The Day The Earth Stood Still

Starring my favourite actor, Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly, The Day The Earth Stood Still is a remake of the 1951 version. Keanu Reeves play Klaatu, the alien who came to the Earth with unknown intentions. He had lost some weight and was looking as stunning as ever (though a bit wrinkles here and there). And when dressed in suit, he can melt any girl's heart haha!

Back to the movie, my comment is, highly extremely very disappointing. The script itself was not exactly well-written, as the story flow at some points were very coarse and unrefined, especially towards the end when Klaatu suddenly changed his mind and decided to give humans another chance. (Am I revealing too much?) And the huge destroying robot, for some reason it reminded me of a Doraemon story. It was pretty lame to me.

There were not any oooooohhhs and aaaaaahhhhs in this film. In fact, there is so little to talk about you would straight away forget you ever watched this the moment you walk out of the cinema.

In conclusion, besides the script I have nothing else to complain about. But then again, the script is about all of it, isn't it?
