    Saw it today with my daughter. Great sci-fi movie set in a dystopian future.

    For all his plagiarism, Cameron produces quality entertainment.

    The way it ended I expect it is a planned trilogy. I look forward to what follows

    There are VERY FEW movies I watch more than once at release. This is one of them.

    "Fuck your mercy!"

    Best line of the movie and one to rival the best one liners. Doesn't top "Get away from her you bitch!" tho

    Just finished watching it. It was entertaining to be sure. A bit to manga for Me, but I'll definitely watch the sequel.

    It lasted one week in theaters around here, always a sure sign of potential high quality. It's on my list.

    ??? That seems like a rather short/failed run to me?

    Indeed. Consider the crap that people line up to see.

    There's no accounting for taste. Blade Runner was considered crap by many when released. Now it's rightfully accepted as classic genius.

    Trust no critic.
