  • Really good

    By TruckerDeen
    Awesome acting. Good effects. Story was good. Just a solid sci-fi film.
  • Highly Underrated

    By N7CaptainObvious
    This is one of those films that doesn't get the recognition it deserves. A brilliant story with an equally brilliant cast. One of the things I love about this film is that it shows the human condition in all it's aspects.
  • Greatest Film Ever Made

    By MCG
    Whoever you are, wherever you are, you should rush to watch this as soon as humanly possible, if you haven't already. And if you already have, do it again.
  • Love it.

    It’s hard to describe how good this movie is and what what it means to me. The score is so good that it acts like a character of its own. Great acting, superb plot and just all around great. Well worth your time and money.
  • Great film W/one problem

    By Omnithomas
    Excellent pacing and special effects. The characters are believable and organically evolve and clash throughout the story. However there is something that happens in the 3rd act that just brings the whole movie down. Sad because the “twist” was unnecessary and kind of a Deus Ex Machina.
  • Good and bad

    By jfdklsajfdsa
    The premise is unbelievably stupid, but if you ignore what they are trying to do the movie is actually pretty good
  • Awesome Sci-fi

    By MTP iTunes
    Great to watch, dont read into it just let it unfold & take it all in.
  • good start, lousy finish

    By jeff8v7
    it was interesting & intriquing until it turned into a psycho stalker movie. Why?
  • Entertaining and intense

    By BigBenya
    Pretty cool movie. Definitely liked the science aspect of it (although pretty unrealistic). Good plot, not the best ending but overall a good sci-fi flick.
  • Forget this

    Hey, my first review... Didn't leave a review for other toss (Hi, Keanu, etc...), so this MUST be bad! What promises to be a sci-fi thriller of note just becomes laughable half-way through. A great cast is wasted on Boyle's inability to deliver a consistent thematic story line. It just gets silly. Sooo mad I wasted time on this!! :P
