I love Simon Pegg, but this movie is pretty shite.
Yet, somehow, I watched the whole thing.
Kind of like eating a very large, mediocre meal.
And then feeling grotesquely full.
Ok, so it’s sci-fi.
Could have been good.
But it went horribly wrong.
Such a hokey film!
The concept is good.
Kate Beckinsale is fairly boring.
But dreadfully boring.
Which means, to me, she’s not particularly attractive.
She’s like the color beige.
Or the flavor vanilla.
She generally has a shit attitude throughout this film.
Truth be told, the writing (script) for her character is pretty atrocious.
Actually, all of the dialogue (even that of Robin Williams as the dog) sucks.
10-C sounds like Tennessee.
At least Sanjeev Bhaskar does some decent acting here.
But the writing for his character also sucks (as I alluded to earlier).
The best bit is probably when Pegg gives himself a black schlong.
Again, the concept is good.
But the execution is sanitized and sterile.
This film has absolutely no trace of personality.
It’s as if it were made by robots.
Actually, the best acting here is (by far!) that of Rob Riggle.
Riggle’s Colonel Grant is actually the only convincing thing in this film.
That being said, at least the ending is above mediocre.
