Rented this one last night, and I have to say, this was the most disjointed, nonsensical plot I've ever seen. The movie looked great, but the story struggled so hard to make sense of itself, it was just one "are you fricking serious" after another.
The best example of this is when Morgan Freeman and Jaime Lannister just let Cruise and Squeeze ride off on the motorcycle to "find the truth" but really, with what should have been no reasonable expectation that events would unfold as they did.
And the lines are ridiculous. When did Hollywood lose it's ability to craft an even mildly clever one-liner. "That's one pissed off weapon?" "frick you, Sally?" Really? All of that idiotic buildup and that's the best you self-styled "elites" can come up with? That was right up there with "You have so
got to die" from I Robot.
Is it the Idiocracy? Do they think they need to write simpleton monkey one-liners because what used to be clever now sounds "pompous and faggy?"
This also smacks of the ever-present PC chick producer who shoots down all of the writers' ideas because every single one of them might offend someone, somewhere, somehow - so they might get a bit of an out, but still suck for not being able to do better.
So, without the shackles of stupidity or severely mis-appointed authority, let's see how many people can come up with a better one-liner for the climax.
The setup: "Sally" an alien supercomputer bent on destroying the human race while raping the planet of water, has just informed Cruise that she is his "god," having cloned/created him. She says this just before Cruise sets off a nuke which destroys the alien craft, and himself (and Morgan Freeman) with it.
Sally: "I created you. I am your God"
Just for the frick of it, I'll go with "Bull shite. God is a dude."
Still better than the movie.
