This was a great plot really great...

Really enjoyed this movie

By SmoLovesMovies

This was a dull and super-obvious film. The sci fi was cheesy. The actors appeared to be sleepwalking. Don't waste your time or your money....

Not as great as critics claim

By andrewlong465
Really great concept, but doesn't live up to all the hype....
