Definitely so-so

I usually enjoy IMAX films, but it's wasted on this one. I would like to have had a little more development in the differences, other than just "Healthcare for the wealthy". We already have that, thank you very much!

This was a very good movie. I only wish they had developed what economic conditions created the huge disparity in income that resulted in the very wealthy destroying the planet and then fleeing to their manmade gated community in the sky!! The acting was good. My only question is why they insisted on trying to give Jodi Foster a French accent. She was very good in the part. Matt is always great!! Not for children but should be a thought provoking experience for adults.

One of the better movies this year! Damon is great in his every man character, and Jodie makes a great evil presence! It is too bad there are places in the world that are already as bad as the movie portrays! Great movie!

Great SFX and Good Story but need more character development

The Movie seeing in IMAX was amazing the SFX, it is as real as it can be and how the future might look in 140 years. Unfortunately the characters were not well developed, you don't really connect with most of them but they are all good actors. For me beyond the SFX in a sfi story and the story itself, I like to connect with the characters the Good ones (what brought them to do the things they are doing )and the Bad ones (I like to really hate them because of all the bad things they do.) There were good and bad characters but there was no depth to them. A lot of friends that saw the movie also felt that way. District 9 in my opinion had a much better character (main character) development. I would still recommend it because is a beautiful (visually speaking) movie to see and the story is interesting. Neo

It looked like it was going to be fantastic. It has Matt Damon and Jodie Foster in it. But it just never gets good. The plot was nothing spectacular, and the action and fight scenes feature the camera shaking more than anything else.
