    Not me. I guess I set my hopes too high for it… I was a bit disappointed, but Micheal Cain's performance was gold. Maybe the fact that I was on a date and the girl didn't leave me alone during most of the movie could have something to do with my general appreciation of the film. I might have to see it again.

    Interesting, but I doubt I would ever watch it again.

    I found it to be an excellent film that deals very well with the issues that the UK could very well end up having, as well as global issues. I guess that it just resonates more for Brits...

    I really loved the film, especially the long ass single shot takes, particularly the one near the end, totally brilliant. A 6 minute take that covers that much ground...it's really impressive. They did use some CGI to aid it along though. Directing aside, I enjoyed the story and acting as well.

    Fantastic film. Excellent performances from Clive owen and Michael Caine (no surprise there) and a very involving storyline, which was a surprise, considering it's based on a P.D. James novel.

    kukuku...

    Haven't seen the film, but why is it that Britain is going so post-apocolyptic on us i.e. this movie and V or Vendetta?

    Well, in this film Britain was actually in better shape than most of the rest of the world.

    In CoM, Britain is actually doing well, compared to the rest of the planet, and there's nothing post apocalyptic about V for vendetta. it's about a fascist takeover of the british government, and again, britain is actually doing much better than most other nations on the planet, they simply have no personal freedoms, and therein lies the problem.
