Review

  • Given that the storyline has many elements that give an appearance of a depth that doesn't really exist in the movie (for example, the idea that everything is totally planned out - but it doesn't quite turn out that way)... However, reading a review that points out similarities with a Scientology theory I can quite easily see a parallel and possible hidden agenda.

    It's quite a shallow film with some imagined depths - mostly supplied by the viewer. It gets you thinking a little, and it's an enjoyable movie. It tends to fall down and frustrated me a little toward the end; but then the end is a cool ride that leaves you feeling good (even if it is trashy).

    It's not too hard to zone out and suspend brainpower. After trying to work things out for the first half, you're ready to watch the second which delivers a shot of endorphines and leaves you not feeling too bad about being cheated.
