Quotes

Kye Cortland: You're gonna wake me up? Transform me back?
[laughs]
RE3F: I will try.
Kye Cortland: "You will try." Why don't you try dying. See if you feel like yourself when you come back. I'm not killing myself just so I can fight it with a fresh coat of paint, all right? I'm doing just fine.
RE3F: I am rarely wrong, Kye. Kill yourself.

B-class yawner

Can't say much about this without getting into spoilers. But:

* Decent acting * Decent directing * Slacker plot with a lot of unanswered questions

Not a terrible film, but a notch below mediocre. Nice plot twist that's somewhat unexpected, but most of the film is very slow moving, unexplained, with a generous dose of goofy thrown in. If not for the decent acting and characters (including the AI), this would have been a total schlock loss. The actors and directing keep it from getting less than 4 stars... but even they can't save a plot and story line that was lame from the beginning. Simply needed more development and a bit more ingenuity. As it is, it just doesn't work.
