    Is that it?

    Your review?

    No plot spoilers? No word on CGI? No classic diatribe on the acting skills of Cruise? I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I ask for a proper review and not this slipshod, half-hearted, nonsense above!!

    On the one hand, it has Morgan "I'm God" Freeman...

    On the other, it has Tom "I'm not saying it was Aliens, but it was totally Aliens" Cruise...


    I don't know whether to watch this or not.

    Saw it the other day.

    A very good film I thought, a bit Hollywood at times with 10 minute shots of Tom Cruise in the sunlight but the CGI is amazing! Also the story line can be quite touching. Just the right amount of shooting, riding, flying, naked women for the blokes:P. I'm no film critic so no in-depth review from me. All I will say is its well worth the price!

    Don't read reviews - go and watch it
    If your a flim xxxx then maybe don't bother - if you like watching enjoyable good sci-fi films then off you go

    And become part of an Effective Team

    Just got back from cinemas - have to agree, it's a good film, but it is very 'I'm Tom Cruise Look at Me'

    CGI is superb though, very much getting to the point now of what is real and what is not.

    8/10

    The one that I had written is mainly a view on the tech within it, less so the plot spoilers as I don't like either! (there is a little blerb of the setup to the movie of the movie)

    Good plot, cinematics and CGI, well worth going to see.

    However, its a 12A rated film with simulated sex, partial nudity, mild swearing and a very clear use of the f**k word.
    Not sure I would have been happy if I had taken my youngest as some people did.

    This one sounds right up my street. Love a good looking futuristic action with high production values, and if they commit to the premise strongly, I don't mind if it's a little on the cheesy side (some faves: Minority Report, I Robot, The Island).

    Think I'll give it a rattle and come back with my verdict (which I predict now will probably be "AWESOME! Go see it!")

    I went last night and was quite disappointed. FAR too many moody shots of Tom Cruise (looking quite old, I thought!)

    The first bit was very very slow and then when things started to change, it was a bit "oh, things are completely not what I thought - OK then, I'll go with that" for my liking.

    Not too much in the sex/nudity/swearing department I thought.

    Some loose ends too which I can't mention of course.
    CGI was very good but overall not that thrilling a film. 'Cept the droids are really scary!
