I have to agree with MajorMercyFLush and stryjewski. This movie is a snorefest. The amount of acclaim it recievs saddens me when shallow drivel like this is going to be held as a blueprint of successful filmaking.
It's nothing more than a set of video game like sequences sans the interactivity that makes video games appealing. So you can't interact with it, and the plot is for the lowest common denominator. Where does that leave it in my books? In the trash.
If it wasn't for the visuals and the amazing 3D, it would have been a let-down. However, it was made for the effects and I think it did justice to the 3D world and what a world it was.
I'm not a movie buff by any stretch, I won't claim to hold knowledge in writing or rant about the scientific names of minerals. I'll just say the movie was blah. I don't even get where people claim it looked amazing visually, it just looked like a crapload of cgi to me.
The story itself is so weak I found myself bored for more then half of the 2 hour plus movie. The bad guys attack and win the first battle but the good guys regroup and win the war.... Isn't that every episode of the A-Team? Not one time does the movie surprise you with a turn of events outside your expectations. Don't get me started on the cartoonishly tough military leader or the final fight scene where the bad guy tells the good guy what he's about to do. How classic. I'm sure the fanboys will flame the hell out of this as apparently some see this movie as life changing. If this movie changed your life you need to get out more.
Fantastic Movie, admittedly, I watched it when it first came out, Only just got this app.
I see lots complaining of this and that, Half have missed the point, even though you hated it, you still watched it till the end.
It's a Sci-Fi Movie, and that for me is enough, seeing what could be one of millions of possibilities of the kinds of worlds that just might be out their, Waiting to be Explored!
If your one to rule out such a planet may exist, Than I feel for there Imagination's!
I can't believe most comments are people whining, .... Who cares, It was a Sci-Fi Movie.
If you don't like that particular type of Genre, Then why bother watching.
Personally I'm most certainty a Space Cadet, I live for the Stars and what's out there!... I Thought this Film was Great, Watch it with Ambient lighting and 3D.
If you don't change your minds then,.... Well,.... I guess Curiosity isn't your strong point.
As long as I'm still alive by the first Manned Mars Landing, I'll be happy to live this Earth, Though It's not always the same sharing moments when single.
I guess I've got my work cut out for me, Haha
Predictable plot and flat characters but somehow you just have to see it all play out...probably because of the visuals. It's worth one watch at least. #ShiftvW8
