This looks like it could be a great movie. But it sort of also has that M. Night Shyamalan feel. Which could go either way. Seems interesting:

I thought it was pretty good. Some funny parts, some thick irony, good acting, great action and gore. There were enough legitimate social comentary type overtones to make it stand out above most other sci-fi action type movies. 4 out of 5 stars or B+.

Definitely some unanswered questions, but it's totally set up for a sequel.

I don't see a lot of movies.

This was not a movie.

It was a giant cinematic for a video-game I couldn't play.

I enjoyed it for what it was. . .but thought it may have been the most overhyped movie of all-time.

I'll vouch for that, it was pretty overhyped, but it was enjoyable. Better than most movies nowadays, but that doesn't really say much.
