    I agree, the trailer was just ok. I am holding out hope for this film because of Peter Jackson. Hopefully he can deleiver...

    This one seems pretty generic. The aliens look cool, but other than that- the set up and unfolding all seem like they've been done a million times (from the trailer at least).
    Looks like it'll fail pretty hard. I'll wait to see it on TV.

    Gloat, by fail pretty hard, do you mean suck? Or do you mean it will crash at ticket sales? Cause I think its going to kill at ticket sales.

    Just got back from seeing it, exceeded my expectations 10 fold, and this was the first movie in a while I'd been hyped to go and see. The story was fantastic and not something you could see from a mile away. The action was awesome, and downright hilarious at times. The guy playing Vickus was great, such a great character. Obviously going to be a District 10, and I can't wait for it!

    The ONLY downside was the excessive use of the F bomb, but since it was done by a guy with an accent, it wasn't too bad :)

    Automatically in one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time, was that good.

    10/10 woot :D

    I too just got back and was totally shocked. Gloat, I dont think you will see this one coming.

    I am glad I didnt take my son, it is pretty gory. There were a few things left unanswered, but that is to be expected.

    I thought it was a pretty good flick. 8.5/10

    By fail hard I meant it probably wouldn't be good. But by these last 2 posts, maybe I'm wrong and there is something special to see?

    If the good reviews keep up, I'll put some money toward giving it a chance.
