Any poster art that says 'Death Has a Ginger Beard' is clearly going to be either a truly awful movie, or a truly seminal movie. thankfully, this is the latter.
Ultra realism, ultra comedy, ultra gory, ultra cool.
Just ultra everything basically.
OK, OK, OK. It has a whiff of a sketch show that has been bonded into a movie, but any faults are totally blown away by the sheer comedy and crazy nature of this top, top film.
Watch it, now.
In many ways this is actually a perfect film.
Great script, great production design, great acting, great story.
i had not read the book, but loved the movie. The look and feel are so authentic and it has such a powerful message - almost sci-fi but without the sci-fi elements.
oh, and GREAT soundtrack.
This should have been a 5 star movie - I so wanted it be but it was just a bit weird....way too many characters, some appalling acting and some odd storyline.......however it was AMAZING set design and special effects and fantastic 3D, that really was cool. Not even in the same universe as Alien, and I can't see that we will reappreciate it as a 5 star in the decades to come......let's see what he does next....
