More than I expected
20 February 2015 | by GaleSWestonSee all my reviews

This movie definitely exceeded my expectations. It definitely trumps divergent by far, might even be on par with the hunger games. This movie was non stop action, and mystery. It definitely succeeded in keeping me on edge wondering what was going to happen next. If you're contemplating whether or not you should watch it, do yourself a favour and watch it, believe me you will not regret it!

Although Abstraction story isn't one of the brilliants I have seen, it is interesting enough to satisfy my interest. Opening scene is intriguing and wakes your interest to wait to see what to come. Biggest problem is the movie casting.

Hunter Ives is interesting character enough. After all great scenery combined with intensive storytelling is fresh enough to bring this movie a little bit more interesting, than most of those Hollywood's post-apocalyptic serial productions these days.

Great stuff! Well that's about it for what I have to say, you've gotta watch the movie to really understand the good things about it.

The movie Is good.
