DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Sci-Fi Thriller - This is a 1930's "Buck Rogers" style story with its exaggerated acting, but without the cheesy special effects of the past. It's played very serious, as these types of movies were in the 30's. It contains a bit of humor to keep it fun and the pace is certainly quick enough to keep everyone entertained. It's entirely shot against a blue screen, which means all the backgrounds are computer generated. In keeping with the 30's style, the backgrounds appear similar to what you would see in a high end video game. Most of the time you easily forget everything isn't real. In some scenes it's easy to tell that it's computer generated, but it doesn't take anything away from the enjoyment of the movie.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent 'Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow' is even more fun than it sounds like. In its heedless energy and joy, it reminded me of how I felt the first time I saw 'Raiders of the Lost Ark.' It's like a film that escaped from the imagination directly onto the screen, without having to pass through reality along the way.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 142 moviegoer opinions. These are some pretty mixed opinions. I thought this movie would have received higher opinions than this.

From the detailed opinions it appears that most enjoyed the unique visual 30's style of the story, however, many didn't. Where you'll likely fall in the opinions range will depend a lot on how receptive you are to the 1930's serial movie style. Most moviegoers found it to be fun and entertaining and very different, in a good way. However, around a third rated it "Good" or lower, which is getting pretty low.

My suggestion? Go see "Sky Captain" on the big screen to get the full effect. If you're concerned that you may not enjoy it, I would strongly suggest a lower priced matinee, because you really want to see it at a theater, just in case you're one of the lucky ones who really enjoy it, like me.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Flying high above New York City is the Hindenburg III, a behemoth airship, docking atop the Empire State Building, the world's tallest port-of-call. Storm clouds rumble as snow blankets the city and startling news fills the screen: Famous scientists around the world are mysteriously disappearing. When deadly gargantuan robots trample the city streets, flinging cars and crushing buildings in their wake, on the investigation is Chronicle reporter Polly Perkins (Gwyneth Paltrow), who enlists the help of her old flame, Captain H. Joseph Sullivan (Jude Law) -- aka Sky Captain -- an ace aviator with daredevil flying skills.

Traveling to the Himalayan Alps, where they're trapped in an enormous ice cave wired with explosives, and to the tranquil valley of Shangri-la, Polly and Sky Captain battle terrifying flying robots, make an incredible mid-air landing on a mobile airstrip thousands of feet in the sky, and experience the wonder of underwater flight as they search for Dr. Totenkopf, the evil mastermind behind a plot to destroy the world.

Will these two determined souls find the elusive Totenkopf in time? With the help of the courageous captain of an all-female amphibious squadron, Franky Cook (Angelina Jolie), and technical genius Dex (Giovanni Ribisi), Polly Perkins and Sky Captain may be our planet's only hope.
