Movie Review: Upside Down (2012)

Get up for the down stroke

Adam and Eden live on two worlds which are connected yet remain separated.  They fall in love.  Although the idea of the story is in itself pretty fantastic and although the visuals are a real treat, overall the film only manages to achieve mediocrity at best.  The clumsy dialogue and melodramatic performances weigh this film down horribly.  It was actually difficult to believe that the three big names in this film, Jim Sturgess, Kirsten Dunst, and Timothy Spall, are the same great actors that I've seen in several other great films (Across the Universe, Melancholia, Harry Potter, etc) In general, big budget sci-fi, and other genre films, are rarely very good since they are often dumbed down for a wider audience. 

Upside Down doesn't know which way is up and only gets 2 out of 5 Poblanos!
