The only reason I didn't give this movie a 10 of 10 was the acting at various points throughout the film. However, given the content of the film, I feel that the actors did the best they could with the emotions and reactions they had set out to portray. This movie is an EXTREME look into faith, philosophy, technology, the way we learn, the way we think, and they way we perceive things should be based upon our known logic to date. I haven't read the book but absolutely plan to, if only to hear more arguments in the round-table discussion. I was very hesitant to see this movie, and only did because I had nothing better to do. After a few minutes into the film I was hooked and couldn't step away for even a moment. Another reviewer had commented that the movie sometimes made you want to be right alongside the characters asking your own questions to the main character, and they were right. This movie has no action sequences, love scenes, or violence that we know and sometimes love in cinema. All that is here is simply this: a story. A story that questions a great deal of what you thought you knew. I doubt that this movie will "open your eyes" to a new way of thinking or spark a revolution in your own mind but I can guarantee that even if you hate this film, you will still be talking about it when it is done, especially if you watch it with someone else.
