Director: Luc Besson
Original Release: 2010
Choice: My Wife's
My Overall Rating: 3 stars out of 5
I'd explain more of the plot but that would ruin the fun for anyone who decides to watch. Suffice to say, the narrative is absurd without apology. The film is well cast with quirky character-actor types. The visuals - mostly live action but with CGI for the movie's supernatural and prehistoric elements - are dazzling. Louise Bourgoin is infinitely charming in the lead. This is really a very solid picture, but only a 3 for me. I don't feel a strong need to watch it again, though I have a feeling it will come up again in our rotation.
