(br) wrote: Someone thought the name 'Autumn Blood' sounded way cool. Me? I think it has absolutely nothing to do with this 'meh' movie. The lead actress is an exceptional actor, but the story is dark, and devoid of many interesting twists.
(ca) wrote: Pretty sweet movie. I think nails the abortion issue on the head pretty nicely. Very engaging to watch despite its slow pace.
(br) wrote: The Zemeckis version got a lot of hate but this one makes you appreciate the things it did have - good acting and impressive CGI work. While it's true that this version is more faithful to the original poem, and may hold some entertainment value for 10-14 year olds, it has very little value as a piece of film.

(it) wrote: Boring, plot holes, inconsistencies and impossibilities. No coherent logic behind the plot.
(au) wrote: Wicked B-grade Action/Horror. Effects that hold up, an interesting monster and heaps of fun.
(it) wrote: Bloody love it. This film inspired me to buy a board and dodge the round brown fish in the north sea every weeekend for years. It was filmed in St. Ives which I have a deep fondness for through past trips with distant friends. I agree a bit cheesy but a great watch none the less. Macahecee, Macahecee!

(nl) wrote: Star Wars was a hit and every Hollywood studio was looking to cash in.Universal decided to invest in veteran television producer Glen A. Larson's Exodus in space. This is the shorter, tighter, more focused, plot driven 125 minute version of the 139 minute television pilot. Hideously expensive to produce, Universal, always a very practical studio, assembled the theatrical version ahead of the series debut and tested the waters in Canada, before releasing it worldwide. There is the germ of a great idea present in the film's beginning and a likeable cast with a easygoing chemistry do have charm. Shame about the chimp in a suit dog, sorry, daggit and the obvious reuse of effects shots. Signs of the terrible, heavy handed cutes and over reliance on spectacle over character development that would doom the series. Director Richard Colla has a strong eye, avoiding the pitfalls of television cinematography. He shoots wide and slowly reframes shots rather then the usual patchwork of close ups that make up televsion of this period. The lighting is suitably dark and moody, in keeping with the tone of the piece. While this film is not a patch on Ronald D. Moore and David Eick's 2003 treatment of the same material it is an entertaining ride, enlivened by Stu Philip's outstanding score. Hands down the production's highlight.

(ag) wrote: (15%)Not really a Van Damme movie as he only plays a very small role as one of baddies bodyguards. Almost the whole movie is dull, with only the beautiful Maltese setting adding any unique factor to separate it from hundreds of other movies, many of them better.
(ru) wrote: Cusack and Jane add appeal to characters that would otherwise have been fairly bland (as is pretty much everything else about the movie). Ventoura and Garvey are OK too, but aren't exactly tested. The urban-set opening car chase would have been tricky on a low budget, but the open road bits could have been a lot more interesting. Trenchard-Smith has done far better than this (though, sadly, not recently), but among the cliches, undercooked plot and excessive dialogue, it has its moments.Why does the daughter have an American accent? That doesn't even make sense.
