I thought I was in for a long, boring and idiotic film in the first hour or so. I thought the characters were extremely stupid. I am glad that it picked up... finally. The last half of the movie is great and had me freaked out. All in all- it was a good movie. I believe it is better on the big screen then renting the DVD when it comes out. Not a waste of money... if you can make it through the first half.
