Shyamalan why were you doing things like The Lady in the Water,After Earth and The Last Airbender when you could be doing good films like this?
So, going into this movie my expectations weren't that high.
The other movie Rupert Sanders had done was Snow White and the Huntsman. Plus the last time Paramount atempted something like this we got Aeon Flux. And to top all that, the last anime adaptation by Hollywood that i recall was Dragonball Evolution.
All good reasons to stay away.
But i was interested by the original story and by the simple fact that i am a sucker for Scarlett Johansson.…
I knew this movie was good but i didn't knew it was so good.
The story is captivating, the characters are good and tridimensional, especeally Jack Nicholson, with a performance that makes the movie the classic that it is.
Milos Forman makes the 2 hours of duration of this movie fly by.
