User Review

So so

Rating: 5/10


The Good:

Great eerie atmosphere throughout, although the movement made me feel
like I was watching CG from a video-game.

Not the biggest Val Kilmer fan, but he delivers a good performance.

Best scene: Hall attempting to write the first chapter of his new book.

The Bad:

A bizarre script which seems to bring its audience on a goose chase but
doesn't bring us to a satisfying conclusion.

I was expecting a 3d movie, however only 2 scenes are 3d, with glasses
appearing on the screen signifying the point at which you must put on
your 3d shades… 'it's time for your shades folks, the 3d bit is
coming up, now remove your shades, now put them on again!', you get it.

Atmosphere of the movie was enjoyable but the whole time I felt like I
wasn't really bothered what happened to any of the characters.

Bottom line: Wait for the DVD.
