The movie has a nice look -- gray, rusted metal exposed to Siberian and Bering Strait snow. What it lacks is coherence and a compelling reason for us to take this often-abrupt journey with Aurora, Toorop and Sister Rebeka.
If the eventual director's cut DVD proves this movie to be a masterpiece, then I'll be first in line to buy it. Given what's currently unfolding on the big screen, however, it's no wonder the director is so eager to disown it.
Babylon A.D. is a poorly-assembled sci-fi melodrama bereft of excitement or intelligence that will only remind me of the director's earlier, better film because its translated title echoes my sentiments about this one - namely, hatred.
