Seann William Scott,
2/3rds of the movie is decent, but the final act is one of the worst I've seen in a long time.
The movie isn't bad; it's worth your time to check out if you're into sci-fi. It's got good acting as well.
The problem is the last part of the movie. Not because of story - there is an interesting plot element that should have been explored more - but because the filmmakers seem to have no sense of how to build to a climax. Most of the last few scenes consist of characters wandering around doing mundane things like brushing their teeth. I'm not exaggerating: within the last 12 minutes of the film, the main character literally stops to brush her teeth. Go watch it if you don't believe me.
It's a shame that the movie fizzles out like that. I really was enjoying it up until it lost all its momentum.
