  • I took a lot of vicodin so i can`t say that my opinion is completely valid. However, it did NOT keep me awake.
  • Not bad - not the best but certainly not the worst movie we`ve seen lately.
  • Got ripped off on the cinema ticket (about $11 US), then the scramble suits and inappropriate animation did my head in! Very irritating. Would definitely have enjoyed it more if it was just without any cartoon effects. Winona`s smokin` hot though.
  • I have to wonder how much of the original story is missing. The screenplay did not do an effective job of bringing the story to this medium. I found the pacing slow, and there were a lot of disposable characters, as written. I was disappointed. I didn`t enjoy the cgi, but I think it contributed to the confusion and unreality intended. I wish I`d rented it, frankly.
  • awesome
  • I thought it was a good movie, but was a little put off with the way it was filmed, I didn`t like the animation, the story line was unique and the acting good.
  • Philip K. Dick, what a imagination this man has! It was a great movie, loved all the effects, and the overall anti-drugs message that cme ringing through lod and clear. Great movie, deserved more credit at the box office than it got.
  • It is great to see any P. k. Dick material put to film. It is always a challenge.
  • Very griping, a must see
  • This one was okay, but the story often seemed as confused as its drug-addled characters. And it hammered home the `drugs are bad` message so hard, it`s as though the film`s creators think we`re stupid. The actors are pretty good though - Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder all do a fine job - and while a lot of people think the interpolated rotoscoping thing is creepy, I really enjoy watching flicks using this technology.
