A volunteer troop of middle-aged men gather to defend their country from dark shrouded foreign invaders. Hearing the summons from an elderly man, the group quickly mobilizes as they change into their light-colored costumes. Political upheaval and gangland warfare threaten the last remnants of a civilized society out of touch with the rest of the world. A poet, a modern Don Juan and a man who loves violence are just some of the victims brought down by the enemy. A femme fatale captures the Don Juan, and the violent man is shot while watching a television western. This marks the directorial debut of Hugo Santiago.

David B (kr) wrote: There's a scene in this film - I won't say which - where almost nothing significant happens. What does happen is barely a movement, something most directors wouldn't even show. But in it's pure simplicity and minimalism, it somehow becomes the most beautiful, heartfelt, deep, and powerful scenes in the entire movie, and perhaps of all animation. But that's Miyazaki's genius.

(But the studio redeems itself through "The Expendables" incidentally.) To summarize, watch the fighting scenes, & head to the kitchen or bathroom to avoid getting to know Torch's clone.

"David and Lisa", mesmo com essas caractersticas, evita ser um tearjerker comum, muito custa de uma excelente dinmica entre personagens e de um ncleo de actores que contorna o exagero mesmo quando tudo chama por ele (o psiclogo sensato Howard da Silva um brilhante exemplo de conteno e tacto). A essas qualidades juntam-se uma excelente banda-sonora, dois ou trs momentos em nome do sublime, e aqui temos um indie precoce que no ter sido ignorado por quem mais tarde fez "Voando Sobre Um Ninho de Cucos", "Ordinary People" ou "Good Will Hunting".
Jake M (ru) wrote: Happy Feet Two (2011) feels kinda clunky and unimpressive even despite having impressive animation and some heartfelt moments. Granted, Sequels are not that easy to perfect, but I felt like something wasn't right and the story for the most part was confusing. I don't necessarily get what the plot of the movie is. We have one plot about Erik trying to find who he really is. Another about a puffin that everyone claims is a flying penguin and it inspires Erik to fly, another about the penguins being enclosed by blocks of ice and Mumble trying to be a good parent. I could see some of these plot elements working but they are constantly derailed because they try to squeeze in other side plots that are honestly not needed. The characters are not necessarily bad but they're not all that good either. Mumble is now a father which I kinda will admit I did like the concept but because of the other side plots it's merely glanced over. Gloria is still the same love interest like before and Ramone admittedly has become less likable and a little more annoying. The new characters don't really help that much either. Erik is just the cute little penguin and is Mumble's son. He has some cute moments but it really didn't do a lot for me. Sven is a puffin but everyone thinks he's a flying penguin. It does sound funny admittedly but it's used more the story then it is a side gag. The krill are kinda pointless and aren't really that funny. It is possible to make a funny side character that doesn't connect with the story but this is not a good example. The only new character that kinda works is Bryan the elephant seal. I guess I liked him because he was the only character that actually had a purpose to be in this movie and there is a shocking moment between him and mumble in the third act. If the movie has one saving grace it's the animation. For the most part it looks the same but they add in new things like the detail on the krill, the bright colors of the northern lights and some of the texture on the snow. They also bring back live actors but it seems that now they're showing them from different perspectives and admittedly It started to look kinda awkward after a while. I also wish that the humans showed up less because it feels like we've seen them a little more then we should have. The music is not that bad and there are a few good numbers like "Under Pressure and "Bridge of Light" but it feels like the music is starting lose it's charm and the songs have become clumped together instead of flowing smoothly. I wouldn't recommend seeing this movie even if you're a huge fan of the first movie. It does have a couple of good moments and sometimes the story can get interesting, but I feel like they tried to squeeze in too much and I didn't know what the heck was going on most of the time. As for me, I'm going to stick with watching the first movie. It's unfortunate to say that this movie has fallen under the sequel trap (C+)
