First and foremost the movie is pure entertainment, nowhere did I state it is a reflection of reality. I have no idea why others watch movies (I like
entertainment, escapism if you will, from the humdrum of life) but if you expected some life-changing secret, revelations as to the nature of the
universe or a deep philosophical insight into the state of our existence then obviously, with a plot like this you will be sorely disappointed.
As for dialogue, well, I think the above might apply just as equally. Are they going to wax lyrical, discuss metaphysics or invent a time machine? No.
It's set slightly in the future but does show a little of what is already happening now, Robot Wars.
If you wanted a different kind of experience than just a little well-made fun then obviously this movie is not for you. There are many others that
would fulfill that role. As for the argument that Hollywood is only producing junk, that is incorrect imho but then I loved (and love the genre too)
of movies like King Kong, The Hulk, X Men, Spiderman, Superman, The Watchmen, LOTR, Avatar....among many other movies and genres. I find it easy to
get into (good) movies regardless of genre but I guess others don't. I tend to drink a couple of beers (in no way drunk or anywhere near that state)
and go with the flow of it all rather than watching it critically for every little flaw, inconsistency or things that "are not true". At worst it
might be described as a bit of a guys film but that is about it I think.
Damn, tough crowd in here tonight.

Well, I'm glad someone enjoyed it!
Maybe I'm really just a big kid at heart but it seemed to have a good mix of things in it. I've never seen
Lost so only vaguely recognised the actress but she did her part well enough I thought.
