The plot was awesome, the suspense was intense, the acting was flawless, but what sets this film apart from others is that this movie has, without a doubt, the BEST cinematography i've ever seen. If it doesnt win at least the Oscar for cinematography this year, they'd be robbed.

Nearly all the edge-of-seat suspensful scenes (and this movie has a lot of them) are shot in one conti... read more

This movie stunned me. It bombed at the box office, it got snubbed at the Oscars, and yet just sheer word-of-mouth has put this film in IMDB's Top250.

Without a doubt, this is easily my favorite film of 2006, heck, of the decade. Go see it people!

Alfonso Cuaron shows us in this film that he is the master of long takes, and few cuts. Brilliantly cinematographed and directed, with a most excellent cast, this is a wonderful film. The bonus feature is something I rarely watch, but everyone will be curious to watch the production of one particular scene involving Kee's character, played by new actress Claire-Hope Ashitey. This is definitely THE... read more

Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

"" immediately announced itself as the most best and bleakest sci-fi movie of the 21st Century. It has also proven to be the most prescient, anticipating a time when Britain has closed its borders, hateful isolationism has taken root, and xenophobia spores out of walled garden across the world." - David Ehrlich"

"Jan 4th Thought it was a good Sci Fi flick but nothing that really blow me away. The cinematography and dystopia setting was good along with the action scenes and parallels to contemporary society as it relates to immigration. Overall rating 6.3. "
