even with the great ideas the writing shows this film takes things way too far.
it is an overwhelming experience that does work wonders as an audiovisual spectacle for most of its running time.
however, BOYLE makes some very odd choices in the third act regarding its unnecessary new villain.
why aren't we able to see him?
what a cast…
BYRNE, EVANS, MURPHY, SANADA, STRONG, WONG, YEOH
who would have thought back then that those first two would go on to have the huge careers they now have?
extra points for killing every single character and still make it a somehow hopeful ending.
extra points for delivering such an unapologetically ambitious piece of science fiction.
