No. Art desperately trying to imitate *real* life… and failing miserably.
No. I could recommend any number of more compelling versions of the same thing (see: Man on Fire, Jack Reacher).
No. There is no shortage of tremendous performances here… the problem is that they’re performing a flat, predictable screenplay.
No. The original Sin City blew my mind; this one just occupied my time.
No. I liked it better the first time, when it was called Equilibrium.
Yes. This is an extremely soft ‘yes’ in general, but a solid ‘yes’ for any fans of New Girl (or more specifically, Jake Johnson).
Yes. This film was shot over 12 years, following the life of a boy as he ages from 6 to 18… and it’s just as amazing as that sounds.
No. It’s a shame someone decided to put a thin plot and inconsistent ‘found’ footage in the middle of this great tech demo.
Yes. This movie is a masterclass in how to create a ‘visual effects extravaganza’-type blockbuster, while maintaining a heart and soul.
Yes. This thoroughly bizarre sci-fi flick has its share of faults, but lack of entertainment value is not one of them.
No. This is one of those movies you watch on HBO late at night when there’s nothing else on… and then completely forget that you even saw it.
Yes. Chris Evans plays the lead in this sci-fi thriller, but the real star is the absolutely killer premise.
