This Movie Sucks

I hate this film. This is one of the worst I have seen. I saw it 6 years ago when it came out. It was bad then because of the technology/early cgi. If you work in a retail store and someone wants to buy "Robots," give it to them for free - they shouldn't have to pay for it! This is a big fat WOOF!!

It's obvious they started this movie with the visual ideas (as they state they did in the DVD extras). They came up with this world--which is absolutely, mind-bogglingly, beautifully rendered in the film--and then hung a paper-thin plot on it. The voice cast is pretty good (minus Halle Berry, who is just bland), but the visuals definitely stick with you longer than any of the story elements.
Brosnan and Kinnear are Great

Great, darkly humorous story (pretty well summed up above) about an aging hitman who thinks he is losing his edge. Kinnear and Brosnan work really well together, as the naive businessman 'Danny Boy' (Kinnear) meets the raunchy, uncouth, yet somehow likable Julian (Brosnan).
Great atmosphere in Mexico City at the bullfights. This movie will make you laugh and may even touch your heart. Short and sweet at 90 minutes running time.
