2.0 out of 5 stars Weak, 26 April 2008
I was looking forward to this film, being a fan of Michel Gondry, but was sorely disappointed. This is a half-finished Charlie Kaufman idea, padded out into a film by Gondry. My experience is, Gondry is a genius so long as he's either collaborating or not working in feature length. Science of Sleep is another of his directorial let-downs, wheras Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is wonderful. Don't let him steal over an hour of your life people! Get Spotless Mind instead and watch some real cohesive artwork.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inferior re-release, 22 Aug 2006
The album 'Becoming X' is excellent, but this 1999 version is a re-release with different versions of '6 underground' and other tracks. Not sure if they were the single release versions, but it's the old, tired and unnecessary practise of adding 'rap vocals' and a different bass line to a superb original... Get the 1996/7 version with 'circuitboard' cover for the original and best sneaker pimps album!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 1 Oct 2005
A film that I watched with excitement and anticipation, but found to be soulless and lacking. At the cinema I left feeling cheated! I enjoy Rodriguez's films with their stylish, over the top visuals and mad action, (especially One Upon A Time in Mexico) but this offering failed to deliver that extra something I have come to love. When I look at all the elements that go into this film it should add up to something great, but for me it just doesn't work unfortunately! Especially speaking as a comic book fan...
