Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Because we don't have $300 million to throw about. We understand symbolism. We just don't like it when it's half-baked and cliched symbolism. Any hack could write a better plot.
Brilliant review, I say. Ham-fisted social messages, lumbering dialogue, and recycled stories aren't enough to carry 3 hours of pretty pictures. The villain has facial scarring. Is that the best the King Of The World could come up with? "We better watch out for this guy. He's disfigured."
And although the CGI is impressive, the mix-and-match alien life is less than imaginative. Hammerhead Shark + Rhino. Jellyfish + Dandelion. Pterodactyl + USB port.
