The Day the Earth Stood Still - film review

Went to see the new The Day the Earth Stood Still last night and thought I'd share my thoughts with you. I'm going to make a determined effort not to give away any spoilers or the ending, so here goes:

Things started off really well, in true sci-fi fashion, lots of serious scientists, being very busy and important followed by a series of unexplained events.

Now, as the film goes on, I tried to get interested in the characters but Jennifer Connolley is so bleeding dull I just didn't care about her at all. This all cumulated with me at the end of the film thinking, is this nearly finished and oh, I don't really care what happened to the Earth.

In short, I wouldn't rush to see this if I were you
