Wow what a stinker
It's easy to say that "such and such is the worst movie I've ever seen." But sometimes you see a movie and realize that that phrase is the only thing you can say. For one thing, there's almost no action in this movie, which is fine if the movie isn't trying to be an action movie, but this movie seems like it wants to be; also, the action is pathetic, choppy, and too much shaky-cam (when are directors going to learn?). The movie opens in some near future terrible times, but what exactly is going on is never made clear. One character makes a passing reference to global warming but that can't explain the oppressive feeling about every environment in the film. But at every turn in the movie, the filmakers give no explanation to what is happening. What is that device? What does it do? Who is that person? What is their motivation? Why are they not telling me? Directors need to continually reflect on Hitchcock: when the audience knows what's going on, it makes the situation more exciting. Suddenly the movie ended and I didn't understand why or what had transpired or why one character had to die and what the-- was that the climax already? How weak! Basically, the movie is just one advertisement to read the book so that you can understand what you've just seen, because it does seem like there might be something interesting at the core of this story but when they were putting together the movie, they lost sight of what they were trying to do.
