I had heard of the wave before seeing the movie, and although I liked the concept, I did not really know what to expect. I was right on the money. The movie has an interesting premise, but nothing really happened until the end. The characters had been developed well, and the story really held my interest until the end. The acting was great, and the music was amazing. If you enjoy sci-fi, this is a must see. It is also a great introduction to a group of actors, that I will be watching for a long time.

I recently read the novel "The Wave" by John Wyndham, and was shocked by how it seemed to resemble the movie. It was the same thing; the sea being a human body, and the nuclear fallout causing the transformation of the sea into the living body of a man. The sea was a human body with a warhead inside, and the nuclear fallout was the turning point that turned it into the human form. (Wyndham said that he was making the story into a play, so this is not so different from the book). This movie, although lacking in the details, is very interesting and fascinating to watch. I was just reading through a book review on Amazon when I came across this movie and decided to buy it, and I am glad I did. It is well-acted, and the special effects are very good. It's a very interesting movie. I hope it becomes a bestseller because it is very interesting. I can't wait for the sequel to come out. My vote is eight out of ten stars.

This is one of the best sci-fi movies I've ever seen. The movie keeps you guessing throughout the whole movie. It's a movie that you must watch with your friends. It will make you feel like you were there in the day when a wave destroyed the world. The film starts off with a small town in Hawaii. The two young men, who didn't seem to want to be in the town they were in, decide to go to Hawaii to have fun. The first thing they see on the beach is the giant wave. They decide to go to the island to try to get some information about the wave. They find out that there are something in the ocean that is destroying the world and they are in the best position to stop it. The first scene is when the crew is learning about the wave and a strange entity is running around in the ocean. The next scene is when the crew is going to try and make it to the island. They go into the water and find that the wave is going to kill everyone in the ocean. They decide to stay on the island and try to find out more about the wave. They go to the ocean, but after a few hours the wave is still going. The crew decides to take the chance to go to the island to find out more about the wave. This movie is very very good. It's not a movie that you would watch for the special effects, but it's a movie that you must watch for the plot.

A mysterious wave is threatening to wreck havoc on the world and is in the possession of a very powerful alien race. There is no hope for humanity other than to save themselves and discover the truth of this alien race's intentions. I am a huge fan of the Stanley Kubrik novel "Dune" and I was definitely looking forward to this movie because of its similarity to the book. However, I must admit that it was more of a "believable" movie and I didn't like the plot at all. I was really disappointed and was a bit confused during the movie. The movie really is a waste of time and you really have to think about it and it really isn't worth it. There was no point of the movie at all and I was disappointed. In my opinion, it was just a big mess and I would not recommend this movie to anyone.

This movie was completely different than the first movie, and that is what I love about it. I am not a big sci-fi fan, but I am a fan of pure thrill, and I was all into this movie. I love the fact that the movie was very clear on what the aliens were and where they came from. The acting was really good, especially from Sharlto Copley. He was really convincing. I would recommend this movie to anyone that likes action movies, or a good sci-fi movie. It is a must-see movie, and I am glad that I watched it.

I went into this film not expecting much. The reviews I read seemed to suggest a less than stellar film, but that was not the case. I have to admit I went into the film with a little more scepticism than I would have on any other film. As I watched the film I came to realise that this is a film I would enjoy, but would not have ever thought I would enjoy. It is a film I would watch again, but would not find myself caring for or wanting to watch the next film in the series. I will say that I did like this film, it did take me by surprise and I enjoyed it immensely. As with all films it is not a film for everyone, but if you like an escapist film to watch with friends and enjoy yourself then it will do that for you. I would recommend this film to anyone looking for a film to watch with a friend, it is a good one to watch with a group of friends and have some fun. I give this film an 8 out of 10, but do watch it, if you are looking for a film to watch and have some fun, I recommend this film.

