Not a bad B movie
17 May 2004 | by (Blacksburg, VA) – See all my reviews

I saw Pluto Nash for the first time on HBO and really enjoyed the move. It is a great B movie, cheesy plot and acting, but good action and great visual effects. It just didn't come together how I would have liked as Pluto was too much of a good guy to be a bad guy. But, there are certainly much worse movies that have been made like the Italian Job, but watching Pluto Nash, I never wanted to turn it off and watch a blank screen instead. Critics be damned, this is a good movie to watch on a rainy day. I wouldn't say to make a sequel, but the premise was solid, the lead actors good, the visuals excellent, but there is just a lack in general direction in the movie, but each scene is fun to watch. Give it a chance, don't expect a lot, and enjoy.
