Why Have so many bashed this movie? It's GREAT!!! (by laserdude)
I went to see this movie The Day The Earth Stood Still DTESS with the feeling of wanting to compare this one to the original. I had read many of the comments about this movie and wanted to see for myself what the negative buzz was about. I was tremendously surprised at how much I liked this movie. I think a couple of things may have misled viewers because of the coming attractions of this film. It seems like folks were probably expecting the robot GORT to go around destroying cities and being a general baaaadasss character. But what DTSS turned out to be was a really good sci-fi movie. You <more>
have to really pay attention to the dialog to get the full jist of this tricky film. For Klaatu never really has any love or care for humanity. Their goal is to wipe mankind off the face of this planet to allow other forms of life to exist as well as future beings from other worlds. And pay close attention to what he says near the end of the film when he decides to stop humankind's extinction. He said it will cost you something. It's a tricky line, but if you follow it and watch the end of the film you'll understand why the Earth stands still. I won't piece it together for everyone...see if you can figure it out. I love this movie for it's smartness. Many have complained about this being another special effects, mindless mess. It is not. The visuals enhance it...but you really have to think along with the film and sit back an enjoy. Updated June 06, 2009 . The film's ending where Kathy Bates character looks at her watch and sees that it has stopped. Then scenes are shown of trains, cars, boats stopping - suggests to me that the price humanity had to pay for their world being saved was to have all electrical and mechanical devices shut off permanently. Remember that Klaatu doesn't have any real love for the human race but begins to see the possibility of their having compassion. So since it was mankind's machinery that was effecting the planet, the best way to solve this situation without wiping humnity off the planet would be to neutralize all manmade things. Hence the title "The day The Earth Stood Still". I might have it wrong, but that's my take.
much more than just sci-fi and alien invasion! socio-critical and moving (by katharina-klug)
I'm surprised at some of the comments to say the least. I do realise that I'm the overwhelming minority by saying this but I thought the film was absolutely brilliant.The first 30 minutes were very much "science fiction". Danger from outer space, we have to save the earth, scientists are "kidnapped" to help the world, etc, etc... pretty good yet not fantastic sci-fi...Then with the "birth" of Klaatu the movie progresses into a somewhat socially critical film. There were some quotes which I remembered because they were so striking and I was surprised at <more>
the values that were conveyed: e.g. Klaatu demands to speak to the world leaders and asks the Secretary of Defense ? "Do you speak for the entire human race?" when she replies "I speak for the President of the United States". I couldn't help but wonder throughout the movie: Does America speak for the human race? I think it's a highly topical issue and subtly addressed in the movie. Another scene that I couldn't forget was the description by the alien disguised as an old Chinese: "The terrible thing is they sense which direction they are going but they are doing nothing" or something along those lines . Also memorable was the action around the little kid. Very in-depth character portrayal... the pain about his dead father and this being the reason for why he fights Klaatu until the showdown in the graveyard scene... and last but not least humanity trying to fight off the alien "invaders". Klaatu says it himself when the boy asks him whether he would fight or run away and he says "There is nothing you can do". Yet it was ironic to see how people think that there means of weaponry stands a chance against alien forces. Very smug indeed! I also liked the dramatical means that when the giant alien robot attacks earth he lifts up his arms in a surrendering pose. The effect this had on me was that I realised once more that the "invaders" are not the villains but just doing what they think is right...There are many more details worth mentioning but some specifics eluded me. All I can say is that the movie is much more than sci-fi. It's highly philosophical, moving especially the story of the young boy and well done. If that's what you expect from movies then I'd strongly recommend this film... even if you are not into science fiction! Look deeper cause there is a lot to see here!!!
I think people are missing the message within this film, saying it has none, it's an insult to the original, but they're all wrong. BOTH movies have a great message, and both are true. In the original version Klaatu comes to Earth to warn humanity of its violent nature and that they need to change. It seems to me that those who have reviewed this movie and said it has no message whatsoever obviously weren't watching the movie but more so looking for reasons to hate it. First off, with any remake or adaptation you shouldn't compare it to the original, it'll make you hate <more>
it. Like with the Spiderman movies, so many people hated those simply because it wasn't like the comics. Hello? NONE of the comic book movies are that close to the comics! In any case, the reason why they changed the movie's message for this version is because of the time we're living in. Yes it's obvious we're still a very violent race, but this version is expressing the message which the majority of humanity has STILL been ignoring! GLOBAL WARMING!!!! It's why in this version the aliens have a weapon which destroys humanity and any of their creations while the other races of Earth remain protected in an orb which acts like an ark. Oh well, guess people are going to ignore it still until it's too late. But as the professor said in this movie, humanity will change once it's at the brink of destruction.To finish off, this is a great movie, especially if you give it a chance. I don't suggest watching the original before seeing this movie. Reason goes the same as trying to read the Lord of the Rings books before watching the movies. They're so different you should just forget about the original and ENJOY the new one. Just because you enjoy or love one, doesn't mean you have to hate the other.