This film takes place in the future. A company has been trying to create a human-like being, but they couldn't succeed due to a cataclysmic event. Now a police officer is sent to investigate, and he soon meets a scientist, who is also in on the project. In order to escape the destruction of the world, they need a human-like being to be able to make their project complete. So they call on a researcher to come and see what it would be like. Now the human-like being is not a complete person, but a hybrid of a human and an animal. The problem is that the hybrid doesn't feel human at all. Now the researcher is going to try and talk to the hybrid and find out what it is, but his efforts are blocked by the Hybrid. Now the Hybrid is going to try and kill the researcher, and the Hybrid will be in the possession of the police officer. This is a great film. The film is in a similar vein to a few other films in the genre. It also has some flaws, but it still works. If you like action films, this is a film for you. If you like Sci-Fi, this is a film for you. I think that people who dislike the film are missing the point of the film. It is a great film, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I have been waiting a while for this movie to come out. I watched the trailer on Hulu and it looked interesting. I actually ended up buying the movie the day it came out and was blown away by it. The movie begins with a story of a young boy's grandfather who accidentally gets his parents into the ocean, and has to figure out a way to get them back. The movie is very fast-paced and I didn't really have any time to catch up with the story. The acting was fantastic and really drew you into the story. I really liked the acting of Jake Johnson as the son, and also the acting of Elle Fanning and Ryan Gosling as the two main characters. I have to admit that Elle Fanning was a little annoying at first but her acting improved as the movie went on. I found the romance of the movie really good. The music was also really good. I really liked the movie and recommend it to anyone who loves sci-fi movies. It was very well done and I'm glad that the movie did well at the box office. The special effects were also really good. I give this movie a 9/10. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who likes sci-fi movies.

After seeing the trailer, i was really excited about this movie. The idea of the film was intriguing, and i'm happy to say that the film was an excellent piece of work. It's a really good story, and the characters are very believable. The action scenes are great, and they're very well done, and are shot very well. I really enjoyed this film, and if you're a fan of the genre, then you'll definitely enjoy it as well. It's really well made, and the acting was really good. I really can't say much about this film, except that it was very entertaining. It was interesting and suspenseful, and it was very well done. I really enjoyed this film, and would highly recommend it to anyone who likes thrillers and has any interest in science fiction, and the idea of the wave. I gave this film 8/10, and i would really recommend it to anyone. It's very good and worth watching. If you like science fiction films and/or want to watch a really good film, then this is the film for you.

I thought the movie was very well made, and I thought the actors were great. I can't say that the special effects were great, but I thought they were well done. I would say if you like a good science fiction movie, go see it.

As with any other sci-fi/action film, there's a lot of exposition and explanation needed before the film can begin, and in this film, the exposition is sparse, but a lot of the film is filled with strange and unexplainable occurrences. What is so unusual about these occurrences is that they're never explained, but simply assumed to be part of the film. I can only think of one film, which has ever made this problem a lot worse. I can't believe that this film is this bad. I can only think of one movie in which the explanation is more consistent, and that's "I, Robot."

The movie takes you back in time where people were like us, and they were like us in the future. It is a movie about time travel, and what happens when two of the future descendants go back in time to save their friend and the future. At first I was confused about the time travel thing. After a while, the movie explained that it is time travel. The future was created by accident. Then it happened. The future and the past were linked by some key event that caused the future to take place. The main character is Joe a young boy who is the grandson of a person who was in the past. In the future, his grandfather was attacked by a giant meteor, and he went back in time to prevent the meteor from hitting. He then went back to the future to save his grandfather. Then they have to find the key event that caused the future to take place. When they find it, the future is going to happen. This movie is definitely a must see!

I enjoyed this film. It has some weird twists, but the characters are not unbelievable. The action was fun to watch. The film has a fantastic ending. It was like a dream. The ending makes the whole movie better, because it makes the film great. I think it is a good movie for kids. It will make them feel good when they are watching it. They will want to watch it again. It has a great ending. I hope the next one will be like that.

I had no idea what this movie would be about. I just watched it on Netflix and was intrigued. From the first scene, I had the feeling that this movie was going to be good. It was very well done, and told a great story. The acting was good, and the movie was nicely paced. You get a feeling that you have watched a high quality movie, and the ending was even really good. This movie is worth watching, even if it is only to check out the acting. I will definitely be watching this movie again. It is great.

I love science fiction and when I read about this movie I thought it would be an excellent story about space travelers, but it turned out to be much more. It was quite interesting, very unique. I don't really know what the ratings are for this movie, but I think it's very good. It's a great movie that will keep you interested. I think this is a very good movie and I give it a 8 out of 10. It's not perfect, but it's very good.

