Captain Harris: [reviewing Jim's mobile unit proposal] This is, uh, expensive. Look, Jim, I don't know what I can do about this. You're going to have to talk to the commander.
Jim Stone: But, I did, and he told me I need to speak with you.
Captain Harris: [dubious] Right. You know, you really should just talk to the commander about it.

Smart little movie
15 April 2016 | by settdittnavnherSee all my reviews

I like this movie. It was smart, fun and kinda strange. But I like it. The best movie with Nicolas Cage in years.

I think a lot of people don't get what is happening. If you think about what happened in the movie, it will all fall into place. This movie will be underrated by many. I think I got it. This is a thinker.

I would recommend this to people who are a little tired of the same old super-hero movie type and who are looking for a movie that you will have on your mind for a while. A nice surprise from Nicolas Cage and Elija Wood.

8/10 for me on this movie
