User Reviews: This film caught my eye because it had Laurence Fishburne. It’s shallow, I know, but I am also a sci-fan fan and that’s what sold it. The movie was a pleasant escape from reality, though at times, I was fiddling a bit in my chair. There were some long scenes of silence and eye candy, artistic nostalgic-type flashbacks. I enjoyed that the characters are young and the director is young, so the movie feels fresh. For the most part the plot is realistic, but some parts (won’t spoil it) weren’t. I followed the movie with interest, and was very impressed by the animation and graphics. The acting was good, included romance, action, a bit of humor, and of course, psychological thriller. Other sci-fi movies bend my mind leaving me dumbfounded, but this one was more entertainment, which is kind of a relief.
