Great story!
22 September 2004 | by TEMPKENNEDYSee all my reviews

The film is very different,many of the films that are given bad ratings by many of the fewers are generally rated bad because of the inability to follow a movie.Many watch just to see the fight scenes as if in real life conflicts don't generally start by things people say that is considered offensive."Lets just fight for no cause or reason".The story is well explained but you have those out there that cannot follow the film because hey,"I have to think".Ask anyone the question, why was the computer programmer of the video game killed in the beginning?"Because he knew Kung fu and Karate.Ha! Spiderman not the greatest movie of the year the hulk was OK, not anything unique.The film is very different but didn't receive the attention it deserved.The best films out there goes with- out attention.I know people who watched water world twice in one day but put something out there different unique.My point is here most people want to see the same things over and over.I'm even surprised the matrix was a big hit.
