I know what you’re thinking about this movie. First, it looks gorgeous. That’s right. That’s because it is. Director Joseph Kosinski has an eye for special effects – have you seen Tron: Legacy? Second, it does look like a live-action version of Wall-E.
Tom Cruise is a guy who comes back to Earth to clean it up after the apocalypse. That’s essentially the beginning of Wall-E. Then everything goes to hell when he meets Morgan Freeman and his merry band of post-apocalyptic space humans.
I gotta say, I’m down for this movie. It’s not going to be spectacular or anything, but it looks like a serviceable entertainer at the beginning of the year.
