  1. It's scary. It's well-acted. It's filmed with a degree of flash and elegance.
  2. A moderately diverting thriller that builds suspense and entertains effectively... strongest selling point is Charlize Theron.

    Aggressively stylish but dramatically flaccid.
  4. Could have been written by a computer programmed to cannibalize previous sci-fi films.

    This hypersleek film is surprisingly lax for its first half... The ending is dumb.

    One of the least endurable films of 1999.

    Without question, the worst film I have ever seen. I viewed this at a dollar theatre and nearly requested a refund. The same 15 minute scene Without question, the worst film I have ever seen. I viewed this at a dollar theatre and nearly requested a refund. The same 15 minute scene appears to be rehashed with a few minor changes in dialogue six times, followed by an inexplicable ending that, despite being heavily telegraphed throughout the film, is far too obtuse to be taken seriously. An absolute waste of a proven cast. Expand
