It's not often that I write reviews, mostly because I'm not that good at it. But I have to write about this movie.
I think that this movie is getting a lot of unnecessary hate.
Sigourney Weaver and Winona Ryder deliver some really really good performances. And Leland Orser (who I think is an underused actor) has some really good scenes where he overacts, but it works and he delivers!
I really like that Jeunet's visual style is present and you can clearly see references to some of his earlier work (like City of Lost Children). I also liked the humour where you can both feel the presence of Joss Whedon and Jeunet. I think that Jeunet's humour fits this quirky universe perfectly.
It's not that I can't see its faults, like the poorly designed hybrid alien at the end. But despite that I am entertained from beginning to the end and I enjoy the ride everytime I watch it.
