The first film I chose on our flight from Brisbane to Narita was this one.
Despite all of the negative reviews I thought this was not too bad. Big CG blockbusters like this are just aren’t meant to be taken seriously are they? So, I just watch them for the explosions, shooting stuff up, and general silliness which this had plenty of.
Brent Spiner was by far the best actor in this, his nutty professor character was a hoot. The story was convoluted and confusing at times, as was some of the CG, and there was a little flag waving again of course. But, it had plenty of pretty things to look at, and a huge alien that went berzerb, so that was fun.
The story ended with the possibility of a third film, and I see on the interwebs that there is talk of it at the moment.
