''If the Earth dies, you die. If you die, the Earth survives.''

A remake of the 1951 classic sci-fi film about an alien visitor and his giant robot counterpart who visit Earth.

Keanu Reeves: Klaatu

To start with I never had any major expectations upon seeing The Day the Earth stood Still. Initially it's an effect laden disaster movie disguised as an ... read more

"If the Earth dies, you die. If you die, the Earth survives."

A botched, superfluous modernisation of Robert Wise's timeless science fiction gem of the same name, The Day the Earth Stood Still is an overdone and super-sized special effects extravaganza as well as a prime example of cinematic blasphemy. Instead of the 1950s mindset which pervaded the original feature (Cold War, fear ... read more

The Day the Earth Stood Still had the potential to be a decent sci-fi movie. The visuals and musical score created an atmosphere of foreboding but these weren't enough to make for a truly enjoyable movie.

"9.7. Alkuperäisessä versiossa superälykäs avaruusolio ihmetteli asioita, joten odotin jopa jotain elokuvalta, jossa Keanu Reevesillä on potentiaalia ihmetellä leivänpaahtimia ja rakkauden konseptia. Mitään tällaista ei kuitenkaan tapahdu, vaan Keanu tietää valmiiksi kaiken ja kaikki on 2000-lukulaisen coolia ja rankkaa - myös sinistä ja todella mitäänsanomattoman näköistä. Muistin juuri, miksi en katso 2000-luvun Hollywoodia."
