Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Science-fiction films usually present good value, and especially ones with extra-terrestrials, but you leave wanting more from "Paul". What was once cute about a bromance road trip loses its charm when the bond between the self-confessed geeks becomes a little too pronounced. The movie strives for mainstream appeal, fielding a varied range of jokes from satirical science-fiction writers, toilet humour and a galaxy of cultural references.

  • Excerpt: Written by and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, Paul travels in the same direction as their previous collaborations Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz in that it’s an ode to friendship and brotherly love, this time however, it’s an extra-terrestrial ménage à trois with the unexpected arrival of Paul, the slacker alien on the run. But lets back it up a bit.

Paul (2011)

10 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Met zijn groengrijze huid, grote hoofd en bolle ogen lijkt de buitenaardse titelfiguur uit Paul wel heel erg op de iconische, standaard alien . Zijn uiterlijk is inderdaad weinig origineel, maar ruimtemannetje Paul heeft een verhelderend weerwoord: sinds ze hem in 1947 opsloten, injecteert de Amerikaanse overheid zijn beeltenis mondjesmaat in de internationale popcultuur.
