I saw it...was a little disappointed b/c I usually love M. Night's movies, but it was still good. Just not great like I expected. You have to watch his movies numerous times to understand all of the plot twists and symbolism, don't just watch it once and say you hated it.

I saw it, I thought it was pretty good. Watch for the hidden political messages.

The dialogue got really annoying after a while though. It was almost laughable how they tried to recreate Ye Olde Way of Speak.

Damn straight!


Look I watched for the poltical symbolism, I understood it, it just wasn't interesting. It was stuff I already knew, presented in a way that was mind blowingly painful to watch.

Political message or not....and yes I caught it....but the ending of the movie...how anti-climatic can you get..... :-o

But I did like the fact that she was the only one they let go....because she was the only one that couldn't tell what she saw.... :-)

But I had that figured out very early in the movie....not one of his better movies.... :-/

Stop Irishdude, you're using logic

you can't use logic in this movie, just blindly accept all of the inconsistencies and incoherencies.
