Well, I have to say, I expected worse...

I don't really have strong feelings about this movie in either direction, because I never got very involved. The action scenes and few original stunts were enough to keep me seated, but other than that, this movie doesn't have much going for it.

There are a lot of loose ends and the base concepts of the movie are sketchy and futuristic. Most movies like this have more explanation for why I should believe this future technology is possible. It wasn't believable enough to be taken seriously and it wasn't cartoon enough to delete the laws of the universe. I mean, at least in Minority Report, they had human psychics predicting the future, in this movie they just throw a bunch of lights and metal together and say it predicts the future.

I must also mention the sad attempt to rip off Pulp Fiction...Attention Movie Makers: glowing suitcases with undeclared contents, only worked for Pulp Fiction. It is not to be repeated. It doesn't work, and it just makes you look lame.

Ben Affleck just stares blankly most of the movie as to look worried or concerned, but he was most likely just thinking about cupcakes.

Uma Thurman proved herself to be more than a badass in Kill Bill, so I will excuse her for making this movie. Though she is nice to look at, she doesn't really do anything.

Overall, it gets two angels for the action, but, don't expect anything more. There's no real story, far fetched and insufficiently explained ideas, no sex, no nudity, and no awesome death. Yay for the PG-13 rating.
