Rotten: A load of outer space codswallop!

I didn't go as bonkers for it as a lot of people I know, and there is better sci-fi, but it was pretty good.

No, it's not the best movie ever, but it's a near perfect popcorn movie. One of the few times that Roland Emmerich didn't try to become too self important. Kurt Russell and James Spader were great together and really made the movie enjoyable. The plot was also really well done and brought something new to the sci-fi genre. The conspiracy theory aspect in this worked (unlike Emmerich's other films) because it wasn't trying to be taken seriously, it's just pure sci-fi adventure. The effects were great for the look they were going for (very similar to Dune).
