For a second there I was all excited because I misread the thread title and thought it said Repo MAN! /img/vbsmilies/htf/frown.gif

This was one of those high concept flicks that didn't realize its full potential. Still, I'm a sucker for high-concept futuristic movies (and it wasn't terrible) so I'll pick it up. Wasn't the chick in this film also in I Am Legend and Blindness? It seems these kinds of movies is all she does
