In a perverse kind of way, because I went into it with absolutely rock-bottom expectations, I found it kinda entertaining. I feel like splitting it into two ditinct camps of good and bad. Here goes. PROS -Even though the special effects weren't great, they did create an atmosphere that was conducive to the specific vision of they future they were trying to create. -Barry Pepper did an astonishing amount of running, which while not explicitly a good thing, certainly ain't all that bad! -Forrest Whitaker was the only Psychlo who didn't totally suck. -Johnny T's name was Terl, which sounds a lot like 'Terrell', a member here at this forum. So whenever he came on screen, I was totally distracted from his craptastic dialogue by the expectation that he would spontaneously come up with a list of reasons why Episode 1 didn't suck! It really enhanced the film actually. Let's face it, it would have made more sense in context than a lot of the garbage he was droning on about: "check the compo gradients." -Also, Kelly Preston was OK, UNTIL she stuck out her tongue. CONS -everything not listed above -It was absurdly long, and yet still less than 2 hours. -The story is ludicrous beyond belief - humans only managed to put up a 9 minute fight to begin with, but the minute they've devolved into cavemen, they manage to blow up the home planet, and rid earth of the aliens! Give me a break. -Some of the dialogue was so awful, it made me want to stick red hot needles in my eyeballs, just so that I'd have something different to think about. -(insert whatever gripe you like in here and probability is 99% that it'll be spot on.) Interesting viewing for sure.
