It's getting pretty mixed reviews, it sounds like.

Me? I was torn about seeing it. On the one hand, I kind of want to boycott the annoying asshatery of Tom Cruise. On the other hand?

Aliens blowing shit up.



It's the same reason I love the first half of the otherwise dumb "Independence Day" - aliens blowing shit up!

So yeah, I'll probably go.

First hour and a half was some of the most harrowing and nerve-racking cinema I've seen in a long time.

The rest? Some of the most laughable.

I'm honestly not sure. A relative told me this.

A reviewer in one of the papers around here said people were laughing towards the end.

As the only big movie released over the holiday weekend, it'll rack up huge numbers from Wed till Monday.
I suspect it will suffer a huge dropoff in weekend 2 under a Fantatsic 4 avalanche.

the first 90 minutes was pretty riveting

the effects are some of the best I have ever seen

Cruise does his typical, creditable, action acting

Dakota Fanning is great

The last half hour was not laughable to me,
it just faded fast and did not close as strong as the first 90 minutes.

Are you referring to Mr. Cruise or the petition?

-We do not want to watch his ‘out of control’ yet suspiciously manipulative antics nor listen to his condescending, holier-than-thou judgments. This man cannot even articulate a coherent sentence. He should stick to reading movie scripts.

It is revealing that the most compelling character Tom Cruise has ever portrayed is “Frank TJ Mackay” from Magnolia, a control-freak with a pathological need to assert his obsession over not just those around him, but the public as well, by exploiting his access to public media. Apparently Mr. Cruise was playing himself.
