Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004) (English)

               Director   : Kerry Conran
               Genre      : Action,Adventure,Mystery, Sci-Fi
               Cast        : Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Angelina Jolie

      What do you expect from a movie when it has got some of the best star-actors of hollywood cinema?.Well that's exactly what you get,a good thrilling entertainer.What made me force to watch this movie was actually two actors who played two of my favorite characters-Pepper potts(Gwyneth Paltrow) of IronMan Series and Mr.Watson(Jude Law) of Sherlock Holmes series-coming together in a movie.Another coincidence is both the actors played secondary characters to a character played by Robert Downey Jr.(Sherlock Homes and Iron Man).
        So let's get into the plot,It's the story of a reporter who teams up with a pilot in search of the origin of flying robots which keep attacking the New York city.The reporter's role is played by beautiful and charming Gwyneth Paltrow.And the fearless pilot who fights the bots is played by Jude Law.And Angelina Jolie has done a brief important cameo appearance in the movie.
       I don't know what kept this movie away from popular movie channels.I haven't seen this movie in Television and never heard of it before i actually found it from an IMDB page featuring Jude Law's movies.May be it's name which is unnecessarily long(Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow),or may be the total style and look given to the movie which in some parts make the CG looks like low grade.But i should say for a movie which is released in 2004,CG is at it's best here.If you are regular movie watcher or a die-hard movie lover,you should never miss this movie.It's a must watch.Because this movie is unique.You will never find another one like this.So don't miss it.
