Critic Review - Film.com

Writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson ... attempts to fill out a flimsy plot structure by making the characters' comings and goings overly convoluted.

I feel like you were probably asleep when you watched this. You should see it when you are sober.

The definition of awesome has suffered an awful transgression!

IS correct. There are far more worthy films in the cinema that deserve your cash. WS Anderson should never be allowed behind a camera again. His films are bloody awful with the exception of Event Horizon.

You people act like these films are the worst films ever?!? If you think so, then clearly you haven't seen enough movies! ;P Don't any of you know how to just enjoy a film for what is anymore?!? In this case, just pure 'popcorn' entertainment. These films don't pretend to be anything more or anything less. These are not high art people, just fun, & should be 'only' viewed as such. But hey, to each his own I gues..

lol this movie was a clusterfuck. I've been a fan of the videogame franchise forever~ but good God. They took everything they could out of all the videogames and tried to smuck it together in one extravaganza of Fail regardless if it made sense or not.
Visually it was awesome~ but much like the direction the game franchise is going, they left out the very thing that made so many people love the series and games in the first place; creepiness. The first few movies were so much more effective because it had that creepy zombie feel to it. In the first few installments, when you encountered a super mutation, it really affected you and you had this "oh shit! What the hell is that? D8" moment. In this installment, there were so many over the top things one after another I ceased caring.
Its fun action, but I was actually getting bored.

100% agree!

me too!!! I think this one is probably the dullest of them all. Apparently, to much action doesn't equate to being amazed for an entire film. Who knew? :)
