I went with this cute black chick tonight who suprised me by pulling out a flask of tequila 5 mins into it...yeah!
Anyways, it is a very well done movie I have to say. The cinematogrpahy is excellent and there are a lot of nail biting moments that had me pretty much yelling "AAAA GO GO GO GO!!! AAAHHH!" which was okay because so was my date and the rest of theater.
That part where they have to jump start the car being one of them.
State sponsored suicide, war torn refugee camps, nazi/abu ghraib/homeland security overtones abound, real spooky "the end is near" vibe overall.
Clive Owens is my new favorite actor. The guy is amazing. Can;t wait to see him in Sin City 2
I really do not know how the fuck 1988 tried to draw a correlation between this and Kubricks films. Maybe a dash of Full Metal Jacket (the scary ass firefight in the refugee camp) but other than that......uh, i am drawing a blank.
So yes, go see this in the theater. A very very good movie which will feel worth having paid ten dollars for.
