I bought this movie because it was in 3D. I hadn't seen it, read any reviews on it, nothing. I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I rewatched it with my wife, and she hates it when I buy movies I haven't seen. She loved it. So, if you want to see a good sci-fi flick, this is a good choice.
I nearly didn't buy this movie due to the poor ratings this movie received from the critics when it was released to theaters. However, I a certainly happy I ignored their opinions and saw the movie for myself. This movie has some of the best production values I have seen for a movie of this scale in quite a while. It has a true creative vision of what other civilizations in the galaxy might look like that remind be of the visual images that were presented in the world of the "Harry Potter" series of movies. In other words, this movie delighted my senses with it's visual wonderment and believability! At first viewing, I understand now why the critics didn't like this movie but the more times you watch it the more you come to appreciate this mult-layered movie and what the movie is trying to say. My only complaint with the movie is that of poor editing in the start of the movie. In my opinion, the editing in the start of the movie is what makes people hate this movie. Unless you are really quick at picking up on scenes with no referance as to what is going on and where you are in time and space, it is hard to understand what is going on with this movie in the first view scenes of the movie. After watching this movie a second and then a third time the characters introduced in the first 3 to 4 scenes of the movie make sense as to who they are and how the articulate and interrelate with each of the other characters introduced at the start of the movie. Once you understand what is going on in this movie, it becomes clear that this is an inventive and orginal story line that truely entertains and keeps the audience engaged throughout the movie. I would highly recommend this movie to others but only if they are willing to take the time to watch the movie several times to get a grasp on who the characters are and what is going on at the start of the movie.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Ignore the Haters!
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
I saw this movie at the theater when it first came out and thoroughly enjoyed it. Later I saw that the internet decided this was a terrible movie. It's certainly not on my top ten list but it's a fun watch.
