This was a film that was eagerly awaited. All star cast, special effects that made each sub-villain something to behold and it was all coming from a much loved and respected and long running comic strip.. so why did it stink?One word. Madonna.
If Warren Beatty had a brain in his head he would have realised that if you're going to rely on Madonna's star pull to get people in the audience, you're not going to get anyone above the age of 15 to attend. You might sell a lot of soundtrack CDs, but little else.
And if he had a brain he might have realised that focussing the entire movie not on the character it was named after, but rather a sub-sub-sub character was not going to please the purists.
And if he had an ounce of common sense he'd see that Madonna had hijacked this entire production, spent half the film singing or slutting and generally took what was going to be greatness and turned it into a music video.
Bah. Nothing more to say than bah.Avoid it. You see the best bits in the trailer.
