Don't read this with a closed mind
OK, so maybe this movie doesn't deserve a 10, but I feel I have to give
it one to make up for all the brain dead people who have made their
opinions painfully clear. I've read through as many comments as I can
take and it makes me weep for the future of movies. I've read that
people are upset with this movie because they went to the theater
expecting not to have to think and then they get upset because there
was a plot point they didn't understand. Boo hoo, what are you 6? It
used to be that movies actually made people think. That was before
Hollywood discovered they could make far more money appealing to the
lowest common denominator, ie. idiots. I'd like to go more into idiotic
comments others have made, but I don't want to give spoilers and it
would be purely for my own benefit anyway.
Now, I saw the theatrical version a while back and I just watched the
directors cut, and the biggest difference that I saw was that they made
the effort in the DC to give more background at the beginning. So if
your mind hurt cause you couldn't connect the dots yourself, try that
one. If you want to see a really cool movie, that is far more unique
than anything I've seen since the Matrix, and you don't mind using a
little brain power, I recommend the theatrical version, cause thats
what I'm gonna go out and buy.
I'm not particularly fond of Kurt Wimmer. I don't know if I like his
writing because most of what I've seen of his is an adaptation of some
kind. Ultraviolet and Equilibrium are about it, and I don't think that
the writing is the strong point in either movie. What I do know is that
I don't think much of him as an editor. I didn't like Equilibrium at
all, for reasons I won't go into here as its not the Equilibrium page.
However, what I can tell is that I sure am glad that Ultraviolet was
taken out of his hands because judging by what he did with his
directors cut, it might be his influence in the editing room that made
me dislike Equilibrium as fervently as I do.
Finally, I said earlier that I thought this movie was unique. The plot
line wasn't unique, the characters weren't unique, and the fighting
certainly wasn't unique, so I can't possibly know what I'm talking
about, can I? Find me a movie with a truly unique plot, how about one
with unique characters. Unique fights? Not really. All art draws from
other what came before. As Oscar Wilde would have told us, it's not
always what you say, but how you say it that makes it art. If you're
looking for a Die Hard or a Kill Bill or a Matrix, which entertains
whether you think about it or not, this is not your movie (and its
obvious a lot of people on IMDb don't want to do a lot of thinking).
But if your looking for something that is both modern science fiction
and yet closer to the golden age of movie making. You just might enjoy
this one. It might not be a 10, it might not be a great movie, but
remember, Casablanca isn't as good a movie as the Maltese Falcon but it
is still regarded as a classic today, and guess what, they didn't hand
you the background on a silver platter in that movie either..

this is a good movie to watch it ..
Overall a bit corny...but it is good action with enough storyline to keep interest and keep the movie tempo. High average rating for an action movie..
nice movie .
I saw it...and loved it.
The reason I loved this movie so...is because of the great
cinematography.The violence left out the gore that comes with action
movies like this.Too much blood to me is distasteful.This movie had
little to none.The action sequence with Violet on the motorcycle riding
on the buildings was great.I love it when a lot of stuff is going
on.Bullets flying, debris everywhere.William Fichtner is great as
usual.I also love the emotion that comes from Violet because of her
compassion for 6.Well done.Milla Jovovich is excellent in this movie.I
would really like to know about the significance of the Cross symbol
that was on everything.The coffee cup, The building designed in the
shape of the Cross.If there truly is a comic of this...I never read it.
I plan on it though.Great movie..
