(nl) wrote: Right from the intro credits (which had very poor CG), I envisioned this as a mix between Maze Runner and Hunger Games. Interesting concept, but very lacking in execution.From the start, we meet our first character, and quickly a second, and it started showing some promise. Then it went downhill faster and more devastating than an avalanche.We meet two others, who have somehow been in this place for 5 days without food or water that we know of, and who also haven't thought of exploring anything in that time. And that's about par for the course for much of the rest of the movie. We meet people who have no memories, except when the plot wants them to, but only to provide some exposition.By the end, people start acting differently based on what they remember, but it's still not clear to the audience what their motivation suddenly is. Very little is explained, and it seems as though that was the intent, and to try to set up a sequel (fat chance).All in all, it's not completely unwatchable, but if you come out of the end of the movie with an understanding of what's going on, I'd be surprised. Good luck.

The tension between Hawking and Hoyle was portrayed to dramatic effect, but I wonder how they actually were as colleagues.

(nl) wrote: Boldly tackles social and fiscal issues with unapologetic vengeance. One of the most thought provoking films I've watched and mused over in quite some time.
(fr) wrote: A story about an immigrating family from Italy to Germany with all there ups and downs in the 1960s. In focus is the relationship between the two brothers and their love stories with girls...Very well narrated movie with nice dialogues and very good cast!
(ag) wrote: At its worst, a somewhat incomplete thought and perhaps too meandering; at its best, a gritty, raw piece of cinma vrit with some of the most honest and real performances ever captured by film. The camera work and editing (particularly that of Ray's drunken rambling sequence) almost builds itself into an extra character and plays a bit of a "fly on the wall", voyeuristic role.As Gary Oldman's first film, one can envision years of gritty, vibrant, well-directed character-driven dramas fulfilling a long and successful career. As Oldman's only film to date, one wonders 'what happened?' Perhaps writing AND directing such an intense, low-budget indie piece was enough hard work for a lifetime for the accomplished thespian.All tolled, the film stands on its own merits and, although it wasn't exactly my kind of flick, it was a damn well-made film.
(br) wrote: I am not aware this was an adaptation from a novel. The flick tried to explore subjects like homosexuality & BDSM, plus certain dramatic element, like psychopathic thriller. But it just turned out to be so freaking awful, coarse & confusing.
(br) wrote: Surprisingly good movie. Has a better story than the original and Billy Drago makes a great villian. Also good to watch for Angelina Jolie making her lead debut.

(de) wrote: A poorly done Night Of The Living Dead knockoff... noticeably missing George A Romero's touch. The cast all gets killed off early in the movie. Hard to follow this one. Stick to the stuff that works.
