I rented this movie out because I like the actor Vin Diesel. He had his ups and downs when it came to movies, so I was hoping this was an up.

After viewing it, I was left with a bland taste in my mouth. I was disapointed by the last 20 minutes of the movie and I'm still trying to understand what the heck happened!

Its started really good, kept you intrigued and all, but they forgot to add some details in this movie along the way. A lot of things happened, but you have no clue why it does.

Un fortunately I hate movies that don't explain why certain things happen, much less when you get to the good part, where you're sitting there, waiting to finally get the answer to why Aurora is like that and BAM. They fast forward the whole thing in 5 minutes and its THE END.

You are litterally left on the couch, wondering what the f*** just happened to this movie!?

I'm not sorry to have watched this movie, but I definately am disapointed that it was crushed the way it did at the end.

Babylon A.D.(released Aug/08)stars Vin Diesel,an almost totally unrecognizable Gerard Depardieu,and others in this futuristic yarn.I was expecting alot more from this film,something closer to or on a par with his Riddick films,but I was sorely disappointed.
The plot is all over the map and can be hard to follow,but here is what I gleaned from it.Van Diesel,in 2019,is a mercenary for hire.This is a world that is in utter chaos,with countries fighting countries like never before and people relying on no one but themselves to survive.Vin Diesel,once a U.S. citizen,has been forced to survive in now war torn Russia.The streets are chock full of merchants selling death of every description.The film starts out in the now,but we go back six days to the circumstances that led up to that point.Vin Diesel was hired by a local Russian mobster(Depardieu)to get a young girl raised in a convent to NYC.Even though Van Diesel has no passport,he is given one to get her there.The mobster in turn has been paid by the girl's "father"/creator to ensure her safety.It seems her "father" genetically engineered her years before but the woman who paid him to do it,and who now runs a powerful religious sect,the Neolites,wants her back.The "father" squirreled the girl away in a convent in Russia until the proper time came.The "proper time" means the girl who Vin Diesel must escort to New York is now pregnant;done so with no outside"help".This is a "miraculous conception" the religious leader wants back,to show the world and become ever the more powerful.
Vin Diesel escorts the girl and her caretaker with him across Russia.They are dogged all the way by both Neolites and the girl's "father's"men.

I think Babylon A.D. is a film that ultimately suffered from bloated expectations, in parts also probably due to the awesome trailers it had. At the end of the day, no one will remember this as a great film but it's a decent viewing experience for action fans. Vin Diesel is Vin Diesel and Michelle Yeoh delivers the best performance I've seen of her so far.

The action scenes are okay, if not great but what impressed me was the dizzying amounts of different set locations. Desert? check. Mountainous areas? check? Icy blizzards? check New York City? check. This is one globe-trotting film. Check it out, you might enjoy it.

Vin, I said it before and I'll say it again. You are the Baddy with the big heart and that's why I enjoy the most in your movies. Let no one ever say that Vin has not cut his teath as an action figure. With this in mind I await your next movies with great anticipation.

It was not what I expected but it turned out to be very interesting movie an I really enjoyed it. If you are a Vin Diesel fan you will really like this and if you are not a fan you would enjoy the movie also.

Had to have it. Loved It. Had to have this to replace the good old VHS tapes. I would recommend these movies to all who like action.

Format: DVD
When the director of a movie disses his own creation as it's released, you know that you're in for something spectacular. Spectacularly ghastly.

Alas, such is the case with Mathieu Kassovitz's "Babylon A.D." You can see why the director denounced his own work -- the end result is an incoherently chaotic thriller that comes across as the malformed, mildly psychotic love child of "Children of Men" and "Blade Runner." There are some really bad movies out there, but "Babylon A.D."'s incoherence puts it in a place of honor.

A Russian mobster (Gerard Depardieu) hires a thuggish mercenary with the bizarre name of Toorop (Vin Diesel) to do a simple task -- transport a girl named Aurora (Melanie Thierry) and her guardian Noelite nun (Michelle Yeoh) to New York. But it soon becomes obvious that Aurora is no ordinary charge -- she seems to have precognition and inherent knowledge that a sheltered girl could never have, such as how to operate a submarine. No, I am not making this up.

But it soon becomes obvious to Toorop that more is going on here than it appears -- apparently a malign High Priestess (Charlotte Rampling) is aiming to create a genetically-engineered messiah, which Aurora is now pregnant with (she's a virgin, by the way). Now Toorop -- whose cold, dark, selfish heart has been touched by Aurora -- must try to keep her safe from those who would use her...

The movie may be called "Babylon A.D.," but a better title would be "Babble-on Addled." Apparently Kassovitz's original creation was thoroughly sliced'n'diced in the editing room, and seemingly random parts were stitched back together. Therefore, this Frankenstein's monster is graced with more violence than plot, and manages to be both painfully simplistic and incomprehensible.
