Keanu is back as alien, Klaatu. Good character for his wooden/cool expressions. That’s not really true. He did scowl in Constantine and he made The Matrix cool.
Rottentomatoes – The Day the Earth Stood Still
The poster has 1/2 of his face, with green iris. His character actually has brown eyes in the movie or did I see wrong colour?
I supposed the green is for environment or the bubble. The orb is not scary at all. You’d never guess what Klaatu had to do if you had never read the review or saw the original movie before.
I had to read Wikipedia to understand more about the simplified but huge Iron Man.
Jennifer is gorgeous. Her eyes are so sparkly. Son of Will Smith is not the usual adorable kid character.
I don’t get why it’s 18PG. Because of alien idea?
Opinion/ contains Spoiler (Ctrl+Alt+Del):
It’s a great message. Klaatu comes to Earth to save Earth. Not humans. Earth. Humans had been destroying Earth & therefore, humans have to be eliminated. If we are still polluting Earth, we deserve what Klaatu & GORT dish out.
The ending is anti-climax. If there were more scenes before Klaatu depart… maybe a teary goodbye? Nah, Klaatu is not that emotional.
