Response to Go See It!

The wife will enjoy it more than you, I suspect, but I wouldn't actively stop anyone from seeing it. I still stand by my comments from a few weeks ago - the patches and buttons and bows don't detract from the story - and the acting is good.

It's sort of like watching the Clone Wars movie. I was really turned off for the first 45 minutes or so, by the absolute idiocy of the military "strategy" involved - you've basically got a battalion of men with heavy artillery set up in the middle of a city and the tactics here for these guys in body armour and carrying directed energy weapons is to advance Civil-War-style in mass formations. Ludicrous. Once I reminded myself to turn my brain off and just enjoy the silly James Bond dialogue and the riffing among the characters, and realize it was written for kids, it was a lot more fun to watch.
