I do love 80's cheese. Terrible movies cheer me up.

I mean, the 3rd level was pretty much completely unnecessarily and incredibly protracted. The non-stop action of the last 40 minutes eventually got tiresome. It's virtually impossible to maintain the same level of suspense for that long a period of time.

So yeah, great idea, could have been a great action flick, but was kinda ruined by sloppy scriptwriting.

Been a long time coming and I thoroughly enjoyed it. However, it made me appreciate High Fidelity less. It was basically High Fidelity except it was more of a fresh and original idea and it had less references to music and more references to literature and identity. Really great film.
