Most of action and a bit less of the charm of the original are on display here. You get more or less what was advertised: a loud, CGI-heavy, hit-or-miss humor-filled action movie. It's fun, but less so than the first.
The last made film of the legendary Star Wars brings great hopes, that will be full filled. Don't forget to take some ice cream or popcorn, because once you start watching there's no stopping. Prepare yourself for a film of an epic battle between good and evil.
I didnt feel like I was watching the sequal to the movie I loved. I was a little dissapointed. I kind of felt like I was watching a different movie all together than what I expected. Besides the throw back I thought the action was breathtaking and Shia was amazing but I was dissapointed in all the perverted material. I was set agast at all the bad humor.
there is only one word for this movie, fantastic. way better than the first and just as humorous. great action good cast and awesome special effects. if you havent seen it yet, your missing one of the summers and the years biggest and best movies.
http://braidedthreads.blogspot.com/2008/09/focus-on-racing-family.html...The draw to this film will probably be the effects-saturated racing, but by the time the final race comes along, you might find yourself more interested in watching the dynamics between the father, played by John Goodman, the mother, played by Susan Sarandon, and their two sons. The back-story doesn't matter nearly as much as it deserves to. It involves a "boy" first-named "Speed," last-named "Racer" (played by Emile Hirsch) and his race-car obsessed family who lost an older son to a racing accident in the years before the action that takes place in the film. I must say, this movie celebrates Family connections, Family relationships, and Family unity like a curb-side uber-1950s-style Swiss Family Robinson. Between the racing scenes there is a whole lot of family interaction: laughter, arguments, tension, exasperation, and forgiveness.
The main reason I enjoyed this movie was to see the birth of Darth Vader. Again the choice of Hayden Christensen as the role of Anakin was not much to be enjoyed. Overall the movie was better than Ep1 and 2 and gave a convincing tie to the Classic Trilogy.
