Amy Adams is an insufferable but pretty redhead LA artist who makes EDGY installations that CHALLENGE YOUR PERCEPTIONS OF BEAUTY. But once she was really mean to her ex, Jake Gyllenhaal, who is a NICE GUY and she aborted his baby without telling him. So he writes a novel and sends it to her, about a NICE GUY (Jake Gyllenhaal) who is married to a pretty redhead and has a pretty redhead daughter.
Only the wife and daughter are kidnapped,…
Visually spectacular, but oddly unengaging. At times brilliant, at times painfully hamfisted, with a dying Earth premise that never quite rings true. The cast are great and the concepts weighty and fascinating, but too often it feels like parts were rushed to get to the bits Nolan was interested in (a bit bizarre in a 3-hour film). The 2001 references are likewise rather too on the nose. Admirable for it's scope and ambition, but lacking Nolan's normal skill in execution.
