    One of the worst movies ever. Avoid at all costs.

    Fairly decent actually. A very obvious "propaganda" piece but still enjoyable.

    That's such an american thing to say. I understand where you're coming from, but the movie was too ridiculous to be taken as social commentary.
    Metacritic is for losers :jj:
    Fairly decent :jj: Maybe the ukraine bootleg version is different
    No, went with a friend.

    Matt Damon has a 40,000 square foot home in Miami but he's an environmental activist

    I guess to make sure everyone else's carbon footprint is microscopic

    First thing I did when I came home just now was to go on IMDB and rate the movie a 3 out of 10, garypagetwo style :cool:

    Yep. Im starting to thing the director just got lucky with District 9 which was excellent.
    Anyone mention how over the top and comical Jodie Foster was? Worst acting of the century
