4.0 out of 5 stars Why is everbody so unhappy?, 17 Mar 2008
This review is from: Next [DVD] (DVD)
When I saw all the poor reviews I felt I had to defend this film. This is not highbrow drama, made to make a bold statement about the human condition. This film is entertainment. Yes its unbelievable, Yes it has some dodgy plot twists and the end is not as conclusive as we have been led to expect in happy ending hollywood films. But does this matter. As a bit of a brainless film to watch its great. Doesnt pretend to be anything else. Goodies, Baddies, superpowers and the end of the world. Who needs more after a hard day. I saw it in the cinema and still bought the DVD. It honestly isnt as bad as its made out to be by some, just dont expect Shakespeare

I think S.J. just about has it right - it scores as a piece of chill out entertainment after a busy day, not much more. The principals are all good actors, so it gets a lift there. The plot is a bit weak, although the concept is fair enough, as willing suspension of disbelief has always been a requirement for sci-fi drama. The ending is unsatisfactory, however, even for a piece of "brainless" entertainment!
