    Much better ending than Philip K. Dick's short story of the same titular name. For about the first 40 minutes to an hour, follows pretty close to the short story, and for movie sakes, adds alot more characters and huge action setpieces ala John Woo.

    While not Woo's most visually exciting picture, it certainly has its Woo moments (and of course a digital flying dove).

    Second row at Capitol Theatre with Claudio Simonetti's Goblin performing the soundtrack as the film played. Afterwards, playing a few tracks from other Goblin/Claudio Simonetti horror scores (including Dawn of the Dead and Deep Red). Such an awesome experience. Can't go wrong with some classic Italian Prog.

I don’t want to bring up more of the plot because the plot is literally a spoiler and this film is best experienced when not knowing anything else at all.

    Going in I had HUGE expectations. The…
