    Question.
    Have you seen any of the stuff this is based on?
    Ghost in the Shell
    Blade Runner
    Asimov's Robot
    etc.

    The reason i ask is because i really really really wanted to be able to give this movie an 8 or 9 of 10 as the subject matter is my weakness. Its something ive been addicted to and loved ever since i can remember.
    And im not saying it was a bad movie, but for me it just took wwwaayyyy too much from all these other great works. It was to the point where the term "homage" lost all meaning and was replaced with "copy and paste".

    I Am Number 4 -

    This is decent and predictable action scifi. It's your standard run of the mill fugitive alien hiding out on Terra Firma with bad guys in pursuit.
    The action level cranks up in the second half though, and ends with a strong finish.

    Black Angel - 1980 short film, originally shown before The Empire Strikes Back in some places, then lost for a time until it was discovered recently. Really awesome atmospheric 80s medieval fantasy (filmed in Scottish Highlands)
