So Close to Being Very Good
on January 3, 2005
This was actually better than I thought it would be. There is a lot to like about the movie, with some heavy messages and very good special effects. Exactly how did the good scientist who created the robots die, was it suicide or was he murdered and if so by who? Could it have been robots programmed by a human or are the robots taking over and if so how can that be given the three prinipals that protect humans from harm?
This is a well thought out script, my only real problems are with the damn "HOLLYWOOD" moments with the hero flying through the air in slow motion with guns ablazing or the chase scenes with the hero oh so close to falling to his death while leaping to catch a precious object but just barely able to hang on (what a surprise).
One of those movies I wish the English had made. This one is pretty good but a little too sanitized
