Starts out as a job delivering a girl/nun to New York during post apocalyptic world. He finds the girl is more important than he thinks. Has fight and chase scenes.

Cool little scyfy movie to which avid fans of the genre will find amusing. Not great but pretty cool special effects. The film had the potential to be impactful with a wonderful concept and glimpse into an imaginary futuristic universe serving as the films streghnth. Unfortunately that's as far as 72 million will get you in a film which boast such a promising addition to the scyfy genre only to fall victim to terrible acting from a terrible screen play which obviously failed to be properly excutedâ< up against a film which needed all the peices to work in order help it's believability. it's hard to fully take in this story with b list actors all working around a lead actor who really doesn't do well as a leading man. Once again here's another film which serves as a prime example of why Vin Desiel is only as good as the movie is and it's almost impossible for him to carry a movie on his own. So obviously 72 million in this case was either too much or too little which is a shame because the ideas presented in Babaloyn A.D. are actually promising. Those ideas alone are the only reason this film is watchable. but with a weak script and cast, sadly, this movie and it's ideas will be forgotten and this film will just become another 2 hr time slot filler for the scyfy channel.

Hilariously bad film & diabolically poor & lacklustre ending when compared to the set pieces that had gone before it. What is the point of the film? There is none.

This isn't as awful as you probably heard/read it was. Vin Diesel is gruff and believable. Michelle Yeoh is always good in a butt-kicking way. Mélanie Thierry is a bit much in the theatrics department but it grows on you. A straight-forward, dystopian future story line with plenty of action as well as some incidents that leave you scratching your head make it a bit choppy but overall I enjoyed it more than any Syfy channel movie which is what all the critics appear to believe it on par with.

This film has a great premise, intact with the right screen writer this could well be an action franchise.

Unfortunately Mathieu Kassovitz destroyed any hope of that, the executive who green lite this screen play needs to be fired if he hasn't already.

Poor script, poor acting, poor action sequences, poor everything.

Just when you thought they had finished with the film, they slap an extra 15 minutes on there.

Arguably Vin Diesel worst performance, he didn't even look like he was interested in this film.

The same with the other actors, all they saw were $ signs. A waste of money and a waste of time will I ever watch this a again, hell no.....

Pas sûr ! Deja comme acteur Vin est Bof, avec toutes ces répliques cliché et sa non-émotion ! Et que dire de la finale... Si on peut appeler ça une finale.

It was good to start but the end does not make sence at all. Left a big hole in the story.

This one had its flaws.  The story was quite underdeveloped but if you can get past that it's not super bad.  The cinematography is amazing.  I love sci-fi and I love seeing visions of the future especially future America which never seems to succumb to the rest of the world's problems in films.  So if you can ignore the plot holes then this is recommended.

In this action film, Vin Diesel plays a veteran-turned-mercenary who takes a job of escorting a woman from Russia to America but a cult thinks a secret she carries inside of her will bring a new Messiah to them. The effects in this were okay but that is about it. The action is decent at best but the cast, acting, script, and overall film was just bad.

Don't watch this movie, don't bother, as there is no reason to watch this movie, Vin Diesel disappoints,the script as well and so do the action scenes.

This movie is GOOD. It is NOT the BEST movie ever. But it is really under-rated. I am NOT a Vin Diesel fan. But with the right story, he carries it. And the Cinematography is also notable. You portably need an IQ above a house-plant to appreciate this movie. You do NOT need to LOVE this movie. But it is worth watching.

Worst movie I've ever seen.
January 27, 2016
Good film. Especially when you watch it like for the third time because at first it does not make much of a sense. Like the style,script and the actual reason. It could be better. If it would it would be great but still it is very good sci fi. Do not know why so low score.

Kind of a mess, but has its moments.

I still have no idea what this is about. I feel like it tried to much to copy "the children of men". Barely anything worked, the action scenes were terrible the dialogue was even worse. Wouldn't recommend this at all.
