A very powerful movie with a hidden message. We better be on the alert.
giVe me a break with all the "political messages" and "people just don`t get it". If I want to think I will watch CNN, I go to the theatre to be entertained, not bored to death. This movie sucked.
A Veritable Vision of actiVity which I want to see again, and again, and again...
V- very good movie to fall asleep. My friend thanks me for not waking him up after 90 mins.
This is a powerful movie, in that it makes the viewer reason within themselves the course of current events. The question of Liberty and Reason. vs. Tyranny and Conformity. It reminds me of the type of scenario that Rod Sterling`s Outer Limits would project. And yet considering the age and events we find ourselves, it is worth seeing.
to the guy down there: i very much doubt your action sequences in your backyard could match something they do with their eyes closed. to the other dude: it was written by the wachowski brothers (matrix) but not directed by them. Get your facts first. To some person: Yeah, trailer was a bit misleading but when it did have action, it delivered. I say this movie was sophisticated. Why? Simply because the story and message and acting of this film was great. Action seemed to be used just to accent some points in the plot. Now for some insults back: it`s a shame those who didn`t like it couldn`t understand the film. Good thing tribut
the only reason why people did not love this movie is simple...it was beyond 90% of the people who watched it. a mirror image of real problems in today`s government.
Wow! Did I see what I think I saw?? Did I actually see a movie with actual dialogue and an actual point?? Wow, finally, it was nice seeing a movie that had intelligence to it and wasn`t dumbed down for the masses. I was actually expecting a dumbed-down all-out action movie and what I got instead was an intelligent political satire. I don`t believe it!! I`ve never read the graphic novel, and I`m sure the satire is more scathing in it, but I won`t complain, because this movie is a step in the right direction for mainstream Hollywood after countless forgettable "blockbusters" Bring on more like this!
Don`t go for Matrix style/amount of action. This is a thinking persons movie, someone that is`nt dependant on special f/x. Pretty strong message here, don`t let it pass you by. It was great to hear the old Benny Hill theme again! Just remember, absolute power corupts absolute. And I don`t wnt to see this mask at hallo`ween.
Some of the comments so far indicate that a few people just don`t get it.The "Tail realy does Wag the Dog" (look it up).The message is not new.The fact that today`s political issues have similar parallels with this movie is not a coincidence,though it was written in the 80s.The story line draws heavily on the darker side of 20th century history. If the trailer misleads,so be it,but maybe the under 20s might just have to think while being entertained.If you didn`t learn anything from this film,then you weren`t listening.Certainly other films mentioned have delivered similar perspectives. This film also delivers, but in it`s own style, till th