I am usually the type of person who walks into the theater and says "Alright, it was okay, but that's it, I'm not going to see it again." It is always the same with a movie. The first half of the movie is very good, the acting, the special effects, the soundtrack. but in the last half of the movie the two halves sort of go off on their own separate paths. The first half is very good and the acting was really good. The story was going to be a lot better, but the dialogue was really bad. The second half of the movie was not too bad, but the last 20 minutes or so sort of lost it for me. I thought it could've been better. The idea of having the characters think for themselves and not be told what to do was good, but it became the usual thought process of the characters. The next thing that happened was I was thinking about some stupid thing I've heard other people say, and I thought about how stupid and retarded I think they think the characters in the movie are. The acting was great, and the special effects were great, but in the end it's just not good enough for a movie of this kind to be good. It's still a decent movie, but I would avoid it if you have nothing else to watch. So I still give the movie a 9.

I really enjoyed this movie, though I have to say I expected it to be better. It's not a complete shocker. A good plot and good acting to go with it. I thought the music was great, the story was interesting, and the special effects were just awesome. It kept me thinking, wondering what would happen next, and that was a good thing for me. I am not a deep movie fan, but this one I would recommend to anyone. There is no doubt you'll be scared. I did not find the ending to be predictable, and it still left me wanting to see what happens next. I would definitely see it again. I would watch it over and over, especially if I was going for another scary movie. I definitely enjoyed it, and I wouldn't hesitate to see it again.

Even with the realistic effects, this movie still manages to be entertaining. The story line is a bit different from what you see in most big budget Hollywood movies, but its worth the time to watch it. I liked the characters, I liked the acting, and I like the story. Don't expect to be blown away, because this movie will keep you on your seat. I rate this movie 9/10. See this movie.

I could not get over how inventive this film is. I liked the idea of the robot killers. I mean, of course you don't want a character in a movie who is just going to shoot people, but this is a totally different concept, and one that seems perfectly suited for the movie. Not only is the film visually stunning, but the acting is excellent. The story is novel, the world is interesting, and the acting is wonderful. If you like this genre, I recommend watching it.

This film was nominated for three Academy Awards. It's a beautiful piece of work and the actors were extremely good. It's so rare to find a film where the emotions and ideas come out. It's an emotional ride that really stayed with me. I give it an 8 out of 10. This is a perfect movie to watch with your wife, partner, friends or girlfriend.

What was it that I watched in a movie theater in January 2011? Is it one of those strange, super-lensed movies that stays with you after? Or it was just an hour I won't soon forget? Or it was the first time in years I've seen this movie? It took two thumbs down to these movies, to those who gave it bad reviews. These movies aren't art, they are movies, movies, and movies. Even if you can't stand them, at least give them a chance. There are so many examples of horror movies that fall flat on their face that you may never see one of these movies that actually sticks to your mind. They could be the most scarring experiences of your life. The other night, I caught Wave in the theater. I walked into the theater and was completely impressed by this movie. It had everything I could ever ask for in a horror movie, and I must say that even after I watched this film about an hour ago, it had left its mark. The characters were all done perfectly, the soundtrack was awesome and the acting was excellent. Now, let me tell you why I think this movie was awesome. It is one of those rare movies that does not require a single character to actually be special. The concept of the story was great. The characters were all done brilliantly, and not only that, but the story was done perfectly. When I saw the name of the director, "Elliott Carter" in my notes, I knew that this movie would be perfect. Then, the movie starts. But I already knew that. I never left the cinema, I just stayed until it ended. It was that good. So, I will stop raving about the movie. It was great. Don't go to the theater and expect something that can't deliver the goods. Go and enjoy. Wave, and I look forward to your next film, Mr. Weaver. We are proud to present this film to you.

The wave was a novel I read recently, and I was surprised at how it played out, not the least of which was how the character of Mitchell Dunstan ended up. I had read other comments saying that he and his sister were not a normal family in this movie, but when they were separated, I felt that this was a great place to start. First off, we can all relate to some of the circumstances that made them a family, and both sets of parents did a good job of showing how they felt and acted in those difficult circumstances. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a family in a movie like this before. I'm also really impressed with how close they came to sticking together, even though they were separated and she was sexually assaulting him, and even when his son died, he didn't do it, but as he started to deal with the shock and horror of what had happened, he came to the realization that it wasn't going to get any easier for his wife or his daughter. He came to the realization that it was his daughter that was the one that was sexually assaulting him, and that what happened was not his fault. The movie also made you understand that there is a cost to being a parent in this world, and both sets of parents showed a great deal of concern and empathy for each other, and that they cared enough about one another to keep living and going forward, and that is really important in this world. If only more movies like this existed, and only more movies like this could be made, and that is something that would be truly great.