I have never seen the original movie and probably never will as I have been spoilt severely by overexposure to modern day special effects. I therefore have no desire to see cardboard sets and egg-carton robots with 'scary' light-bulb lasers sorry original film fans .Having nothing to compare this film to I think gives me an advantage.I wanted to see this film purely because I always enjoy watching Keanu Reeves and was interested to see him paired with Jennifer Connelly as he always seems to work the chemistry well with his leading ladies. I wasn't expecting much from this film as <more>
I'm not a huge fan of 50's sci-fi, however I was gripped from the first appearance of the space bubble and the scenes of apocalyptic Manhatten where else! to the 'nail biting to the quick' finish. I rarely watch a film that I don't criticise at least a little when it's over but this just did it for me. It entertained me from start to finish, what more can you ask.I even enjoyed Will Smith's kid's performance, he was so cute and funny standing up to Claatu.Hurrah to the cast and crew. Don't let the haters get you down, this film will do well on DVD and stand the test of time to become a modern sci-fi classic.
I loved this film. The plot is the greatest strength of this movie I know it's a remake . Everyone should watch it and try to understand it. It's more than a usual sci-fi, and has nothing to do with actionfilm as many people thought . So the first thing was the plot that I loved loved loved loved... : The next was the atmosphere. The visual world, and the sounds were really awesome. The sounds put me inside the movie, and made me feel that the characters felt. The actors were OK. They weren't the best, but they mostly showed what the story wanted. Reeves was perfect for this <more>
role I think. : The funny thing is that, i can't remember the music... maybe there wasn't so much, or I was just too impressed by the story : I'll watch it again to find this out. And then again because I loved it : . And I write it as an amateur film maker. A lot of people missed the action scenes... maybe they can't think. I think they watch too many NoNameActionmovie 999. on ChannelXZ.
Sometimes I think people write movie reviews just to dust off film lingo like "mise en scene" or "milieu" without getting bitch slapped, and/or to heap clever abuse upon filmmakers and actors rather than offer any real analysis and criticism. Given, it is frequently in the nature of most online film reviews to be negative--due to the anonymity of the criticism, and because the contrarian antithesis to the filmmaker's thesis allows a faux 'creative' indulgence for non- filmmakers--and the abuse just piles on. This is especially true of classic remakes.Having <more>
read a number of reviews here of this 2008 remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still," I see this predictably playing itself out again. If Gort were here, he'd open his visor and put an end to this vigilantism, or maybe unleash some nasty nanites into cyberspace to curb that most-aggressive of intergalactic species: the amateur film critic. Left to their own ferocity, they would subdue the world.I too was excited at the prospect of seeing this film remade. Then, having read some early reviews, I was expecting an apocalyptic melt-down of a disappointment. But I still went to the theater and now, having watched it during its premier general release here in the US, I was pleasantly surprised at what a really excellent remake this was. It's no easy task to take a superb classic like this one and reintroduce it to audiences, and I think it speaks volumes about the gutsiness of the director and producers to pull this off.The point of remakes is never to make "better" films than the originals. All films are locked to their times, even "timeless" ones. Rather, the point is to uproot the salient qualities of the original story and then cultivate them for present-day audiences. Sometimes--in fact, often- -what develops bears little resemblance to the original, as well it should. Whereas the original "Day" was largely about the Cold War, this newer version is about our planet and what we are doing to it. And frankly, it's message is more important than ever.The majority of criticism against the film here at IMDb is that it was either not like the original, or that it was too similar. And while this may look like "criticism," it is overly simplistic and does not challenge us--nor filmmakers--to dig for something more valuable. It is fascinating that three recent films with an environmental message "Inconvenient Truth," "The Happening," and this one have been gang-raped by corporate media critics. Besides the obvious insult to kleptocratic sponsors, could it be that relocating antagonists from the familiar realm of monsters, ghosts and silver-suited spacemen is just too unsettling for our twenty-first century psyches? If so, then this is one of the redeeming qualities of this remake: it forces audiences to rethink just who the bad guy s are. Walt Kelly, whose 1970 poster for Earth Day stated, "We have met the enemy and it is us," readily comes to mind.To the point: ignore all the naysayers out there who whine that this version is "not like the original," or that is "trying too hard to be like the original." Go see this remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" with an open, unbiased mind, and enjoy it. No, it won't tell you what to think about the questions it unleashes, but it will provide a most satisfying movie-going experience and give you a very great deal to think upon. My one complaint and the only reason I won't give it ten stars : the last two lines in the film!
