This was surprising and frustrating at the same time.

Surprising because what looked to be an action movie with minor sci-fi elements (in that the protagonist gets a chip installed into his broken spine to help him move again) in the trailer turned out to be a futuristic, cyber-punk movie with body-horror elements similar to early Cronenberg.

Frustrating because it was hampered by cheesy dialogue and massive plotholes and absurdities which could easily been patched by spending just a little more time on the script.

There was some great camera work in here and brutal action scenes; which unfortunately the trailer gave away.

Still. I would keep an eye on this director.

I'm not a horror fan but this was so highly recommended I watched it last night. Amazing film (in Korean with subtitles). The Train to Busan. (I had nightmares...)

Passengers, I like the big ideas behind the film. It will disappoint the nihilist in you. Like I said it's the ideas that are interesting. I'd like to see it remade in a darker fashion.

Want to see Nicholas Cage lose his shit in a bad trip of psychedelic rage in a movie which evokes Mad Max, Hellraiser, and Heavy Metal, against a Christian death cult viewed through a glass of Tequila Sunrise?

Of course you do.

Never go to the flicks anymore. The sound and smell of popcorn; disgusting. Why is the sound so loud?
