My gosh, this has to be the biggest mess and nonsenical movie I ever saw. NOTHING in it made any sense WHATSOEVER! It really feels like they had 3-4 different scripts and that one temp just tripped and mixed the pages all up and suddenly nothing makes any sense anymore.
Huge disappointment for me....is the George Lucas syndrom at work here? Namely that a director becomes so hugely successful that everybody just shuts up and is sucking up to him when in the past, when they where younger, there were tons of people shooting down their nonsense and stupid ideas and concepts?
I think I could write pages and make a scene by scene review of the movie and pointing out the stupidity but I think REDLETTERMEDIA sums it up quite nicely:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x1YuvUQFJ0&feature=plcp
Maybe I could add a few things but it is probably best just to forget about the whole stupid movie. (My gods......the thing is, you could somehow forgive the absolute mess of a story since while you are watching it for the first time there are SO MANY mysterious and suspense building scenes and it is only when the end credits roll that you have the definite answer that NONE of those scenes ultimately lead to ANYTHING making sense but what I COULDN'T ignore even while the movie was rolling was that they send a ship on a trillion dollar expensive expedition and EVERY SINGLE crewmember on board is a COMPLETE moron. Seriously, there is not a SINGLE competent person on board this ship and the ONLY move ANYONE of them did that was actually kind of smart was Theron toasting the sick spacezombie and not letting him back on board and this was presented as something horrible. That being said, if I were the captain I wouldn't have let them back in the second they removed their helmets for the first time. I mean how stupid was that? And the freaking robot is able to smuggle the equivalent of a biological warhead back on board with anybody noticing......what the hell? JESUS CHRIST this movie makes the Voyager crew look like professionals.)
Ah well, there are movies which doesn't make a lot of sense and are still enjoyable and there are those movies that are so stupid it makes you angry. Guess this falls in the later category.
