Opening This Week: G-Force Tsunami

It is fall season now and there will be some great movies coming out in the months to come, especially in the form of Oscar-worthy films. But do not expect a blockbuster every week. This week we have an espionage movie from Hollywood starring talking mice, or are they guinea pigs? Either way, a movie about talking rodents spies. Yeah. Also, we have a Korean movie about a Tsunami.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer brings his first 3-D film to the big screen with G-Force, a comedy adventure about the latest evolution of a covert government program to train animals to work in espionage. Armed with the latest high-tech spy equipment, these highly trained guinea pigs discover that the fate of the world is in their paws. Tapped for the G-Force are guinea pigs Darwin (Sam Rockwell), the squad leader determined to succeed at all costs; Blaster (Tracy Morgan), an outrageous weapons expert with tons of attitude and a love for all things extreme; and Juarez (Penelope Cruz), a sexy martial arts pro; plus the literal fly-on-the-wall reconnaissance expert, Mooch and a star-nosed mole, Speckles (Nicolas Cage), the computer and information specialist.

If a movie has talking 3-D animated guinea pigs in and it's not made by Pixar, you have nothing to get excited about. In fact, there's only one reason why I would consider watching this film. And that would be Jerry Bruckheimer. But I'm sure a ton of people are going to love this film. So don't listen to me when I say don't go and see this film.

A popular vacation spot on the East Sea coast, Haeundae draws one million visitors to its beaches every year. One day, a geologist who is an expert on tsunami research, discovers the East Sea showing signs of activity similar to the Indian Ocean at the time of the 2004 Tsunami. Despite his warnings, the Disaster Prevention Agency affirms that Korea is in no harm of being hit but on a hot summer day, a super-tsunami is headed straight for Haeundae at 500 miles per hour.

It should be interesting to see how a foreign disaster movie without the financial prowess of Hollywood gets along with it's special effects and everything else.
