  • Horrible movie

    By Aldeepa234
    It was a waste of time.
  • Starring Natalie Portman's Forehead, of course.

    Earnest, ponderous, pseudo-meaningful blob of a film. The only consolations: a) it was the 99-cent rental, b) didn't have to endure it in a theater followed by a panel discussion, and, c) it ended. Strangely compelling to-the-death nipple-pulling finale. Didn't expect that "twist".
  • Yes

    Beautiful, meaningful and thought provoking.
  • Freaky and Labored

    By The Iron Marshal
    This is one of those movies that works hard at being unique by copying the ideas from other movies and books. There is a lot of Stephen King in this movie. But not the Stephen King of the books. More like the Stephen King of the failed movies or TV movies. Knowledge of anatomy and science is missing, even though they made an attempt to pull this in by the main character's job roles. I especially liked how they had lots of ammunition for the rifles, but no spare magazines on their persons. Generally a labored film that you should only watch for the 99 cent rental.

    Scripts and execution this weak makes one think we could all make a movie as newbies and stil come out better. Do not waste your time
  • Horrible Movie

    By Shocky1352
    Natalie Portman is one of my favorite actresses, which made this movie even worse than if it was just some “regular” actress in the lead. The whole premise of this movie is unbelievable, and poorly explained.
  • Missed opportunity

    By Tropic_Designer
    A missed opportunity to create something good. At the end we looked at each other and said "really?" We rented this for .99 and we still felt cheated...a bad movie is still a bad movie no matter the cost
  • Not very good

    By koolkarim94
    The movie is reminiscent to the movie The Box. Good concept, but bad execution. The film is too long, and its ending wasn’t very well written.
  • Not great, not terrible.

    By ThatGuyAaron
    It was mediocre. It's worth the 99cent rental but I'm not sure that I would pay more for it.
  • ...What?

    By Raging Infidel
    The Rotten Tomato reviews could not be more biased. This was extremely poorly produced. Bad CGI, actors who don't know how to hold/shoot a gun, an ending that was a flashy attempt at being deeply thought provoking... There is no substance to this movie, and any reviews that give this a glowing review, clearly have their own agendas in mind.
