Terrible remake, original vastly superior
Review By: Rob Rating: Date: 2015-08-10
***Intriguing, Spiritual, Insightful, Moving***

“The Day the Earth Stood Still” (2008) is an intriguing, powerful and even moving modern sci-fi blockbuster. I particularly like the symbolism: Klaatu=Christ, GORT=YaHWeH, as well as the numerous biblical references: Noah’s Ark, the death plague, human beings trying to put God in a box literally, the sacrificial nature of agape love, etc. In other words, the film tackles subjects of great depth that every human being can relate to whatever their belief system. This itself separates it from the usual idiotic blockbuster fare.

Now let me address some common criticisms (please see the film first before reading further due to **SPOILERS**):

The kid is initially quite annoying but this is understandable as he’s an archetype for what humankind is: an annoying, untrusting, simpleminded child-race. His sudden change into “maturity” represents how humanity needs to “grow-up.” This helps make sense of the kid’s repeated statements about killing Klaatu, which were magnified by the media’s slander of Klaatu as a dangerous escaped convict. Klaatu’s strange actions helped feed this negative mindset. As for the kid’s dead father, the boy was only 9 years old and understood his father to be a soldier. Why wouldn’t he have a mythical impression that he killed ‘bad guys’ for a living, likely with his bare hands?

The judgment of mass human destruction was already set for the earth after hundreds of years of observation, including an Asian scout who lived with humans for 70 years. Klaatu was sent to activate the judgment UNLESS he observed some clear indication that the harsh judgment wasn’t necessary yet. Klaatu didn’t change the original plan UNTIL very late in the story, which is why he stated to Helen that he wasn’t sure if he could overturn it. Although Klaatu was the primary agent, he wasn’t necessarily alone. Gort was there and he was only partially robotic, as well as Mr. Wu. There were probably hundreds/thousands of other aliens involved in one way or another.

The military attacks because their modus operandi is to defend the nation, which was augmented by the destructive nature of humanity in general.

When Bate’s character finally decides to send Helen out to talk with Klaatu she was the government’s proverbial last hope. All other governmental attempts to prevent the judgment failed abysmally up to this point, not to mention the judgment of mass destruction was ALREADY well into motion. Other national leaders were concerned with saving their own.

The biggest sphere was the central command orb. Klaatu didn’t possess the power to stop the swarm himself; he had to get to the central orb to attempt to stop the mass destruction. Even then, he wasn’t sure if he could do it. In fact, it cost him dearly.

The alien swarm only destroyed humanity and all human imprints (like the stadium, the the installation and the semi); I saw no evidence of the swarms destroying trees or animal life. The animal ark-orbs were obviously precautionary in nature; in other words, the aliens knew there would be collateral damage due to the nature of the swarms so they snatched away all manner of animal life as a precaution.

Klaatu made it quite clear what he was doing: saving the earth by destroying humanity and their intrinsic bent toward destruction. The way he put it was: If humanity lives the earth will die, but if humanity dies the earth will live.

The Aliens are powerful, but it’s inaccurate to call them careless. They monitored the planet for centuries and their decision was carefully decided.

To write-off humanity’s destructive bent as “minor-league carelessness” is shallow and un-enlightened, as well as wholly inaccurate.

The aliens’ actions had nothing to do with “might makes right” but everything to do with saving a planet from the infection that would wholly destroy it (people) if they failed to act. Their celestial judgment was that the cancer HAD to be cut out and time was of the essence.

Really, the only “detestable characters” are the government as a whole, which is displayed as a cold machine. Helen (Jennifer Connelly) is a character of beauty, reverence and wisdom while the professor plays humanity’s wise intercessor. Kathy Bates’ character is unlikable because she represents the government and comes off as an arrogant machine-like biyatch. After she’s completely humbled, however, she changes her tune. Meanwhile the kid is only 9 years old and lost both of his biological parents; cut him some slack. Besides, he also changes his tune and Klaatu takes on the role of his spiritual father. How can you NOT feel for Jacob when he falls on his face at his dad’s grave?

So none of the common gripes hold water. The insane bashing of the film is simply the result of an unjust critical feeding frenzy. If people would disregard the monkey-see-monkey-do panning and view the film with an open mind they might actually enjoy it and possibly discover something worthwhile.

The film runs 1 hour, 43 minutes.

Will Smith’s Kid ruined it for me.
If Klatu and his robot had come to Earth to kill Jaden Smith, i would have given this Movie 10 stars. I’ll be Frank. this kid ruined the movie for me. The 1951 version is still my favorite. 2008 version has some good effects, But changing the storyline is stupid. Casting is atrocious. And I’ll say it again Jaden Smith killed the Movie for me.

A soon-to-be forgotten remake of a timeless classic
The 2008 version starts off somewhat promising. Unlike the original, there is a build-up to the first encounter with Klaatu, which is sort of effective in eliciting both wonder and fear. It’s reminiscent of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Independence Day. It proceeds down a similar path to the original for a while afterward, embellishing a bit in some areas.

While Michael Rennie’s Klaatu was a complicated character, simultaneously coming off as creepy and trustworthy, Keanu Reeves’s Klaatu is hardly more than a robot. He is completely inexpressive and undynamic. There’s no way the audience can identify with him, so his fate seems ultimately unimportant. Also, his purpose is largely unclear in this version. He was a messenger in the original; the closest thing he can be related to in this version is a harbinger of death…

Which brings me to my biggest complaint with the movie. Robert Wise’s version had a clear underlying message to its audience; Scott Derrickson’s version doesn’t. Though the “big issue” that the film deals with has been changed from the nuclear arms race to global warming, it is hardly touched upon. The destruction of the human race is triggered with little more than a few lines of explanation.

Not to undermine the efforts of the 1951 classic’s film crew, but The Day The Earth Stood Still is a classic because of its message, a message that easily still applies today. Derrickson’s version of The Day The Earth Stood Still could have been a marvelous way of touching modern audiences with an old truth. Instead, it focuses more on thrills and special effects. Klaatu would be disappointed…
