Standard Keanu Reeves action flick with no depths and a rather boring plot. I began to watch this flick a 2nd time because I could not remember having already watched it and realized after about 15 minutes that I have a) already seen this mediocre movie b) that it does not get any better watching it a second time. There are much better sci-fi themed action movies out there and I can only recommend to skip TDtESS in favor of them!

Probably thought it would be something else, especially after having read the book.
Disappointed that it wasn't the same story, though this one wasn't that bad. I do think that the original story would have been a better one, if adapted.
To each his own though.
