On this film, he is assisted by a Helen Benson (Jennifer Connely), a microbiologist who works at Princeton University and her step son (Jaden Smith) which turned out to be human being savior by changing Keanu’s decision.
This is another attraction for the movie-goers. Those who have watched the original TDTESS will want to see this new version, while the new generations will be amazed not only by the long title but also for what’s inside the movie.
In my opinion, there are 2 setbacks on the technical part of TDTESS. One: the metal, destroy-everything-but-earth insects. I mean, when I first saw Keanu in this special gel suit, plus the ever mysterious spheres, I was really eager to know how they destroy human being (or even the earth at first). Upon realizing on the insects, I was like “ek eleh”. If only they could come up with something else. Non-metal destroyer to be exact.
The other setback is the gigantic, one red-and-moving eyed, statue-like creature. It came along with the giant sphere at Central Park as Keanu’s protector and the source of the metal insects. Again, they could really make it in a form of fog or something, not like the old version of it, come on! I mean, Proton would not be producing the same Saga every year, right?
The robot reallyyyy look familiar..
Other than that, I must salute Keanu for his marvelous act, especially his Chinese accent. This is another must-see movie as the storyline is perfectly narrated, the idea of ‘human is not the owner of earth’ has creatively manipulated, the fascinating effects and of course, the great line of casts. If only they could set a more thrilling ending, this movie would reach the number 5 on my evaluation meter. So with that I give TDTESS 4 out of 5.
