Better than I expected

I had low hopes going in, I was expecting just a action flick with little to no real story content and it was much more than that. Was not disappointed!

Awesome movie

I thought the movie was very good. Action packed but also emotional. Overall the graphics were great and the IMAX experience made it better. I'm really glad they didn't do IMAX 3D because I enjoy regular IMAX better.

Have and Have Not Fable

It's always interesting to see how hollywood depicts the haves and have not approach to life on Earth and beyond. In this tale they give this premise the ability to right the wrongs of the haves and have nots. A must see if you are into seeing the little guy win with a twist.

Interesting idea , good effects, some nice action sequences, and a solid job by Damon (throwaway job by Foster) but was too predictable a too preachy. I've red others scream about the "political agenda" the movie "forces down your throat, etc. etc. etc. ..." but that didn't stop me from enjoying the movie. Agree or disagree with any message, I want to be entertained. This movie did that but it also seemed to wave an admonishing finger in the face of anyone with extra money in their pocket. Despite that, yes, I enjoyed the movie as a whole, but was or overwhelmed by it.

Another Promising Director Corrupted by Hollywood. Instantly!

The movie displays all the superb technical qualities that ONLY Hollywood can produce. The South African director Neill Blomkamp showed promise in District 9, an uneven but hightly original SciFi movie. So what happened? If Matt Damon and Jody Foster had been given 30 minutes of real acting time, this might have been an very good movie. Instead the movie feels like somebody pushed the fast foward button and forgot to turn it off. You may find this movie an entertaining mindless summer flick. But all I can see is a sizable investment in money and talent flushed down the toilet.
