Aussie cult actor Vernon Wells seems a bit gay in this film for some reason.
Blech. I love terrible action movies with a passion, but that one just jumps the shark. Boring action scenes, lame villains (seriously, a mesh shirt?), ****ty main characters, and who told Arnold he could act? That opening scene where Arnold gets the ice cream to the face was just painful.

That movie is like the worst stereotype of the 80's action movie. And it doesn't even seem to be trying to do it. Fail. And I want to bang Alyssa Milano. I have no desire to bang her as a small child. Fail.

Yeah its pretty bad should probably have a Manowar soundtrack for sure. I also have no desire to bang any small children, but she was the standout actress in the film, that included such atrocities as Arnold and Rae Dawn Chong.

Hey now, as a preteen I spent countless hours… um… thinking hard about Rae Dawn Chong. Don't you dare disparage my girlfriend.

I didn't say anything about her looks, I would have stuck my puck in her five hole for sure.

A cut price Shutter Island except that it came out 3 years earlier so if you liked that film then give this a go. Smaller on budget and far more subtle.

A great low budget concept enhanced by Postlethwaites presence but let down on an over reliance on previous documentary footage that could be perceived as biased. However; the concept of a lone guy sat in front of a computer screen (circa 2055) documenting mans downfall for future generations is intriguing and works well at times. All the documentary footage is real and adds gravitas but the over reliance on it means the purpose of the film is lost a little.

Pretentious twaddle or a masterpiece of modern cinema? I can't make my mind up either way. I loved it and hated it.

After all that intensive viewing I switched off and watched:

Why don't the producers of the Bond movies give the director Rob Cohen a shot at the next film? The guy can direct action so well and to be fair it is a Bond movie with a bad soundtrack. Completely preposterous film but who cares when the action is this good?