Okay, this movie sucked big time, but, at least the start sucked. It was pure goosebumps in my pants. Suddenly, I was in the middle of a WOW. This movie kicked my mind into an action stage and all I could do was stare at my screen and fantasize about the scenes and what they could mean. Then, suddenly, the movie shifted to "normal". I could smell that the movie was going downhill from the second it started. You could tell when the ending would occur. The ending of the movie could only be described as "very disappointing". The ending of the movie became too predictable and now I am a real movie connoisseur. I really cannot say that this movie sucked big time, but, it definitely did. Overall, the movie was "almost as good as the first one" but, it could have been better. I just feel like the movie just took a wrong turn and ended it on a really bad note. I would suggest this movie to only those who are looking for a quick action movie and I would be very disappointed if anyone saw this movie. There were a few more positives than negatives but, I have to get back to the book and do my best to not let it come to me again.

My name is Daniel Allen and i was wondering if i would be able to go see this friend wanted to see the movie and i had seen the trailer,but i wanted to see it and try out the film.When i went in i wasn't sure if i would like it or not,but i found myself being completely captivated by the whole experience.I was so very happy that i was able to go to see the movie.The film is set in The Californian town of Warrenton.The town has the reputation of being an endless series of cracks and groups of young people being sick of their lives and just wanting to move on with their life.One of the teens,Robert Hubbard, is taken to a hospital where his body is kept.He has been in a coma for some time.There he meets the doctor who is treating the coma patient.The doctor takes Robert to a police station where a police officer is questioning Robert about some sort of network that he may have used to find a girl.The story ends up revealing how all the networks have been running their own version of 'The Wave' that keeps people in a constant state of sleep-like states.It gives them the ability to travel between all the different continents.The film is thought provoking and's very interesting how they tie it all together.The film is directed by John Shusett and it's very well written and acted.I recommend this film to anyone that wants a good film to watch.John Shusett is a really good director and the movie was very well shot and edited.This movie definitely deserves to be watched and i would definitely recommend it.

You're in for a treat in this film about a crime wave sweeping the world's leading super-security city. You'll find yourself becoming part of it. But with the world is getting more than "Wave" is about and you'll see why. It has an amazing cast, including Owen Wilson, Kirsten Dunst, Billy Crudup, Jon Voight and Jon Bon Jovi, all of whom are awesome. After the film, don't miss the pre-release screening in the Washington Square theatre. (The show started at 5:00pm and the show ended at 7:00pm - a 21-year tradition) This is one of the most diverse films I have ever seen! There is a real message about getting rid of the human-burden and accepting our responsibility to be strong instead. Wonderful cast. Especially Wilson.

This is an excellent film for the conscious viewer and i'm sure for many will be able to get into the film and get more than it may seem at first. What is quite disturbing is that people who wrote reviews like this are in fact the kind of people who actually see the film and then have no idea what they have actually seen. The world is full of people who only see the big picture and will do just about anything to see the good of something that most would consider to be negative. It also seems as though that this type of person's are very likely to go through life with a negative attitude and have no real positive aspect to it, even though the reality for these people might be quite nice. I was moved by this film and will probably go to see it again, mainly because I want to see what all the fuss was about. Also, it has a message of hope and being there for one another and in a time of such big change and changing times we have to all be there for each other and show each other that this is the way it is, or we might not get through it together.

If you like Alien movies, you'll probably like this one. It has a great atmosphere. I just can't get over the lack of a soundtrack. The score is great, but sometimes it doesn't fit. As far as I can tell the film is called "The Wave". The title would suggest it's a big wave, but if you've seen the movie, you'll know exactly what I mean.

The Wave is a highly original and thought provoking science fiction film. The cast of characters in The Wave is intriguing and engaging. The Film is able to keep you engaged from beginning to end and it really is quite a magical experience. The plot is compelling and the film has a really good ending. The acting is very good, and the performances are realistic and realistic. The Special Effects are not that great, but The Wave does have some excellent CGI, which I did not see in others of this film's predecessors. Overall, The Wave is an excellent film. The acting is very good and the Special Effects are not that great. The film does have some good and great shots of space, and the story is gripping and the direction is very good. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes science fiction or epic adventure. This film is a must see for any sci-fi fan. Grade A
