Director Doug Liman’s science fiction film is an adaptation of Patrick Ness’ 2008 novel The Knife of Never Letting Go. A boy (Tom Holland) meets a mysterious girl (Daisy Ridley) who helps him unlock the mysteries of their dystopian world. Prior to their meeting, he believed that women were extinct and all living beings were constantly inundated with a telepathic knowledge of everyone’s consciousness.~Augustine Chay
This turned out being better than I thought it would. I enjoyed it for being a different kind of movie that we are all used to. The picture quality and sound on this 4K are top notch. Very clean and pristine picture. The SteelBook looks excellent as well. It comes with a slip cover which is always a nice bonus.
I bought this movie expecting excellent visuals and audio based on the director's past works. I ended up with a very good movie that seemed to be too harshly penalized by critics due to a script that doesn't do enough with the movie's premise.
While the script could be a bit stronger, it is still a quite adequate attempt at a difficult premise to execute well. Direction, acting, and technical presentation are all top notch. The sound direction is right there with Edge of Tomorrow - very immersive with well applied bass for those with subwoofers!
Chaos Walking is worth a watch or addition to movie collections for anyone that enjoys a tightly executed light sci-fi premise with very nice visuals and sound direction. Compared to the endless stream mediocre-at-best sci-fi movies, we should celebrate a decent success like this rather than complain that it isn't a breakthrough success.
I've given this review 5 stars to raise the movie's profile even though it is actually somewhere between a 4 and 4.5 stars for me.
This is an awesome movie. Great actors, very convincingly done narrative. Reviewers are doing injustice by not giving it its fair chance.
I just watched it this evening with whole family and everyone equally enjoyed. I had to come and review it so that others can have the same fun. This movie in fact is perfect for a second time or even a third time watch.
Why I gave 5 stars? I gave it 5 based on value it returned for the price I paid :) no cheap graphics in the movie, great action, engaging story line, the depiction of noise(no spoiler here) is awesome. lol, I also got very low expectation after few of the reviews. In my opinion, this movie is very much better compare to love and monsters (no story comparison, just based on what people said about it and what I actually felt).
go for it, it's a good movie.
4k Steel-book is very good looking. totally worth the money. The disc worked perfect. Best-buy did awesome job by keeping my order ready for pickup.
I bought this despite the lukewarm critical reception because I enjoy the acting talents of its two young British stars. The concept of everything a male is thinking appearing visibly above his head is an extreme take on the Mel Gibson film 'What Women Want.' In this case the consequences are far more dire for Daisy Ridley, being the sole female left on the planet. I don't want to give any more away, but I'm glad I took a chance as this was definitely worth a watch.
Like how this movie describe our mind as "NOISE" when having something in our mind then will expose around our head that will let people know what we thinking and yet only apply to men. Love the cast and the narrative of this movie.
Being a huge Tom Holland fan, this was a must-buy. Extremely disappointed and upset that Tom's image is not on the front cover of the SteelBook, considering he's the main character in the movie. Has cool artwork images inside the case.
