this is a very good movie with twists and turns great ending
This was brillant, talk about twists and curves, this movie has you sitting on the edge of your seat right from the beginning to the end. Loved it.
It was ok but not as exciting as I expected, not that thrilling to me.
This was a movie with supernatural and end of days themes, with a completely unexpected ending... it kept us guessing until very near the end. I would recommend it for those who like twists in the plot and something a little different.
This film looks terrific, with loads of beautiful scenic frames as well as some much-better-than-decent special effects. The story begins very nicely too, with a neat time-lapse- prophecy device that... Read more is very well set up. There is also eventually a magnificent train wreck which is on its own almost worth the price of admission. Unfortunately beginning with the train wreck the film itself begins to go completely off the rails. It ends up with an utterly nonsensical conclusion which would have to be described as "mystico-deus-ex-machina" blather. The ending is utterly woeful and so stupid that it really ruins everything. My conclusion here then, is that, really there is nothing worse than alien angels dressed up like people but who act like mute rock stars.
This was sure one great movie, good story, good acting, full of suspense, I wasn't expecting the ending, really really enjoyed it, something different.
Good Movie kept you wondering. Not as far fetched as one might imagine.
A great Nicolas Cage movie and one that has a story line with suspense.
This film had some really nice action moments, a great idea for a story but was just really poorly done. The script suffered poorly from trying to blend 3 or more genres into the one movie and the 'twist'... Read more ending was seriously the worst ending to a film I can remember, which was a shame because it also was offering some of the best eye-candy in terms of special effects and action i've seen in awhile at the same time. The ending probably would have worked if it had been set up properly but this just left me thinking 'what the heck' instead of the usual 'nice' I feel when I know I have been set up for a surprise. Nicolas Cage has been bagged out lately for a lot of his movies, I've always liked him but after seeing this film I'm switching sides to dubbing him as terrible. Even Rose Byrne whom I have loved in every other role she plays was starting to annoy me. Haven't been this disappointed in a film in ages. We need a 1/2 star option.
This is definately more Sci-Fi then Thriller, I was never on the edge of my seat, especially after the first encouter with the aliens, after this point the movie seemed to get worse and worse. It could... Read more have been really good, if they hadn't of had the aliens involved. Overall, this movie just made me want to laugh.
