Exactly! I just came back from the movie and I was totally blown away. One reviewer on "At The Movies" said he wasn't impressed by the SFX. What impressed him was the characters and how they slowly became the team of explorers/adventurers we've come to know and love. While I found that the special effects (like the aforementioned reviewers counterpart) to be benchsetting, I agree that more than anything, this was a powerfully character oriented film. The acting was spot on. The writing was was fresh--without the humor feeling forced or corny. An excellent job! An exellent film. As one critic said, it's the film of 2009!
