Much better than I thought...
26 September 2004 | by michaelzstuffSee all my reviews

This movie is surprised the heck out of me. To be honest with you, when I first saw this movie, I didn't really like it. I don't know if it was because I not in the mood at the time, but I thought it was pretty boring. After thinking about it more, I wanted to watched it again to see if I could make more sense of it, which I did when I saw it again. Now it is definitely a movie I would see again. In fact I think it gets better every time I watch it. If you're one of those people who hates this movie, try watching with an open mind and understand that this movie may be "different" because it broke all kinds of new ground. Oh yeah, and actually listen to what they say instead of hoping to see crazy explosions and what not.
