    In a world where new and creative stories are overshadowed by blockbuster franchises this movie is a breath of fresh air. Fantastic cast that does amazing! The story gives you hope and is very original. Loved this movie and recommend to all.

    Not bad... the ending kind of leaves you hanging. It would be cool if there's a sequel to explore the other world where Nasa or some top secret government department figures out a way to detect and visit the other world. Such a cool concept.

    Man oh man is this movie good!!! Takes you back to the good ol days of scifi flicks of the 1970s and 1980s. So much heart within this little film. It is a wonderful feeling watching such a beautiful movie like this one. You will love it!

    This movie's acting is superb, but it definitely started to become very disappointed when I started to realize this is a story I have seen so many times before. I'd still recommend because the actors deserve their work to be seen.

    OMG...really poorly done all around. Such a shame as I had high hopes being a fan of the original series, movies, and the comic book. I don't know where to start, the story was stupid and acting pitiful...an all around monkey-$@&%

    This movie was a complete and utter surprise! It was such a sweet and touching journey. At it's heart, it's a simple tale of a man trying to protect his son. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone!

    Well done and well written. It starts out seeming typical and formulaic.....but it turns out to be unpredictable and very compelling. I really enjoyed this movie and glad I have it in my library as I will watch it again.

    this is the kind od movie i usually watch 2 times. there are things that you miss because its a fast paced movie. M. Shannon is a very good actor. I've seen him in a few movies of different genres and he was good in all.

    This is a really good fugitive sci fi thriller. The story revolves around a father and his "special" son. Religion and Science are challenged as the story evolves. Worth a watch if you are into science fiction.

    Do not waste your time or money on this movie. I don't know why it was even made. I only got this because i like the actors in the movie. It was boring and the plot was terrible with no direction.

    Demo-quality transfer. Nicely done all around but a bit slow at times. Excellent acting and a very interesting story but the boy is a bit enigmatic in that his powers are never fully explained.

    Michael Shannon is on fire lately. This movie had a great cast. It's very simple, but does a good job getting the story out. I enjoyed it and sci-fi fans out there will like this one too, recommended.

    This is very different kind of sci-fi movie. If you're expecting action, effects and thrills you will be disappointed. This is very good movie, but it's more of a father/son drama than a thriller.

    Sort of Speilberg's dark cousin this film drops you right in. Some viewers may find the lack of clear narrative structure frustrating but the world created is more than worth the viewing.

    Evoking memories of E.T. and Star Man, this film is a few tweaks shy of great. Highlights include the acting, especially Michael Shannon. I also recommend the movie MUD by the same director.

    I was intrigued by this film from when I first heard about it. Best Buy had it at a great price on B.F. and I am glad I picked it up. It is a very good science fiction film. Recommended.

    This was different, it had some things i wouldn't have thought of for a scifi movie, so it made it more interesting, great story, could have better actors, but these did a great job...
