The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005)

Written By Awir Aditya on Sunday, March 28, 2010 | 9:20 AM


Genre: Drama/Comedy/Science-fiction/Adventure

Starring: Martin Freeman, Mos Def, Sam Rockwell, Zooey Deschanel, Bill Nighy, Alan Rickman (voice), Warwick Davis


Planet Earth has been destroyed. British national Arthur Dent (Freeman) never knew his true friend, Ford (Def) was an alien belonging to a planet which is in the vicinity of planet Betelgeuse . Ford rescues Arthur from the destruction of Earth by hitchhiking onto a Vogon spaceship. The Vogon's apparently destroyed Earth to create a hyperspace expressway and they resent hitchhikers. Due to an extremely rare co-incidence they get rescued by the galaxy President, Zaphod Beeblebrox (Rockwell) a man who became President for the fame and money and doesn't give two hoots about the galaxy. Arthur finds on board the ship his long-lost love, Trillian (Deschanel) along with a highly-depressed robot, Marvin (voiced by Rickman and acted out by Davis). Zaphod wants to know the ultimate question which would answer the problems of life and gets on an inter-galactic adventure to hunt for it. The movie is plagued with irrelevant psychological and scientific thoughts along with funny one-liners. Although the movie does make you laugh on more than one occasion, the story seemed to have lacked a structure and seems flimsy. The screenplay has been adapted from a book of the same name written by Douglas Adams.

Thumbs up: Humour and graphics
Thumbs down: Unstructured story

Rating: 6.7/10
