OK, it's beautifully shot, and mostly well-acted, but it's about as subtle and thoughtful as Mandingo. Worse, it's oddly unfeeling.
Good cast wasted - except for a few funny lines, the script is awful and the art direction and pacing misguided.
Predictable sophomore slump but improves the pace of the sloppy 2nd novel. More jabberjays and Sutherland-Hoffman!
Pretty provocative for kids' sci-fi. But it's no Starship Troopers.
If only they could have got Mamet to do a re-write....
