A movie of extreme. Intense and underdeveloped. The concepts are there only you hafta think up/of the box to have dimensional balance. Big picture good in the end. Wasn't disappointed, wasn't blown away. Spanglesh it's the new Universal language get your Rosetta Stone before 2154.

I'm not quoting anybody. I mean to say that this movie shows how the ultra-ultra rich and powerful would love society to be: they'd be in some exotic place with the best luxuries and we'd be struggling to live and survive under robot or half human / half robot authorities. 'Welcome to the New World Order' is supposed to mean 'Take a look at the Utopia they're planning for us.'

Great special effects, but the rest of this movie needed a lot of work. The story doesn't make any sense, and every time Jodie Foster was on screen she was overacting.

I was expecting a little more from this movie. The special effects\CGI were well done but other than that the movie was pretty lame. Jodie Foster’s accent is awful and annoying and so is the main villain’s. Story line is basic with lots of holes in it and Matt Damon looks terrible with a shaved head. Don’t expect much and you may enjoy this movie.

Gratuitous violence; unique story line; I didn't like Jodie Foster's accent - and her acting could have been better. The extra's on the DVD were more interesting than the movie.

The story had good potential, but was ruined by the Hollywood cliche. Even the special effects looked cheap towards the end. If you expect it to be a continuation of District 9 like me, then you are bound to be disappointed.

Very good sci-fi action movie. Dystopian future setting is done well. Effects are cool. The violence is gory and similar to District 9 (guns tend to rip people to shreds, people sort of pop and splatter). The action, setting and effects are the draw here. The acting and plotline are ok, but nothing special.

Coarse Language: I think it'd be a good idea for the actors to wash their mouths with really strong soap.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The whole movie is very intense and probably frightening for kids to watch. Heck, I'm 19 and it was a lot for me.

Violence: Much like District 9, this movie is extremely heavy in the violence department. Although all the action is very well done and the effects are fantastic. This guy knows how to make a serious action movie.

Coarse Language: Probably well over 100 f words and many other smaller swears. It's rated R for a reason.
