A guide to enjoying this wonderful film!
19 October 2001 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

From taking a peek at some of the comments left by my fellow viewers, I feel impelled to conclude that it ain't exactly popular. Why oh why??! Ok, if you're looking for a seriously good, quality sci-fi film, I wouldn't expect you to enjoy this movie. BUT- if you're looking for something thought-provoking, entertaining and with lots of, um, original acting, this is it! It's just a matter of watching it with the right perspective...

Allow me to explain: the movie CAN be seen to have these qualities, but only if you look at it in the right way...

1) Thought-provoking - Of course it is! I guarantee that this film will get you thinking. I, myself, had many thoughts while watching it. Just because most of them involved the word "Why??" being repeated in a slightly hysterical manner is no reason to underestimate this particular quality of the film.

2) Entertaining - How can any viewer fail to be entertained by some of the film's amazing dialogue? It is both original, AND amusing (perhaps not for the reasons intended, but again, this is no reason to dismiss the film as not entertaining).

3) Original acting - Mark Hamill - I defy any of you to find anyone who can act as badly as him. Therefore, I believe his performance to be quite original. As for Bob Peck, how he contorted his facial muscles into some of those strange expressions I have no idea, nor do I know what any of them mean. But I bet no one else has ever done them.

So there you are! Do watch the film, I beg of you. I hope after reading this short guide, your enjoyment of this very much misunderstood film will be greatly improved.
