SKY CAPTAIN is a highly stylized sci-fi movie, having the look of 1930's sepia toned SUPERMAN cartoon. In spirit it's a take on those early adventure serials such as FLASH GORDON.Right away, when we see the 'Hindenburg III' dock on the top of the Empire State Building, we throw all realism out the window, which is fine, particularly when all the giant robots show up in Manhattan and storm the streets. Jude Law is the overly confident Captain and Gwyneth Paltrow is his old flame and love interest, Polly Perkins, intrepid news reporter. She'll do just about anything for a good story.She finds out that scientists are being abducted for some mysterious purpose, which leads her and the Captain around the world. They do find the reason for their disappearances-and it involves a madman and a huge 'Noah's Ark' type of rocket. It's located on an island teeming with prehistoric creatures, which gives a nod to the original KING KONG, particularly when they have to cross over a fallen tree spanning a crevasse.There's so many different things going on, so many cool images, that you just kind of go along with it.Pure, escapist fun.
