Pretty standard sci-fi storyline (big brother state, underground rebellion) but original enough that it wasn’t a parody or pastiche of the genre. However some nicely choreographed fight scenes do not a great film make. The storyline is a bit thin, and for an action movie there is a slow middle section. Not a bad film and certainly not the worst 90 minutes I’ve spent in the cinema.
For the record I have been told to inform you that Louise loved it (probably something to do with the cute puppy?).
Christian Bale plays the lead well, but is never really called upon to do much more than deliver some cliched lines and look moody. Probably one to catch on TV (late night no doubt).
