I went in, expecting not to take this movie too seriously and I came out pleasantly entertained. Some of the best parts were Jason Statham's character raiding a convenience store for Red Bull, and ordering a nurse at gunpoint to shock him with defib paddles. Notwithstanding the part where his girlfriend comes in. The movie's slower parts dragged a bit (but this is necessary, since you're scooped up and dragged away as soon as it starts), but the action sequences are worth it. Awesome movie, except the ending left me a little flat.

Casually calling your girlfriend on a cellphone while free-falling 10 000 feet? Right... And what was with that blink he did before fading out? Is he really dead?
I really liked the way this film was shot. I thought it was a inventive way to have the audience along for the ride. The stop-motion, the occasional sub-title... I was very surprised how much I liked it... And really, I only went to stare at Jason Statham, so it was a pleasant surprise to actually like the movie.
As I mentioned in "The Day of the Doctor" thread last month, that was the first-ever episode of DW I ever watched. Since then, I have completely geeked out over this show, and I've watched the entire Series 1 (with Eccleston)
