good movie
6 July 2005 | by (eureka, ca) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie.

But it's not a mindless shoot em up bang bang sci-fi flick.

I can't believe this got such a low rating, of course, look at how many people voted on it, probably just the IMDb staff who tend to side with critics that lose site of the fact the movies are for entertainment.

Compared to a lot of other mindless sci-fi genre this is a classic, let's vote on this one and get it back up to where it belongs in th 8's and 7;s!

It's for sci-fi fans that don't need a bunch of special FX in order to enjoy a good movie.

You should give this movie a look see.

Just my opinion.
