I found that I Sell the Dead, a film with, maybe, one-tenth the budget and only half of this film's talented cast, was considerably better than this. Of course, that makes it sound like I Sell the Dead didn't have a good cast, Dominic Monaghan, Larry Fessenden and Ron Perlman are talented actors. It's just that this film is simply far more stacked because of, you guessed it, its budget. Yet, with all of its money and its technical 'wizardry', when compared to I Sell the Dead, whose budget is very obvious from looking at it, it simply lacks what I Sell...had and that is a solid script for the cast to work with. Perhaps this is my fault, as I watched the film in two sittings, two days apart, I believe, and part of me just really couldn't get into the film. The cast is certainly good, and there's some funny stuff, mostly from the police captain and his two deputies. I was actually kind of surprised by how funny these three were. It's not like they were subtle in that dry way that the British tend to do, and it's not like it's even great comedy, but it did make me laugh at how silly these three could be at any given time. It's a movie that, as far as I can tell, went up and down in relation to its consistency and its tonal issues. Perhaps more the former than the later, as this was more inconsistent than it being all over the place in terms of tone. Two sides of the same coin, I suppose. It's just that the film really isn't that funny, despite really trying very hard. It's just like everything, really. If you try enough then there will be some that hit and some that miss. Unfortunately, in this case, they're more misses than hits. The difference between the two may not be that much, but it's still leaning more towards miss. The film is certainly fine to look at, it captures the time and era fairly well. The best part, as should be obvious, is the cast. It's clear that they were having a good time, even if the script didn't match their enthusiasm. I found to be, at the very least, a watchable enough film, with enough liveliness, ironic considering the subject matter, from the cast to make it so that I didn't feel like I wasted my time watching it. I don't think it's good, but it was fine enough to sit through. The fact that it's less than 90 minutes long definitely helps. I will never watch it again, and likely forget it in a week, but this is a slightly below average film. It may look cheaper but I would recommend watching I Sell the Dead instead. It's so much better than this.

(gb) wrote: An insane journey. The action starts not even a minute in and does not let up. 30 minutes later you'll be asking yourself, "is this the same film I was watching 30 minutes ago?" You'll do the same an hour in, and again, and again with greater frequency! Seriously this film has everything: High budget sets, low budget sets, no budget left sets, space walks, space bats, space sphicters within a giant space metaphor, not-vampire not-clothed space ladies, dry not-zombie vampires, wet not-zombie vampires, long walks through the countryside, endless psychic techno-jargon laced exposition, the exorcism of Captain Picard, chaos in the streets (complete with Ghostbusters style special effects), exploding miniatures, highlander swords, martial law, true love and, of course, the impending nuclear strike of London. Then, before any drawn out final exposition can screw things up by attempting to reel back in the truly manic plot, the credits roll. An ideal horror film experience if ever there was.

(fr) wrote: A lovely romantic vehicle for the great Katharine Hepburn who plays a tourist in the beautiful city of Venice who has falls in love with an Italian shopkeeper but like Lean's earlier romantic film, Brief Encounter, the relationship only lasts as long as her time visiting the city. The film would have been rated higher if it was just a little bit shorter but Hepburn gives one of her best performances and the city of Venice is beautifully shot through David Lean's eyes. This was the last time Lean would make a small film and who's career would soon rise to such great heights with his epic spectacles "The Bridge On the River Kwai", "Lawrence Of Arabia" and "Doctor Zhivago". Recommended viewing for fans of David Lean, especially those that enjoy his smaller scaled films such as Great Expectations, Oliver Twist and Brief Encounter. 8/10
