    The film works best as a kind of mindless, action-packed B-movie. But on the A-level at which recent science fiction/fantasy films operate -- meaning the "Spider-Man," "Harry Potter" and "Terminator" series -- this movie falls woefully short. show more

    The perfect sci-fi movie for a post-9/11 world, in that it tells us we're afraid of threats hiding in plain sight. show more
