The Day Keanu Stood Still - The Day the Earth Stood Still review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
26/03/2010

Oh Dear, If you liked the long slow pauses (as if thinking hard) in The Matrix this film is for you. It seems that After his first few attempts into SciFi Keanu found a formula that worked for him in Matrix and is sticking to it. I appreciate that he is supposed to be an alien in human form but if all aliens have no emotion then we as a planet, and SciFi enthusiasts, are stuffed.

Dont waste your time. The film is all in the hype.

rubbish - The Day the Earth Stood Still review by CP Customer

So much hype about this film so decided to give it a look.

Its a film of Keanu Reeves walking slowly mostly towards the camera, in a suit.

Typical Amercians against the aliens

The original is a masterpiece this is a cheap remake.

Not original not special watch the original not this rubbish.

The Destruction of our planet - The Day the Earth Stood Still review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
28/08/2009

Enjoyed this film immensely as it was very realistic given the Earth's present predicament. The real downside to this film is it only related itself to one of Earth's major problems at the moment whereas it could have at least related to the fact that the world will not be able to feed itself with the immense increase in population as well as the many other human falacies that continue to amaze yet the human race fails to do anything to close up the loop holes that creates these falacies. A good watch with a heart warming ending. Particularly liked the bit where the alien answers the scientists canumdrum whereby John Cleese asks the alien if it will really work! Reminds me of another film but cannot remember which film? The film still leaves you wandering if the human race can save the planet although we will probably do what we did before? A select number of human beings or their essances will be transported to a new world to recommence the cycle all over again! Subject of another film?
