ONE FOR US SCI FI FREAKS :),
This review is from: Paul [DVD] (DVD)
This was a bit of a slow burner at first and after half an hour I was starting to wonder what all the fuss was about. But it turns out I needn't of worried as it was brilliant. Loads of in jokes, star wars, Aliens, star trek, Indy, Close Encounters, too many to name really. But it certainly isn't all about in jokes. The story centres around 2 geeky mates on a trip to the US to travel around all the sci fi sites when low and behold they bump into a reall alien. Paul was played excellently by Seth Rogan, the perfect match. The CG was top notch on him as well. There is nothing not to like about him, and part of me hopes they do a sequal, but another part of me worries about such ventures.
One of the bravest things about the movie is them tounching on Evolution and God, or lack there of a God. Bearing in mind this is really made for a US audience I think this might of upset some hard line christians. This make sme even happier haha. Great film only losing 1 star due to it's slow start. Defo one to watch and one to watch more than once :)
