Its not an action shoot em up film..so if someone is expecting that he will be disappointed.
Its more of a thriller/detective story.

I haven't seen much on it, but I think I would like it. I'll probably catch it when it goes out on DVD.

From what I hear "mindfuck movie" is a bit of an understatement for this one. The plot somewhat centers around making the viewer go crazy.

Dark City(1998)
This movie flew under the radars and got very little attention but its a nice sci-fi movie.

loved that movie, i've seen it at least 5 times... why can't we get more movies like this? quite unpredictable; i love the way the plot progresses deeper and deeper into weirdness. the setting is also pretty cool, very noire.

at risk of giving away a bit; im really glad he gets his revenge on those creepy black-wearing dudes; that kid needs a kick in the face from the moment he steps onto the screen.
