I wanted to but couldn't!
Ok... Let's be honest. It cannot be the best movie but is quite enjoyable. The movie has the potential to develop a great plot for future movies
The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
I thought this film was relatively far fetched however, easy to get into if watched from the start. I thought the story line and quality of acting was good and really got me into the film. It is quite complicated and requires full attention if you are to follow and understand the story line.However, the whole reason for me writing this review was to share my disappointment of the ending. I found the ending of this film awful and gave the story line no point. If this film were to have a good ending I would have given it a much higher rating but I felt that it was contradicting of the story line. I would recommend this film for people who like futuristic and sci-fi films but if not this film isn't for you.
In a near future, mercenary Toorop is hired to take a woman named Aurora from aConvent in to New York. In return, he will receive a large amount of money and a clear passport. Toorop joins Aurora and her guardian Sister Rebeka as they cross the dangerous Russian landscape chased by mercenaries that also want Aurora. On their journey, Toorop discovers that Aurora has special abilities and once in New York, Aurora discloses that she is a virgin and pregnant with twin., Toorop realise that there is something sinister behind his mission and that he and Sister Rebeka are not part of Gorsky's plans.Another huge failure from Diesel and Co, this was more of the studios fault rather than the star and director, and it's clear that this was chopped up to the point that it's almost difficult to comprehend what is going on other that we move from set piece to set piece with little happening I between.If you liked Diesel in A Man Apart and other below average offerings from him (more or less everything he's done post Pitch Black), you will discover that he plays the same character in every film, looking moody and fed up.Mark Strong and Cyrano De Bergerac show up for no good reason, and the whole thing finishes abruptly without much explanation of anything.It's Children of Men for people with a non-existent attention span, and while not as bad as it made out to be, it's pretty darn close.
Terrible script, terrible storyline, cheap graphics, total rip of Blade Runner, practically shot for shot in places, the ending makes no sense, and i like Kassovitz, La Haine was amazing, he was great in Amelie, just the worst film ever, Babylon AD, big dull dud, Vin Diesal mutters through out. All it needs is the Wilhelm scream, nothing is explained in ad i don't need to see a dead cat chopped up and eaten. Gerard Depardieu looks like a potato, it also rips off Star Wars when hes in Tattooine, god i cant hate this film enough. Im sure there is a wall with wet paint on it that is preferable to watching this film, its 90 minutes of my life i wont get back, what about Ramplings character? What happens to her? she just walks off after apparently searching for her kid for years, come on! I mean the only difference is she actually stayed fully clothed for once. Avoid at all costs.
I can honestly say this is the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. Ever. I think one of the first scenes pretty much sums up the whole move- Vin Deisel is sitting in an old car, and to get from point a to point b is lifted up by a magnet hanging from a helicopter, and transported that way, in an old rusty car swinging from a chain suspended from the helicopter. Why doesn't he just GET INTO THE HELICOPTER? I remember thinking. From there it goes steadily downhill. I feel as tho the director was aspiring to be somewhat like M. Night SHayamalamananamanan, as the twists came fast and hard. there were so many in fact that the viewer is left completely unattatched to anything in the story, and completely utterly confused. The black twin at the end pretty much summed it up. How the heck can one twin be black and one be white. And then VInnies final "come inside, kids, there's a storm coming." laughed out loud.
