Hollywood: more movies like this please!
Yay!! This movie proves that excitement, adventure and danger do not automatically equal violence, sex jokes and crude behavior. I keep having to say NO to all of the Superhero movies because of the PG-13 rating. So it was great to be able to say "Yes" to my 7-year-old twin boys for once. This is a "manly" movie. The emotional issues men and boys face in life are handled succinctly, giving this movie more depth than the non-stop action would seem to allow. The 3D effects truly add to the excitement. The few gratuitous/gross ones were just plain old fun & funny.
I am disheartened by all the "no plot/no story" comments. Almost all are followed with complaints about a lack of blood, sex and violence. Gone are the days when the STORY itself was enough to entertain folks. I know it is weird to say that about a film that relies heavily on CGI/3D but even when viewing the home version without 3D this movie is enjoyable. Why? because the characters matter, their relationships to each other matter. The other complaint I can't understand is bashing Fraser for his "one-liners" and "cliches". Um, people you do understand that he is not writing his own dialogue, don't you? Besides, loosen up. The quips are harmless fun and there are enough of us out here that kinda like 'em.
The theater was packed and people actually clapped at the end. I hope Hollywood pays attention and puts out more PG movies of this caliber. PLEASE New Line Cinema: Make the Atlantis sequel.
