Great Ideas & Concepts that Does'nt Delivered in Cinemas

by gjrb01 | created - 18 Oct 2011 | updated - 19 Oct 2011 | Public

The plot of the story or should I say the idea of the movie is so great but could not deliver because of some flaws...either by acting, scripts, visual effects..etc.

WOW! just WOW!

great and fresh idea...but... I mean a big BUT.........

Acting especially the lead actor was also a big big NO NO... The story was somewhat misleading..or it could be nicer if it is put in another way it is...(but of course I'm not the scriptwriter nor the director)

But I still believe its an amazing and very entertaining movie..

Great Idea... Fresh & original... but....

Acting & Visual Effects and Editing and some intensity is lacking... If Q. Tarantino would be directing it for a remake this would be very amazing film to see...

Apocalyptic was not new to us but it is very intimidation to know that the end of the world is yet to be a year to come.. so it was certified hit...but....

Acting & Visual Effects were not that great plus the impact & intensity of the film was weak... yet very promising but doesn't delivers...

Actually the whole series...

Acting & Editing was very poor especially Kristin... nonetheless the whole story was original which give way to a lot of imitators...

This film yearly is one of the most anticipated movies but it doesnt delivers well...

A post apocalyptic movie that is really great though the twist of the story creates discussion of the film's flaws...

Acting and visual effects was great but the editing of the story could have been improve to be a near perfect movie..

Great great idea... could you possibly think you can sue the demon itself???

I said its a very rare idea to put in a film... but its hard to made a story so flawless till the end..

This one is actually a great film already for me... but.....

it has some few flaws... acting was great and the story itself is majestic and amazing but the flaws here is that how come that not all the character who posses a four digit IQ genius could not think how to reproduce the pill except for the main man himself??? and of course he could do it by himself to raise fund and not to borrow from a Russian mob.

But overall a descent and a very good film.

I remember this movie was so great when I was till young, but now that I have watched it again...nah... it is like a low profile movie... the editing and effects are poorly made but I think the concept itself carry this film plus you got Keanu at his prime...
