The day the Earth stood still

NE1 seen this yet? I hear it is not too good, but the previews look sorta intersting. Thinking of seeing it since I will have 2 weeks off work.

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

My friend said it was a almost a drama with a few actions scenes sprinkled in. He did say there was a bad ass preview of a doomsday movie.

They picked the perfect actor to play an emotionless alien. Wasn't bad, but wasn't great either.

I want to see it as well knowing full well it's not an action movie. Special effects looking pretty good and Keanu's "acting" shouldn't take anything away from the movie Might catch it Friday at the IMAX.

I thought it wasn't too bad, up until the end. The end was pretty much a letdown. It was like 'that's it?'

True story. Keanu was good in The Matrix, and this movie...but that's about it. He's probably worse than Paul Walker.

I thought that the movie was just OK.

Took the whole family to see it, honestly wish i had waited for it to go to dvd. Not a horrible movie, but not good enough to buy either. If I even remotely like a movie, i buy them for the rack. I wont be buying this one.
