Hey, Goodlooking is an intelligent, dark, and satirical look on the American youth culture of the 50's. Look beyond the poor standard of animation to a story of friendship, love and betrayal. And, of course, there are some great tunes. This film is truly a case of substance over style, which is unfairly dismissed by most people. If you can get past the early-80's, cheap techniques, as in Bakshi's LOTR, you'll discover a great film that works on many different levels.
IGNORE ALL THE OTHER COMMENTS ABOUT THIS FILM!!!!!!! They are extremely misleading. Fast Food mixes surreal with disturbing and still manages to make me laugh. From the Princess D bit to the bit with Oleg/Vladimir and so on. If you have a brain you will love this, NOW WATCH IT!
There are so many comments already on this film that I wouldn't normally
bother myself, and I'm sure someone else has put it better, but I felt I
to throw my opinion in on such a heatedly argued topic.
I loved this film! After the Phantom Menace, I really didn't have high
expectations for this film, so I was just blown away. If you've seen it
you'll know what I mean when I say the red and blue lit shots in the
climatic finale are too cool, even more powerful than the duel in the
Strikes Back. Obviously, people watch films for different reasons.
by the other comments, a lot of people have different reasons to me, but
you want a couple of hours of escapism, to be transported to a magical
place that could only ever exist on a cinema screen, you'll love it too.
Thank you George Lucas.
An excellent opening is followed by a bit of a slump in the night club scene. Personally, the reapers would have been alot more frightening and effective had they left out the silly over-the-top effects, like they do at the beginning. The ending picks up a bit, but it doesn't quite manage to create the adrenaline rush, manic-grin-on-face effect of the original. Maybe the tremendous fight in Blade's hideout (apart from hideous computer generated Blade bit) sets too high a mark for the rest of the film. On the whole, worth watching, but don't expect better than the original.