Just saw the movie at the screening for reporters and came here to see opinions of other people and was surprised to find none. I guess Croatia had the first screening of the movie. wow : Anyways, I didn't watch the original movie from 1951 but have a feeling all the main points of the plot are there. I respect that but also feel this is the main reason why movie is so one sided and has a lot more potential to it. First third of the movie is paced really nice, but trough second and last part tempo kinda slows down and you pretty much know exactly what's gonna happen. This movie is all <more>
about big message for humanity but the message it self is poorly developed. Acting is very good and main role is perfect for Keanu Reeves, being a neutral alien with no emotions : don't get me wrong, i love his work . Jason Smith who plays the kid will remind you why you sometimes hate the little brats.Story it self has some major flaws biggest of them being: aliens have no idea what is love and they are not that intelligent but I am guessing all of these were taken from the book/original movie and after all, this is a remake. It would be much better if they had loosen up a bit and added some deeper sens to the whole experience. This way, I'm guessing, there will only be a small group of people who will really appreciate this work. However, from technical point of view, this movie goes pretty far. It's shot good, sfx are almost perfect, but music is kinda dull and editing should also be better.All this critic and such a high rating? Yeah.. well, the movie has atmosphere and besides all it will hold you down to your seat through whole show. I also didn't check my watch during it, which is a very good sign, so at the end I would recommend this film that finally fills a part of the big hole in fiction genre.
Everyone Comparing To 1950 needs to RELAX! (by mbutt2)
I've never seen the 1950s version of this movie. However, just because I have never seen it does not mean my vote doesn't count. Just hear me out. I think the movie was a good movie to just sit back, relax, and watch. It keeps you entertained, but with a message involved. From what I hear, the original keeps a message to the movie as well. I've seen a lot of movies and this was not as bad as people are making it out to be. People have to understand that the 1950's version was made 50 years ago. Come on people. Hollywood is running out of ideas. Therefore they decided to remake <more>
this movie with better special effects. Is that so bad? You have to look at a movie in the eyes of people today, not back in the 50s. All I'm saying is give this movie a chance and stop bashing on it so much. To be honest, after seeing this movie, I'm curious to see what the original was like.In conclusion, to all the 1950s version lovers, this movie will make people wanna see the original. Go take a load off and watch a movie for what it is now, not what it used to be. Enjoy!
A Better Solution to an Old Problem (by b-p-dixon)
So far every review I've read has been negative about this movie. To each-his-own.This movie recreates the same problem humanity being a threat to the world, itself, and the universe but gives a better and more mature solution to the problem than the original film.In the 1951 film, the best solution that the writers could come up with was forcing humanity to "behave" under the threat of violence from a force greater than us. The 2008 version of this film gives a much more sophisticated answer: that being the beauty of the human condition and the need for a people to face the <more>
"precipice" in order to embrace necessary change.Although this solution may have been better served by not being so overt, it still shows the growth in our thinking. The simple fact that the first version's solution was merely a new threat of violence, while the remake's solutions was to see that the beauty of our human condition makes our existence meaningful, made the remake worthwhile.The role that Jaden Smith played was tremendously annoying. But I think that was the goal. He was the archetype for what mankind is: an annoying, untrusting, and overly-simplistic child-race. Although his sudden change into "maturity" was anything but smooth, he again represented the degree to how abruptly mankind would need to "grow-up" if we ever face similar situations.I think this movie was an amazing look into the ongoing development and maturing of mankind. It shows that even our creative side Hollywood has grown up since the original film. It shows that humanity doesn't need a greater threat of violence to make us mature; we merely need to look at the beauty of our human dilemma, and to draw from that strength to grow.Idealistic? Probably. But hey - that's why it's a movie.
