So then I've waiting for ages for this movie - I think it was here i first heard of this movie when it was first mentioned, so take that time + what it took for the UK release. So after that wait, was it worth it. HELL YEAH. So its not life changing (its a summer movie - but its not that mindless), sure its head and shoulders above everything else i've seen lately. It might not be up there with the 'classics' of sci fi right now but I think in time I'm sure it will become revered in its own right and people stop arguing about South Africa and apartheid and except its about cross cultural integration what ever the place, time, race and/or ethnicity is. But is anyone else getting a sense of deja vu to after the first matrix movie and before the second. Coz at i'm feeling i want more but my experiences make me wary what ever comes next will only disappoint me. Another side point, the effects/budgest, I think it just shows that if your doing a heavy effects laidened movie, get someone with the expereance with wielding such things instead of hiring it out to some second team of experts, coz looking at what is in other movies and what they get for 2/3 times the money and don't look this good - coz they are robbing your budget I fear.
