Original idea, mediocre result
I had high expectations, as I really like this kind of future dystopia stories. However, Clive Owen delivers his regular kind of acting, even in a lesser quality then as in Inside Man for example, and the story unfolds in a predictable, not...

As one of the few people in the theatre when this film came out, I loved it. A brilliant film which deserved more consideration come oscar time. Clive Owen gives a great performance as the emotionally drained Theo. During the extremely long takes of...

Wow this film was good. The action/chase scenes are terrifying. Really sets you on the edge of your seat.

I love Cuaron's earlier spanish films and I came into this one with high expectations. I appreciate the realistic cinematography and direction but the plot didnt do much for me. The entire film felt like an excellent setup for a much better story...

I can honestly say this film defines the decade 2000-2009. Unremittingly bleak, the movie explores the loss of hope in humanity. WIth well-done shaky-cam photography, eerie soundtrack and and a set design to rival the "total reality" in a Clockwork...

Visually, this was one of the most arresting films I've ever seen. It makes me understand what seeing Apocalypse Now must have been like when it debuted. The acting is first rate and the direction is amazing. The only problem is the script. This is...

If I hadn't watched the propagandist special feature which just spouted out such slanted bullsh*t I would have given the movie 5 stars. I enjoyed the movie, but really question the motives of the makers of the movie. My suggestion would be to watch...

I really liked this movie mostly because of the set design and the flow of the scenes. They seemed to shoot each seen in one cut rather than cutting back and forth from one camera angle to another. You don't see that very often. I thought the movie...

I dont know what to write that has not been written already. Despite the hype Ive read surrounding this movie I thought it lived up to all of its hype. A little short at 1hr and 45 min. this film has been knocked for not explaining everything...

Best future dystopia movie ever. Not that I'm a big fan of the genre, but I really appreciated this particular grim vision of the not too distant future, perhaps because it seemed so plausible. It truly resembles what the world might look like in 20...

So I figure it this way... If I can watch 33 minutes of a 1-hour 52-minute movie and not have the slightest idea what's going on, I don't need to sit through the remaining hour and 19 minutes.

Very disappointing
don't get me wrong, it's not a bad film. the idea that it's based on is brilliant. but as the comment below me says, too many things in it just didn't work out right. Clive Owen's acting was great, but unfortunately the rest of the film just...

Slow, boring and depressing. I'm sure it has a very important message about the human condition, but in order to get it you have to stay awake - and I didn't.
