Decent movie if you understand the budget. Some fun action and gore despite the special effects. The opening sequence is actually quite effective, but they should have dropped the name stars and used that money for the effects.

they should have used that money and continue the story from the intro (which, i agree, is quite effective), and dropped the rest of the script.

a trainwreck of a movie. i can't imagine it gets any better on repeat viewings.

Saw it on HDNET. It was kind of interesting, but I wouldn't buy it. If you haven't seen it yet, the style of the film kind of resembles Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, where almost everything besides the actors is digitally added.

What happened to it coming soon to theaters? I've been waiting for it to come out for about 2 months now.

Tried to watch it - couldn't finish it. Not worth the disc it will be printed on, IMO.

This movie was absolutely horrible. OP please try and watch it elsewhere before blind buying it.

It had a limited release in April, though nowhere that I noticed. It was made available through other sources before then even, at least in the US. It had late 2008 releases in a few places such as the UK, and January '09 in other countries. By the time it had a limited release in the US, it could already be downloaded on Xbox Live (They advertised that you could see it before it hits theaters). It has been available on DirecTV on Demand for a while now too, though I only recently got that service and am not sure how long. Seems that the theater wasn't their main focus for the pre-dvd/bd release of this movie in the US. Dunno what happened exactly, maybe it was a marketing test, maybe the performance in theaters in other countries along with some negative reviews made them go a different direction. In any case, you aren't likely gonna see it in a theater now, and out of the options, Blu-ray of course is going to be the best, or at least has the ability to be.
