| Watchable entertainment, easily could have been better ...
In general, it hits all the buttons of dystopian suspense, i.e. you quickly realize the plot is scratching along a well-mined seam. Some here whammy the acting, some the directing, or both. I think the directing and editing of closeups deserve the most criticism ... leaving actors, who are struggling with the concept of how to look stunned, confused, frightened ... or just thoughtful ... hanging up there on the screen for seemingly endless moments. Action movies need their moments of painful introspection, but this was out of control. Even in the midst of a hairy shoot-em-up you have people staring into space. A serious incomprehension of timing. Otherwise, yeah, if you love watching movies, and like sci-fi, I'd recommend this. Mediocre, yes, and it would probably deserve a 6 ... but when I find myself becoming aware of directing flaws while watching a movie, it's automatically down by 2. (BTW ... how in the world can people use a sci-fi flic as a launching pad for their political woof-woof, is beyond me. This site ain't FB.)
