    The premise is absurd and the acting is even worse.

    The plot had potential, maybe could have been better in a book format. senseless killings to get the point across that the world is ending was a good idea was a bit overdone. very interesting supporting charcters. Clive Owen`s acting was quite impressive so was Micheal Caine, good special effects to make a slum London. Ending was a letdown, left the entire trip pointless unless we could see what happens at the end of their trip but no such luck.

    This was a most excellent film. Clive Owen was a great choice for the lead character. The plot is beleivable(not always the case with sci-fi)& the movie looked & felt real, very gritty & bleak. The camera work was top notch, some of the fight/chase scenes had a "Call of Duty" third person feel, very intense (blood splatter on the camera lens) I`d give it 4.00 out of 5.00.

    Excellent use of monochromactic stlye similar to Black and White. Using the hand held camera brings the viewer directly in contact with the event on screen. The existance of two distinct level of privilege is brillantly displayed upon entering the royal grounds.

    Very well put together. I love how they take concept cars and trash them. The juxtaposition of the simple living and crazy hard core music is magical, because it surprises and forces us to examine how we view the world. The story is beautifully crafted to fit real life where there are no real endings, only beginings. The ending works well for a sequel. The set design and camera angles help to tell the story of a world that isn`t that much different that what we are experiencing right now. You can picture yourself there and that is what gives this movie its creepy appeal. It`s definitely a wake-up call. I wonder though if people can be woken u

    This is a very good movie, others comments about it being very Orwellian are right on. For those who say there are many loose ends...what exactly are you referring to? I think its your ADD addled brains that can`t handle a movie that lets you think about events and doesn`t wrap up into one of your neat little MTV-inspired packages where everyone and everyhting works out great. Eith all the chemicals, pesticides and drugs in our food and water supply, this isn`t so far fetched. In fact infertility and ed problems are rising exponentially.

    The most intense fil I`ve seen in ages. Nightmar-ish, Orwellian, a Sublime piece if you`re paying attention. It`s interesting to read the reviews and pick out the typos, and "Boooorings" and then read some of the other better worded reviews. Obviously given the chaismus between the two, this film is for people with attention spans and a fair bit of smarts. That is to say, if you lack any of these you will not like this film at all.

    Boring, not well thought out, too many loose ends. Would not recommend it. Could have written a better script myself.
