    I'm not so sure. It looks pretty, but I'm not buying a pack of crying, 90 lb. prostitutes as being the woop ass saviors of the world.

    It's babes, trench warfare, WWII, dragons, futuristic stuff, samurai, giant robots, dark creepy asylum, noir, art deco, and Japanese influenced stuff. It's like a bunch of ca.org sketchbooks thrown together on screen.

    But yeah, the writing will probably be horrible.

    Haha. I had the same thought when I watched this. All common CA.org stuff put together into one movie.

    set to the music of Lords of Acid...

    I'm pretty sure a group of high school buddies and I thought of this movie in the late nineties. I agree that this will probably be a very bad film.However, 18 year old me hopes its awesome.

    I like this design approach! I just hope it won't taste like ice cream + chips on pizza.

    Looks like every fanboy's wetdream archive rolled into one movie. I cant say I'm not intrigued.

    Looks hot and exciting. Hopefully they're all good actresses and not just pretty faces.

    New trailer, looks cheerfully mental and/or stylised nonsense.

    I won't lie, chances are good that I will have to watch this..

    I have a feeling that this movie will be a bit rubbish. I'm am very cynical these days when it comes to films. Mainly because I'm frequently disappointed by them, however I am interested in seeing how this turns out.

    Guys, this movie is from Zack Snyder the master of visual badassery. This can't be bad film! Even the children film Legend of Guardians was great in terms of visualization.

    This is a phantom film among my friends, I saw the trailer long time ago and I thought it looks just amazing in terms of design and visualization, but no one actually talked about it. I remember we spent whole night talking about films where stuff goes boom and no one mentioned it. Then I showed them the trailer... Anyone knows who concepted stuff for it, or it won't be known until the film is released? Anyway, I'm so buying the art of book when it comes out.

    Respectful disagreement:

    There needs to be something beyond visuals for it to be a good film. I'm not saying that it has to be smart, or even make total sense, but there needs to be something satisfying and fun in the story and character arcs. Even if the visuals are great, if I'm constantly getting annoyed by dull dialog or bad storytelling decisions, I won't enjoy it, and I certainly won't consider it to be a good movie. If visuals are all it offers, I'll save my money and just browse my inspiration folder for 140 minutes.

    And as for claiming that it can't be a bad film because Zack Snyder made it, in my opinion that argument is undermined by the fact that he made Watchmen. It thought it was pretty mediocre as a film, and pretty darn bad and extraordinarily misjudged as an adaptation of the book. I loved the hell out of 300, though, so if this movie has some of that in it I'll be happy to watch it. I can't pass judgment on Guardians because I didn't see it.

    Same here man, hoping (but doubting) the writing/story will be watchable, nothing puts me off more than a movie that makes me roll my eyes constantly.

    Visuals look amazing though, giant samurai with minigun ftw!

    I feel conflicted... I'm not even sure if I'm going to see this one. At the very least, I hope there's some story to it and it's just not an over-sexualized trope of violence. Less slow-mo would be good too.

    I liked 300... Didn't see Watchmen. I'm still disgusted at the screen-writer's reaction to the fans of the book.

    I got the impression that nowdays everything has visual badassery. The thing is usually after watching such movie you forget about it after few hours.

    I'm sure this will be fun on one level, but right now, the trailers look a little over-egged. Like they are shouting at you - YOU WILL ENJOY THIS MOVIE OR ELSE! It feels like trying to watch three or four TVs with different shows on at the same time. Where am I supposed to look! Interesting how false eyelashes are mandatory in this particular asylum.

    Babydoll has terrible trigger discipline. She's going to hurt someone.

    It looks very trashy, but not in a good way. I was very divided by the last movie I saw of his, 300. On the one hand, visually impressive and exciting, but on the other, it felt like I was watching a piece of fascist propaganda, depicting a master race of fearless muscled strongmen who kill the weak and sick at birth, fighting endless hordes of disabled, mutant brown skins.

    Yeah... im back from the movies and it was a pile of poo.

    i tried explaining why it was a pile of poo. but this quote from io9 review pretty much explains how i felt.

    The thing is, director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) has a feel for genre. He understands the crappiest aspects of it, anyway - the scenes of CGI-fluffed action interspersed with inexplicable infodumps and character development signaled by costume changes. And he's ably demonstrated his mastery by pouring everything he knows into a single, assaultive genre mashup flick. The worst part? He decided to turn the whole cruddy package into an art flick that comments on itself. Which means that all the fighter planes and zombie soldiers and stylized strippers are intensely boring.
    though i would love to see the concept art from the movie

    I wanted this film to be good sooo badly, but apparently Snyder pushed it to hard over the edge of ridiculousness. Let's see if I can enjoy just the visuals.
    But I have to say, 300 wasn't that good as well in terms of character development or plot, it was just a badass movie to look at.

    I follow Massawyrm a lot on Spill. It actually takes a lot to make him mad at a movie. So my jaw nearly dropped when he said he had the urge to walk out of the theater. That doesn't happen very often.

    Like, I knew it wasn't going to be good but I had no idea the movie reviewers would slaughter it. I almost want to sneak into this movie just to see how awful it is. I refuse to pay for it.
