Too bad. The first half of the trailer looked interesting. With all the numbers and shit. Little bit of National Treasure with a mix of DaVinci Code and Beautiful Mind. Then the next half gets ugly. Aliens or time travelers come outta nowhere?!

I dunno, I'll probably watch it just for the first half and hopes the second half won't be a snore.

6/10 for its effort.

I hate everyone I know always relying on rotton tomatoes for reviews of movies. Everyone has different tastes and some like movies that others don't.

lord of war is a great movie, but it was the story the way it was presented. it would have been an excellent movie is someone other htan nick cage was in it.

I think he's a hit and miss actor. Some of the movie he does are good well others are total crap. I liked Matchstick Men, 8mm, Gone in 60 Seconds, Leaving Las Vegas and Kiss of Death as well.

It's easy to forget that he won an Oscar for Best Actor before, thats a fairly elite club.

Is Nicholas Cage a Scientologist??


The movie looked somewhat promising, because there was these disturbing scenes of disaster.


Then i was like.....wtf?

I swear....this movie was written and produced by Scientologists.

I found it alright.

I knew the ending was gonna be a fuckup one way or the other when I saw the trailer,
but I went in for the CG's and for Nicholas Cage, who I personally love as an actor.

I did find that, the suspense and thrill did not go hand in hand, which was somewhat of a bother to watch.
