Have seen worse
19 February 2003 | by philipwalduckSee all my reviews

not too bad a film it compared favourably in my mind with 2002's X Men but much more interesting. I really enjoyed it the first time I saw it but it wasnt memorable. Being a big Sci-Fi fan i watch all Sci-Fi movies when shown on TV and could not remember if i had seen this one till about five minutes in but stuck with and enjoyed it.
