Oddly enough, after I watched this movie a couple of times I was inspired to write a short story called "Inertia," which later ended up in my book. What inspired me was the scene in which Horus selected a human host, in this case the German criminal dude, who was on the verge of death. The words uttered by the character as he ventured toward oblivion were so moving, and perhaps made it the best scene in the film I certainly think so. The film is out there and the animation is simliar to what the company has done in other films. Outside of strange, the story is something of a farce, suspenseful, and deliberately inseparable from mysticism and the hierarchy of God and humanity. If you liked "12 Monkeys," "Stargate," and "Bladerunner" you'll think the film is worth a rent.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Let me explain my title.First of all I really liked this movie,but not enough to give it five stars.Just because it most certainly wasn't perfect.I mean some reviewers at cdnow gave it one star.So obviously some people didn't get it,but I did.Atleast I think I did?Anyway's what I meant by groundbreaking was that this movie is totally not what you'd expect from the cover.I mean just by looking at the cover,you'd think that it's a Epic storyline that's deep,with twists,and alot of action,and the whole good vs. evil thing.With the girl as the main character.But that's not how it was,and that's why I think this movies groundbreaking,because it's not what you'd expect,and that's like a breath of fresh air to me,but still some people give it like one star,because they felt so let down by that.Anyway's I kind of don't agree soley with the first review regarding the hole description of this movie as being complicated.I think that the core storyline was so strait forward,and plain that it made some people mad,mainly the ones expecting twists,or something deep.Let me tell you there's no twist's,and no epic stuff like good versus evil.It's very straight forward as if the director decided I'm gonna make a big budget movie,yet I'm gonna make it completely average,but still kinda cool,and interesting,and to me that takes some guts.It wasn't hard to guess that he's a french director,because this movie goes totally against the grain of what's expected in america.It kind of reminds me of Jeane Pierre Jeunets stylistic masterpiece City of lost children,and has about as many fans in america as that movie.Any way's to prove how simple the core storyline is I'll describe it in about a sentence.A egyption god get's five day's on earth before he get's sentence to death,and he spend's that time looking for a certain blue haired girl (Jill)who unKnowingly has the ability to give birth to god's,so the god possesses Nicopole to do,that's right you guessed it her,and like I said there's no twists so you can just guess how it all turned out.All the complex stuff was not hard to understand after the second or third time watching it.It's all just unimportant jargen just to spice up the otherwise extremely average storyline.Although I still don't get why she didn't die after she took the red pill to make her completely human in the very center of Intruziun.You'll have to watch the movie to get what I'm talking about.So give it a try by yourself before springing it on you'r friends.Because like I said it's not for everyone,and it is pretty weird most of the time,but I guess all true sci-fi's weird now isn't it?Was this review helpful?

This film, which is an odd combination of the Fifth Element and the Mummy, takes a bit of getting used to. Most of the characters are rendered in CGI, which gives the film a very, artsy feel. At first I wasn’t sure I liked the film, but the film managed to pull me in., despite the fact the story is winding and not at all easy to understand, and the plot jumps more than a hyper frog, something about this film is very captivating. The film is roughly about an escaped convict, a rogue Egyptian deity, and a woman with no past and an unknown future named Jill. Somewhere included is corporate greed, police that have been horribly deformed, twisting monsters, genetics tests, and flying cars. It makes for a very odd jumble. And if you’re one who likes plot threads resolved, this isn’t your movie. Most of the minor plot threads are left dangling, but the film captivates you so much you’ll have a hard time caring. Highly recommended for sci-fi fans.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
