Did You Know?
Dianna Agron landed her role after a chance meeting with executive producer Steven Spielberg at a charity event. Being a big fan of
Glee, Spielberg had been seriously considering Agron for a prominent part when the chance encounter proved beneficial for both parties.
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers):
Sarah uses old, mechanical cameras, such as Nikon F, yet never focuses before shooting.

Oh So Familiar
OK the effects were great, the action was impressive….I mean
visually, the movie was pretty good.
And I'll even say the acting was done well. The characters were
charming, the pace was slow at times, but not dead boring slow.
My only problem was, how many times are we going to see the exact same
story. I mean this was your typical teen drama….new kid..shady
past… weird and wants to stay to himself, but there's always some
cute chick who he risks everything for.
There's always bullies who hate that he's got the attention of the cute
chick, so they always end up having a conflict. I mean 90% of this
movie was your typical high school drama teen movie. And the
"discovering" of his powers was like the alien version of spiderman.
I mean it's the same ole same ole….you explore and try to harness
your new powers beating up bullies and jumping around where no one can
see you until a super strong villain pops up you have to fight in the
I mean as far as an overall success the positive things I mentioned
originally (great effects, charming characters, impressive action) can
for the most part salvage the movie. But if you're a fan of the genre,
don't expect anything new. 3 1/2 outta 5 stars…
