This movie will stick in your memory cap whether you loved it or (think) you hated it. It's creepy It's funny and cute. It keeps you paying attention until the very end- which means success! M. Night is back- although no cameo here. Great acting all around. Great "Blair Witch"-esq camera work (but better). They could have made the final conclusion better with more intensity, but definitely worth a viewing. Rating: 8/10
Watched this in IMAX 70mm. Imagine 'Saving Private Ryan' but on water instead of land. The production value is incredible. It's very realistic. Superbly acted. Beautiful moments and also sad ones. Rating: 8.5/10
Remarkable that this movie has such cult classic status. It has held up miserably over the past 30 years. Yes, it's an interesting concept- but soooo many flaws.... the Spanish guy (from the Middle East) is actually played by a Scottish guy- while the Scottish guy has an Eastern Europe accent? Go figure. That actually makes more sense than most of the movie. Rating: 6/10
Great cinematography and a few good action sequences. In a similar style to the Bourne movies, but not quite the same caliber. Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds both have solid and believable performances. The first half of the movie is fast-paced, intriguing, and suspenseful, the second half slowly falters, just barely keeping you puttering along. Worth a rental though, if you're in the mood for a good (enough) action movie.
