Comparing any Luc Besson movie to the Transformers movie franchises makes my teeth hurt. Clive Owen could have been given a half-hour in the makeup booth and been a qualifying lead for this movie. Cara didn't hurt the eyes, but she's like any model-hot girlfriend lead for crappy celluloid-very vapid.
The movie really wasn't giving source material justice, here. I can say that I used to read these when there was a decent comic shop in Decatur, Illinois. Joe was a fan, RIP, buddy.
I feel Luc is the right one to head anything with this series, but I really wish this would have gone on Netflix as a series. /long sigh.
