That said, the plot is truly atrocious (groan factor twelve), and the "science" is at cartoon level or worse. Now, I can forgive bad science in service of a good plot, and I can forgive a bad plot if the movie is otherwise fun and exciting, and doesn't take itself too seriously. Trouble is, somewhere in the second hour the film stopped being just a fun ride and started to want to make a Statement (but hadn't quite worked out about what). That's when I started shifting in my seat and thinking a nap might be nice.
Fortunately, what the film lacks in intelligence and plot, it makes up for by being short.
