When the ridiculous and the sublime come within kissing distance like this, you know that, script or no script, Hollywood has found a way to have a wonderful time.

There's lots of shooting, grenades exploding and things going bang and, even if the film gets bogged down by some needless religious mumbo-jumbo, the whole thing looks great in a grimy, Blade Runner kind of way.

This is a gruesome film, even by modern standards. It is also utterly devoid of a point, or interesting ideas.

Are excitable eight-year-olds - this movie's intellectual target audience - really going to wait another ten years before they can watch it legally?

The production notes describe this as an epic sci-fi action thriller like no other, which is on every level a blessing - it's like being dropped into a tar pit of underlit tedium.

A cranium-pulverisingly dull and badly acted sci-fi action non-thriller.

But a screenplay that sounds like it was hewn from chunks of wood is a great leveller, so everyone comes out looking equally inept.

Rubbish CGI, rubbish acting, rubbish storytelling. Throw in a few mutants and a better-than-it-deserves cast and you get this sci-fi timewaster.

A cheesy attempt to throw everything at the screen, this futuristic thriller would no doubt work much better as a videogame

There's no doubting the frenetic energy of Simon Hunter's steampunk thriller with its deft mixing of CGI and live action. The mutants are artforms of grotesqueness and truly terrifying.
