By now, I have seen almost all the movies directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and even though most of them were rather entertaining, to be honest, none of them actually managed to really impress me. This movie was however an exception. Indeed, I kept hearing some interesting things about it so I was quite eager to check it out and, eventually, I thought it was actually pretty good. First of all, the production design was pretty decent and I really enjoyed the spooky mood. All the actors involved gave some convincing performances, especially Laurence Fishburne and Sam Neil. Eventually, what I enjoyed the most about this movie was probably the fact I really did underestimate the damned thing. Indeed, it turned out to be actually much more gory than I expected, especially during the last 20 minutes. To be honest, the whole situation was actually rather pricelles. Basically, I was watching this movie with my step-son who was about 13 years old and, for most of the duration, it was a rather standard SF thriller but, suddenly, it became some weird SM show and just when it started, my wife came in the living-room. Seriously, she really didn’t like the fact I was watching something so hardcore with her dear son. Well, in fact, I thought that those rather schocking scenes were actually pretty awesome. Anyway, to conclude, even though it was not a masterpiece whatsoever, it remains a well-made and entertaining SF flick and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
