'Babylon A.D.' Panned By Its Own Director2008-08-27
French director Mathieu Kassovitz let loose in an interview with
AMCtv.com, describing his new movie Babylon A.D. as "pure violence and
stupidity." While some directors may strive for that, Kassovitz is
"ready to go to war" with Fox because "They made everything difficult
from A to Z." Instead of portraying "geopolitics and how the world is
going to evolve" he found in the source novel, "Babylon Babies" by
Maurice Georges Dantec, Kassovitz blames studio interference for the
film's resemblance to "a bad episode of 24." For what it's worth,
critics agree with Kassovitz—the few who have actually seen the
thing. Fox isn't doing critic screenings of Babylon A.D., a common
practice when studios know they have a stinker on their hands.—Movietimes.com Movie News Bureau
