How did a movie so good get such low ratings?
26 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

I keep asking myself this, and I think the answer is in how I came about to finally watch it --When I first ran across this movie on one of the numerous lists I peruse to discover unknown gems, I clicked into the movie and immediately saw a naked woman looking at me --I decided I was not in the mood for smut and clicked out of it. Later having forgotten about it i ended up looking at the nude woman again, and left again.

Eventually I found myself in the mood for some sic fi goochy and decided to look up the nudey woman movie. 20 minutes in I realized there was not going to be any goochy and once again left off.

Eventually I decided to watch the dam thing and was stunned to find it one of the most intellectual sci fi movies I have ever watched, and I watch a lot of them, old and modern.

In summary i think people who are searching for an excellently scripted sci fi flick immediately turn away from this movie with its pointless intro, and give it a poor rating. Those caught up with the intro begin to watch it, get frustrated at the plot development, wondering when the porn will kick in, give up and give it a poor rating.

I got my wife to watch it and she found movie very engrossing. I got a movie buddy of mine who is a modern traditional eye candy special effects person to watch it. I had to fight him over the stupid iPod that he brings out when he believes a movie to be boring, and at the end of the movie (minus the i pod), he thanked me and said it was one of the most intelligent sci fi's he had watched in years.

This movie is for mature audiences who place script and plot development and acting above eye candy and opening sex/violence in the first five minutes, anyone not fitting this category will not finish the movie and if they do they will not enjoy it. I suspect some of the people writing the reviews have not actually watched the whole movie
