Excerpt: Full disclosure: I absolutely love Michael Caine and will watch basically anything that he is in. It goes without saying then that when I saw a preview for “Is Anybody There?” on Apple.com some months ago I told myself that I would try and go see it.
Conclusion: We typically love our old men grumpy or grabbing some fountain of youth from aliens. However, Is Anybody There? has one thing those other films don't: Michael Caine. The film is a bit slow, but his acting skills and a nice transfer make this film worth at least a rental on Blu-ray Disc.
Excerpt: The movie is charming in a traditionally British way and disappoints for not being more than a quaint period piece, albeit a recent period. A tinkly slow soundtrack accompanies a tinkly slow story.
