It is often breathtaking to view, wonderfully edited, a breeze to sit through and will put a smile on the faces of everyone...except those huge, gross elephant seals.
Estevez, Jeffrey Wright, Alec Baldwin, Jena Malone, Christian Slater, Michael K Williams and Taylor Schilling all do very good work, and the script gives them all characters with a lot behind them.
The Hummingbird Project can be a raw and real look at the cost of determination. It moves along at a solid pace and ends on a beautifully framed and melancholy shot that is bound to make you think.
This was an excellent two hour look at humanity through the lens of something decidedly inhuman and I really enjoyed not only watching the thrilling ride but thinking about its deeper implications.
It was a solidly made film with some great actors giving it their all, but the intentions behind the script rang false.
This is a very enjoyable family film that doesn't need subtle, subversive adult humor to make the adults have just as much fun as the kids. The pace is perfect, the message is strong and the fun never stops. This is a surefire winner, another home run for Laika.
Some of the wildest animals were never meant to be tamed. And some of them may just end up taming us.
It's wonderful that, after so long trying to get this film off the ground, it is fully allowed to truly soar.
Julianne Moore deserves a ton of credit and makes the final scene feel epic in its own way after the story that's been told, but she was the diamond in a bit of rough.
This is a decent enough holdover while we all wait for Endgame, if you're the type who can't get enough superhero action.
Much like Paul Greengrass with last year's 22 July, Maras drops us right into the center of the action and barely lets his foot off the gas long enough to let the audience catch its breath over the course of two hours.
This is a certified classic and a worthy remake of its source.
Speaking volumes about the nature vs nurture debate and inviting you to think deeply on the subject, it's the kind of emotionally-wrecking film that will be difficult to revisit, but demands to be appreciated.
Christian Petzold presents us with something that looks sunny and bright, despite seriously dark implications. It's a bold film in that regard because it always keeps you guessing about what you're seeing.
