'Sky Captain' Soars on Dazzling Effects

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow tells the story of a reporter and a hotshot pilot trying to save the world. The film's digitally created universe is both a nostalgic nod to the sci-fi serials of the 1930s and a stunning modernist vision. Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan has a review.
