(it) wrote: This film was a great movie about heroic men many have forgotten. The story of the U.S.S. Indianapolis has been meant to be told for a very long time and I am glad that it now has. The story goes along great with the film. It gives a great portrayal of how things were back then. The acting was superb with many great actors. Nicolas Cage gives a outstanding performance. This movie hit home because my great uncle was one of the many men who was killed on the U.S.S Indianapolis. The movie shows the sacrifices and the suffering those men had to endure. This isn't a movie just about sharks. It shows the history of the U.S.S. Indianapolis I reccommend this movie who anyone who is at all interested in United States history.

But I do want to say two things about the film. Nargis Fakhri - please know that you have the potential to ruin a perfectly good film. John Abraham - I applaud your guts for producing films like Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe, but I can't help but wonder if your latest production could have greatly benefitted from an actor that has less visceral and more intellectual muscle. I wonder if an actor like Kay Kay Menon could have injected in Vikram the kind of brooding intensity that the film really needed for us to care about what happened. Instead, we watched, simply waiting for the next thing to happen, without much emotional investment.

It was too torturous, they ruined her eye and her Eva REALLY BADLY and Shinji just got even more hateful by going crazy, crying, and even choking her at the end (gladly, she didn't die).I do not get the hype for this. The movie is boring. Asuka is what made the series better, I would've got bored and I did skip the episodes if she wasn't in them. So, I guess I do not get this movie or maybe I have to watch the series again.So, now we got to suffer an hour of Shinji's pansy butt. Like in the series, he did get more likable towards the end when we learn about his past. I did like Misato more, too. Rei had a more decent ark, but I don't like the end of the world thing at the end. No one else I really could care much for.This movie was just creepy and violent. I was thinking that this would be a great film but it was just very over-hyped. This movie just had me screaming at the computer through. The characters are quite different, Asuka is worrying about her mother and I was wondering if like I heard, it may be because her mother's soul was there or she was just relying on her to try her best to get through this hard battle but she had a really evil face on sometimes during the battle, I understand that this type of facial expression was new for its time but it still looked too evil. Misato seemed to have been in love with Shinji, she might've been this way in the series, too. And I don't understand Rei's arc of being above the world while it was destroyed.I also did not like the new facial expressions for Asuka representing the scenes in the anime like when she wakes Shinji up, she's now more scary and hateful than she was likable and funny.I also do not like the live-action combination in this, even though it did have a good message about reality in dreams.The jazzy song at the end of the first half was okay but it was smoother than Fly Me To The Moon.Gladly, it did not have Hikari in it but it still could do better than this.
(it) wrote: Similar in structure (at a very basic level) to Groundhog Day and the more recent Source Code, Retroactive doesn't have the same humor or intelligence of either of those films. The set-up feels rushed, mostly do to a weak script. There's some energetic action scenes, but the back-story is treated so slightly, that nothing has much weight to it. The fast pace does help cover for some of the silliness, but in the end you have something that doesn't add up to much. Had they had a more convincing bad guy (James Belushi isn't at all intimidating), it definitely would have helped a great deal. 2.5/5 Stars
