They probably should have focused on one German, one American, and perhaps one French or Belgian. Instead, you have a disjointed plot skipping around Europe and you end up caring very little for any of it. Using big name stars only makes you more separated from the characters, the period of time, and the story itself. It would have been much better if they had used good actors little known to the public, or if they are going to use famous actors, shrink the story down to focus on only a few people and develop those characters more. The Train, a great 1964 movie with Burt Lancaster and Paul Scofield, touched on the same subject and did a lot more with a lot less. One detail of the movie that really annoyed me was that they made up the character of Preston Savitz, played by Bob Balaban. This character was based on Lincoln Kirstein, who brought George Balanchine to New York from Russia. Together they later established the New York City Ballet after the war. He was a remarkable enough character on his own to warrant a film. It was his vast knowledge of art that led to him and architect Robert Posey (played by Bill Murray) in finding the Ghent Altarpiece-- the central piece of art in the film. Kirstein was very tall and had very strong features-- very different than Bob Balaban. They should have made the entire film revolve around Lincoln Kirstein-- you would have ended up caring about his character they you would have ended up with a much more engaging and satisfying picture.

(ru) wrote: Tokyo gore police live up to it's title. Lots of gore and mayhem are to be expected from this flick. The movie and story itself is very original. Though the visual story telling is a drag. And some of the scenes are weird and funny. Just as expected from a japanese film.

(nl) wrote: Quite good that it's sort of a children's production of Die Hard crossed with The Rock, with plenty of violence but no blood or death - which isn't very convincing but at least it protects the PG rating. Patrick Stewart's lip-smacking gusto as the chief bad guy is the film's main asset.

(es) wrote: Wow! This "Dark" comedy is really bad. Why do I have the feeling that this movie was made years ago and sat on the shelf before Ryan Reynolds and Anna Kendrick became big stars. Avoid this one!
(it) wrote: It might be a cult musical but I can't say I enjoyed it quite as much. Liza Minnelli sure was charming, not the character though, but the male actors were annoying probably because of the '70s fashion choices. It was watchable but not twice.
