Well, no need to describe the entire movie (I'll post link to the RT site for the synopsis).

Very good movie. Very inventive. Did it "blow me away"?? Nope. Again, as usual, I get all excited from reading the great reviews and develop these sky-high expectations, and the reality just didn't quite meet it. Many critics mention it as a definite one of the years's best. Some stated the best sci-fi flick in last few years.

Very solid acting performances all around...including a little kid. Again, enjoyed it. Very engrossing....but did it "WOW" me?? Nah.

I agree with your assessment, AOLFoolman. The first few minutes had me ready to leave as it started looking really formulaic...but they turned the plot around and made it interesting, and the dialogue/conflict between the two male leads was very compelling. They kept the tension high as well.

Definitely not a WOW for me, but an enjoyable watch for sure.

I had my expectations set low after Prometheus, and so this one was a very pleasant surprise. In addition to the bang-bang and FX, there was actually some acting and some philosophical questions that made you think. I thought it was very well done and I recommend seeing it without seeing the trailer.
