Babylon AD

Do not watch this movie. If you have watched it, I pity your wasted time.

It is utter crap and barely makes C-grade. Even the director, Mathieu Kassovitz, hated it! He complained that the producers and studio (20th Century Fox) screwed over the film.

Yet I paid 8 good SG dollars to watch it. But Why?

There are two reasons: one, I’ve always had a soft spot for goth-punk films. Two, marketing. The marketing guys salvaged it by screening the only amazing scene – an amazing explosion that curved around the lead actress while leaving her unscathed.

I can go on about how bad it is. But I’ll rant about something else instead…

I’ve about had it up to my wattlely neck with bad remakes of printed stories – particularly speculative fiction stories! For example, the movie I am Legend, with Will Smith as the lead actor, was a horrendous remake of Richard Matheson’s book of the same name. The movie ended off on a happy note that "Humans can hope because of a doctor who gave his life for the race". The book however was significantly less upbeat, more ironic; hence more meaningful.

Ughhh…. such blasphemy! It makes me want to tear my hair off and howl at the moon, but not before sacrificing the producers’ souls to some sodomite demon! Damn them all!

Film Synopsis (from IMdb): In the near future, Toorop (Vin Diesel) is a mercenary who takes the job of escorting a woman named Aurora from Central Asia to New York. While he thinks this is just an ordinary mission, he gradually finds out that his guest is carrying twins that have the potential to become the next Messiahs – and everybody wants to get their hands on them.
