  1. Digs up both laughs and chills from timeworn material.
  2. A pretty good job of zipping things along and occasionally scaring us, and the digital effects are fun.
  3. There is much to look at--it's like spending two hours in Michael Jackson's Undead Neverland--but not a lot at stake.

    Seems to be going through a series of motions so obviously virtual that it makes you wish that the filmmakers had stayed away from the computer keyboards entirely and stuck with the rotting tape look.
  5. Long, bombastic, and violent, but fantasy fans may enjoy its fast-moving energy.
  6. Numbingly predictable and repetitive non-stop action.

    Hopelessly overwrought and deeply dopey movie.

Don't go into this film expecting a great story that will cause you to think of life in a different way; watch it for the impossible adventure, witty dialogue, and just dumb fun. Expand
