This movie won't be known as one of the greats. But it will someday be considered a cult classic. If you are a fan of the "Stephen King's The Stand", "Dark City", or "The Prisoner" series you will enjoy this movie. It does have some seriously coarse language and that is the reason for the hard R rating. It does bring up a lot of serious issues that affect us back in 2008 and even now. It is definitely a movie for mature viewers who want a film that makes them think or just brain numbingly amuses them for an hour and a half.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

While this wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. This movie has a great cast and some decent acting although I just couldn't get into this one. I would recommend this to fans of science fiction.
