This is definitely a fun movie. The story relies heavily on gadgets — which can often ruin a film (witness Wild Wild West) — but it thankfully doesn’t insult the audience’s intelligence by trying to explain how it is possible that the the titular character carries a gas-powered automatic weapon in the 1880’s. It is also fun to see just how many movies this one borrows from or pays homage to. Some scenes seem to be lifted directly out of the James Bond or Indiana Jones franchises, and the premise of the story itself is recycled from innumerable films like Men In Black or this year’s Hellboy. This shouldn’t stop you from seeing it, however. Check your brain at the door and enjoy the ride.
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
