Dances With Smurfs.

What would you get if you filmed an average movie-of-the-week Syfy screenplay using 300 million bucks?

I recommend going to the theater 40 minutes late. I swear that you will miss nothing important. I watched for over an hour before I found something that kept me in my seat. I now understand all the reviews that say it’s not very good, but wow it was great! I saw things I’ve never seen before.

Zoe Saldana, playing the part of Smurfette, absolutely makes this movie work. Without her, there is nothing. The guy that played Jarhead Smurf was really lame. Ripley turned in a great job in a lousy part, and Ana Lucia was tough when it counted. But it was all about Zoe, she’s fantastic. Even through all the mo-cap, she shines.

The end of the movie steals from Star Wars, Aliens, and Return of the Jedi. But let’s not talk about the plot. When we’re flying around Smurfland, this flick is awesome.
