One of the biggest difficulties that must be faced by a film critic, or any person who intends to share their opinion on a feature film, is in the need of stripped of all prejudices and knowledge derived from their age, knowledge and life experiences, to be able to make an evaluation according to the target target to which it is addressed the product.
Analyzed with coldness, and from the perspective of a man in his thirties who takes nearly half of his life delivered to the seventh art, the bump in box office that has suffered ‘The adventures of doctor Dolittle’ is more than justified; being perfectly reflected its troubled production in every minute of a film whose best label would be disastrous.
But it is clear that the last thing the academy award-winner Stephen Gaghan —‘Syriana’—, of a bobalicón and inert character, child, is not designed for me. Therefore, once the lights went off in the room, I forced myself to do a visioning exercise to try to enjoy the movie from the point of view closest as possible to your potential audience. And, surprise, the thing has not been so terrible as painted.
A matter of perspective
once you have disconnected a good part of my neural network, and after a lovely sequence introductory animated, didn’t cost me too introduce myself squarely in the wacky ‘The adventures of doctor Dolittle’ and in his festival of excesses, pre-fabricated to keep stuck in the armchair to the little ones of the house during 100 fleeting minutes. Little more than an hour and a half in the comedy more lightweight and goofy coexists with the visual extravagance of a mode strangely successful.
Under my gaze free of misgivings and suspicions I was able to laugh with the countless faces and ravings of a Robert Downey Jr. without any type of control, evadirme thanks to an endless succession of set-pieces in which the camera is not still in the service of an assortment of animal CGI like of unleashed, the protagonist, and swallowing without the effort a history of the most simple, developed with the autopilot power.
once completed the function, a lot less tortuous than expected, and, again, in my right mind, it was impossible not to approach ‘The adventures of doctor Dolittle’ through my prism as usual. Then, the sympathetic pantomime of Downey Jr. became a real nonsense without feet or head —still attempt to process his accent welsh— in which an interpreter is respectable —there will still be ‘Chaplin’ to prove it— falls on the grounds of the shame of others and the almost public humiliation.
Likewise, the narrative of the film went from being light to reveal himself as a total sindiós in the sequences unrelated were happening to stumble without any type of glue is causal that the join, making excessive focus on the digital creatures, built of irregular shape and much less lucid than they should be. Nor what to say of a sense of humor is your best asset in the large-scale extraction of objects in the anus of one of the characters.
luckily, none of the latter should be perceived by the viewers belonging to the target ‘The adventures of doctor Dolittle’; a production whose greatest sin has been an excess of ambition —in particular of 175 million— that, except surprise, it will cost quite expensive to Universal Pictures, and that reminds us that, also in the film, to “it is all a question of the color of the eye of the beholder”.
