Everybody in the movie is excellent, right down to a cameo from Hal Holbrook that reminds me of the "abyss" speech he gives to Charlie Sheen in Wall Street. Stallone is excellent in a non action role and this is a movie well worth renting. It's currently on FLIX, which is part of the Showtime package.
(br) wrote: Read that Alexandre Aja had the rights to this, so I tried to get back into the original and checked out the recent OVAs. The animation on this first series and the movie sequel/character reboot is fantastic, with opening montages like early James Bond gone space opera in the way that Moonraker failed at spectacularly. Terasawa's character design mixes Leone with Bond in an overt yet fun way, and the creatures and villains have a similar but nasty appeal. The baddies are not that distinct, however, and after Cobra's origin is covered he becomes too much of a badass to identify with. It's similar to Goku: Midnight Eye, in that sense and the hokey one-liners and casual sexism will test even the staunchest of Bond fans. The recent OVA and Cobra The Psychogun has a lot of weak cgi replacing the fine animation of the original. And despite the fast pace, the repeated character templates and tracking shots get a little old until the villain Crystal Boy appears. That design holds up, and presents some real challenge to Cobra's victory. Perhaps a live action version will do this and Lady Armaroid well, but lose the duck-like comic relief mechanics.

After a slow start involving a miniature horse, this picture becomes chock full of Ray Harryhausen stop motion special effects of various dino-battles and circus scenes. It also conjures memories of King Kong, which I guess is appropriate since the original concept came from the same creator. James Fanciscus would go directly from the Valley of Gwangi to Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Someone should mash the two together since they both have lots of footage in arid regions. Come to think of it, maybe it should be called Allosaurus goes to Church.

While this is a good adapted screenplay the movie itself is not great. For one thing the acting is not great. Greg and the parents were pretty alright but everyone else barely tried I felt. There were really unnecessary special effects too that were really obnoxious actually. There's a scene with a snowy background but it's a painfully obvious green screen and just stuff like that. Some of the jokes also felt really forced since this is adapted from a book and it was almost like they felt they HAD to have the same joke. There were some really awkward jokes in there that were really cringeworthy actually and it really fell flat sometimes. A parent can go into this movie and enjoy it for sure, it's pretty entertaining sometimes but kids will most likely really dig it. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a slightly above average kids movie that stays faithful to its source material. C+
