| I'm sorry I love it, I just can't help it...
This movie is somewhat the opposite of "Sin City". Sin City was a movie liked by everyone and made me feel stupid for not liking it. Sky Captain is the opposite I guess, despised by everyone and made me feel immature by liking it. But the movie is just too good not to like, sorry guys.

It gives the great atmosphere of old cinema plus comic books, and it does so perfectly using flying funny looking evil robots, strange laser guns, and comic-book like dialog. And it was the first time I said to myself "wow, Angelina Jolie is actually a good actress". She's nothing like her boob-flashing movies.

And story? For me a story is good as long as it's not boring. And this is a comic-book adaptation, it was MEANT to be silly, and it didn't bother me at all since I was busy enjoying the film. If u're a stiff businessman with no shred of child imagination and if u even hated Star Wars saying "hey, this can't happen in real life", then don't watch this movie. If u're a comic-books fan, watch it and love it. It has a great atmosphere, great visual effects, and it's exciting. And it's fun to watch.

Trivia

The names of people who worked on this movie appeared several times. On the first issue of "The Chronicle" that reports the docking of the Hindenburg III at the Empire State Building, multiple headlines contain references to Kerry Conran and brother Kevin Conran (headline "Conran Ministry Force Deal"), Darin Hollings ("Dr. Hollings Speaks"), Omar McClinton ("McClinton seeks license to halt sanctions"), Brian LeachZack Petroc ("Leach and Petroc Break Over Budget"), and Stephen Lawes ("Lawes Held Ready to Aid U.S. Peace Action"). In the issue of "The Chronicle" with the headline "Giant Machines Steal Refineries", the article is shown to be written by Marsha Oglesby, one of the executive producers. Although dim lighting makes it practically invisible in this movie, there is a list next to the giant wall map in the Flying Legion base, which contains the last names of several crew members.


Quotes

Hindenburg announcer: Attention. Please prepare for docking procedure.


Goofs

The German rocket's display showing its height contains three spelling mistakes: "VERSTARKER" (booster, amplifier) should be written with A-umlaut and the plural of kilometer is simply kilometer, without s at the end, and since nouns are capitalized in German it should actually read "Kilometer".


Crazy Credits

Laurence Olivier is given a major on-screen credit, despite only being in the film through archive footage and having another actor voice his character's lines.
