Anyway, this movie isn't just pulpy, it is Grower's Style! All the pulp. Anyone who is into pulp sci-fi stories needs to see this movie - z_gryphon, that means you/ :-)
Really, the movie is a lot of fun. The characters are archtypical archetypes all the way, as they should be in this kind of story. None of this hero with a dark past shit - the hero is a HERO. The world is very black and white, as it should be in this kind of story. It is a fun movie and it doesn't take itself too seriously. I also enjoy how, in the spirit of good pulp, they never comment on the radical difference in tech levels. The P-40 Warhawk is the hot shit fighter - but the villain appears to have anti-gravity flying platforms. Who cares!
See this movie on the big screen.
