Enchanted, a review by RossRoy


Enchanted
Alphabet Marathon - July 2010 - Entry #11
WHAT THEY SAY


MY THOUGHTS
Nice little twist on the Snow White story. Nothing much more to say. It's pretty much a standard Disney fare. I found Amy Adams incredibly yummy in this movie.

Fun and entertaining little family movie.

Plot:
Japanese pop stars Gackt and HYDE star in this wild hybrid of futuristic science fiction, John Woo-style gunplay, and Gothic vampire horror. 'Moon Child' follows a group of childhood friends as they advance in a futuristic criminal underworld. Sho (Gackt) feels he is doomed to walk in his idol Kei's (HYDE) footsteps as a vampire with the gift of eternal life and the curse of blood thirst. Over time, their tight friendship becomes corrupted because of their rivalry and love for the same woman. Filmmaker Takahisa Zeze bring a stylized sting to the blood draining and hyper violent proceedings.

My Thoughts:
I've got this one in a set with 2 others movies (Suicide Club & 2LDK) and that's a good thing. This movie is not good at all! The suppose vampire spend is time to cry and he is so effeminate that makes it really hard to be convince of his toughness (think of the most stereotype emo possible and you get the picture). The principal actors are suppose to be Japanese pop stars and if they all look like that I prefer to pass my turn. At the start of the movie one vampire died because of the sun, but the other vampire are not affected at all by the sun (if you want to change the mythology it's ok but at least be consistent they die or they don't). Never in the film one vampire take a bit on another person, they fight with gun!!! They are affraid of gun because it's hurt them, but they are a bunch of cry baby so it's not really surprising. The director use the same level effect for the fight (slow-fast, slow bullets,...) than Uwe Boll but saying that is an insult to the Dr. Boll. The films find another way to be insulting with a bad slow cover of My Bonnie (the original by Tony Sheridan is a great rock'n roll song). The movie is way too long (not because it's long I have watch 5 hours movie and apreciate them), a lot of stuff happen just to fill the running time. A lost of my time, but at least the 2 others movies in the set was good.

Rating : 1/5 (Just because "Lizzie Borden" was worst)
