immoral. That American soldiers would be impersonating females did not go over well either.Although Warner Brothers released This Is The Army to domestic theaters on August 14, 1943, the studio had to confront the unexpected crisis over female impersonators, a predicament unique to this movie, because they produced no other films during the war that created so much controversy over something that everybody involved in deemed more amusing than offensive. Warner Brothers foreign distribution executive Carl Schaefer sent a memo to Warner on December 17, 1943, after he had conferred with Rothacker. Schaefer told Warner that he had "been advised unofficially we will be denied export license for This Is The Army if men play chorus girls as in the stage production." At length, Schaefer explained the rationale to Warner, "Female impersonators do not exist in Latin America: men in women's clothing are highly insulting and revolting to Latin American sensibilities and censors. Even could the film be exported, United States soldiers cavorting in dresses would represent ammunition to the enemy's propagandists. The Universal Pictures film "Argentina Nights" (1940) proved this point."This Is The Army" is a blast to watch.
