Sky Captain's revolver is an Enfield No. 2 Mk I chambered for .380/200 (aka .38 S&W). The automatic he periodically uses (the one which magically transforms back into the revolver when he loses it on the log bridge) is a nickeled M1911 .45 (most likely a Colt). See more »

I had not read about the movie before watching it and was fascinated within the first several minutes and continued to enjoy it through to the end. This movie's unique look and feel is its primary vehicle.
If you are looking for a sophisticated plot, this movie was not made for you. The plot and acting were adequate enough to avoid ruining the visual picture. The makers applied a comic book feel to the movie that allowed for softer edges and sepia tones, both with the animated sets and the human characters. If a set does not look completely realistic, the viewer is not troubled because the set is consistent with everything you see in the movie.
Anyone who has ever edited video or worked with animation would have to appreciate the visual art and quality of this movie. Otherwise, it contains a decent story that would be worth watching at least once.
