There's obviously two categories of people: Those who hate this film for they can't stand watching something not formated for their brain, and those who enjoyed it because they like to see something quiet new that doesn't necessary follow the rules of American blockbusters (and eventually spit on it). I would say this film is far from being flawless, but for many reason, I did appreciate it. OK the accent of the actors is quiet Nordic indeed, yet it does not deteriorate the originality of the whole project, far from it. And tell me, when was the last time you have seen a Norwegian Sci-fi that criticize so hardly American government?? Be open minded and give it a try, you will not regret it.

I heard here and there that the director was 24 when he made this... Well done, I'm 27 and I'm still a student!!!
