Eddie Murphy stars in this comedy about an owner of the hottest nightclub on
the moon - whose club is a priority purchase by the mob! Pluto Nash (Murphy)
refuses their offers and after the club was blown up, goes on the search for
who is behind it all with the assistance of one of his waitresses (Rosario
Dawson) and his aging robotic bodyguard (Randy Quaid).
storyline progresses so does the action which is a blessing. Initially I
didn't think too much of the title as it was fully too cheeseball. And whilst
it continues in this vein throughout, the characters do wear on you and I
loved seeing Pam Grier in this movie as Pluto's mother.
special effects in this movie are a lot of fun and very good to look at.
Whilst the entire preface of the movie makes it all very unbelievable, from
what I could see, there was nothing that stood out as being badly done. The
story is a fairly generic type one and in fact reminded me strongly of two
Arnold Schwarzenegger films, Total Recall and 6th Day with the general themes
that ran through the movie.
movie has been transferred to a widescreen ration of 16:9 as it was at the
cinema and the audio booms in Dolby 5.1 surround. The title utilises all
speakers in a 5.1 setup and sounds fantastic.
have to say that all things said and done, Pluto Nash is a nice little
distraction, a feel good movie. The storyline is not challenging and it's the
kind of film that you could get up and return to your seat without missing
anything. Great for just kicking back and enjoying without the grey matter
being stretched at all.
