Okay, maybe a wee bit exaggerated, heh. But considering how much critics panned and otherwise tore apart this movie when it was in theaters, I really quite enjoyed the film more than I expected. Lots of great action sequences, cool visual effects and an interesting take on a future society.
Ewan McGregor was good in his dual role as Lincoln, and Scarlett Johanssen illuminated the screen as Jordan. And the supporting cast shone as well, which included Sean Bean, Steve Buscemi, Ethan Phillips, Djimon Hounsou and Michael Clarke Duncan.
Like many others, I was perplexed by the bizarre sound issue on the DVD -- the English audio track is only in Dolby 2.0, and it's the French that gets the 5.1 treatment! Usually it's the other way around. I've never seen that before, even in Canada, and it definitely is a kind of rip-off. If that's a Canada-only issue, then I'll definitely consider dropping by Amazon.COM if I decide to buy the movie.
Otherwise, it's a very enjoyable popcorn film and a great showcase for gorgeous it-girl Johanssen. If there are any other clones of her lying about, send one over!
