Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004)


When the world needs help they call on Sky Captain and the world definitely needs help. After giant robots begin attacking major cities from all over the world, it’s up to Sky Captain to find out why. With his partner Polly Perkins, together they uncover a dark secret about the mysterious Dr. Totenkopf and his sinister plan to destroy the world. But perhaps there is a deeper plot than what meets the eye. Set in 1939, this entire film was filmed on a digital backlot and some of the imagery (reminiscent of reto-futurism and German expressionism) is simply beautiful and stunning. Everything from the performances and the dialogue makes the film seem as though it was made during the Golden Age of Hollywood and that’s what loved. It reminded you of what a movie should be, filled with action, fantasy and romance.
