Goofs

When Claire, Arnet and the others reach the wooden bridge with the truck, there immediately is a wide shot establishing the bridge and the valley. On top of the bridge, however, we can already see the truck driving on it and Claire waving it along, whereas in the next shot everybody is back at the parked truck. See more »

A German Indiana Jones...?
3 August 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews



That was a nice flick to watch. A pretty classical adventure story centered around the beautiful girl looking for her fiance in the most exotic spots, meeting the rough incestigative journalist to get drawn into fights between sweating rebels and nasty dictators... the classical thing.

The story held little surprises, but the usual gaping plot holes (The rebel air force seems to outnumber the dictator's mightily... hm). Actually, I would have loved to see more of the "adventure" (Aztec tombs, hidden treasures and stuff) than the fighting between revolutionaries and junta, but it was still okay. Overall, the script was well paced, had amiable characters, was funny at times, and never dull or boring.

But the editing and effects really are the special thing. They are not overwhelming or breathtakingly spectacular, but they have been put to good and subtle use -- which is a rare and good thing. _Coronado_ is not a 90 minutes effects orgy where the directors think that 8 cuts/second and a shaky hand camera will create a sense of thrill. The film is not there to display the effects, but the effects are there to serve the film -- here, the hand of the Germans involved in the production may make itself noticeable. ;-) The most memorable stunts (the bridge, the arrival at the rebel camp) are really nicely crafted and keep you on the edge of the seat.

Let me be a bit of patriot here: After Emmerich went to the States and completely adopted the "American" style of cinema -- not necessarily a good thing, IMHO -- here we have a new team which gives a well-established genre a new, own twist. Perhaps, finally these are steps to create a German cinema, which will be able to compete with Hollywood on its own territory -- classical entertainment.

I liked every minute of _Coronado_, and I hope the audiences will savour this film as much as I do.

P.S.: IMDB just pointed out "incestigative" to me, which of course should read "investigative". But I love this typoe much too much... ;-)
