    I just watched it the other night. It was enjoyable, but nothing mind blowing. Then again, I'll stare at monkeys flinging poo on each other so long as Mila Kunis is in the background somewhere.

    I find this movie to be total crap [​IMG]

    Probably one of the worst post-apocalyptic movies I've ever watched.
    Mad Max shreds this movie to pieces, even Waterworld was a masterpiece compared to this one.

    EDIT: Just to clarify, I LOVE post-apocalyptic movies, I really had high hopes for this one, but it was a huge let-down, and what's with the ending.....could they made it more cheesy and trashy?!

    I saw it on a SCR copy before the retail, so quality wasn't terrific (it wasn't a DVDSCR, just standard SCR).

    I thought it was a good movie but had a terrible ending. I also wish they gave us a little more background on the world and what not, although I guess that the whole mystery behind it is what makes the movie more compelling. But overall it was a very pleasing movie.

    This was the best end of the world movie ever. I have loved Dawn of the Dead since I was four years old and this movie took its place as my fav.The movie is about faith. The ending was amazing!

    Predictable from the get-go. Some cool fight scenes.....

    But honestly, who didn't guess he was protecting the bible when the trailers started on tv?

    I was hoping I'd be wrong.....

    The movie was cliche and derivative with a terribly unexciting and hackneyed plot.

    Like the bible ever changed anything for the better....PFFT.....

    honestly, i wasnt predicting that, cause seriously, i saw a bunch of action in it, i didnt think they would really make it religious at all, it caught me by surprise, in a very bad way

    I believe a random IMDB comment I saw summed it up- "finally an action film the pope can enjoy".

    On paper it had quite a lot going for it- post apocalypse, some half decent action scenes, Tom Waits (he was the engineer in the settlement) but after a promising start it ended up being some half baked religious nonsense.

    On the other hand in what will probably get me kicked out of film commentary club I did enjoy it more than "The Road".

    Great movie it was way better than The Road. The Road's story could have been told in 10 minutes instead they dragged out scenes about nothing and turned it into a pure snorefest.
