[HINT: 9 action film titles are hidden in the review below.]
Well done, director Duncan Jones (son of David Bowie). From it’s inception, this film knows it must have a target audience with high expectations. It’s essentially catering to film tourists. Despite the apparent clash, the titan who traverses the continuum through the darkness of one night only to tread the dawn of an uncertain next day, Jake Gyllenhaal heroically sleuths like a true Holmes from moment one without forcibly satisfying the classic need to tell the background details right away. They unfold these truths in tandem with the plot – how refreshing! Exciting, intriguing, and true to code: Sci Fi action at it’s best: See it.
