Such a flawd film. Looks stunning, amazing set pieces and attention to detail. It's more of an idealistic movie than a horror movie compared to Alien which was surprising. The score is strange for that reason, slightly too upbeat which diminished any tension. I actually thought the music at the beginning of the film echoed Superman:the movie which straight away threw me. Unfortunately the story makes no sense and has at least a dozen major plot holes which will leave…
Tempted to walk out but managed to stay if only to justify the money spent on the cinema ticket. Worst film i have seen in a longtime, made worse by having glimpses of absolute genius in Cage's performance.....glimpses. Piss poor writing and direction that had no structure...equal failure. The Crank films were no doubt throwaway fun but any pace and intensity that the directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor showed in that series is completely missing here. This could have been Bad Lieutenant...with fucking flames. You Bastards.
