The bullet holes in Spencer's ESA jacket move around.
There wasn't always a war with the Centauri, but in my lifetime it's all I've ever known. By the year 2050, six years after the first attack, we'd lost so many things. We'd lost the sky to electromagnetic domes, to shield the Earth from frequent air raids increasing in intensity…
Philip K. Dick would like this movie
This movie has gotten a bad rap mostly from folks who just didn't get it. Of
all the movies based on Philip K Dick stories, this one actually is most
true to the plot line. And as a fan of Philip K Dick I give this movie a
lot of credit for that. He visualizes a dark, grim future world at war with
aliens and the fear and confusion that comes from the impostor accusations.
The movie reflects that very well. They did add some material just to make
it a full length feature flick, since the original literary work is a short
story. Sinise is excellent, Stowe is pretty and sensual as usual and
D'Onofrio is over the top , as usual. A good cast, good photography and an
interesting set design. I give the movie high marks, and recommend it
especially to any fans of Philip K Dick.
