It sounds good, I'll be checking it out.
I'm glad to hear this was good - I saw the previews and couldn't wait to see it - then I saw reviews on it that didn't exactly put it in a good light - so I am definitely going to see it this week!
I hated this movie. Such a cheesy explanation for the goings-on, too many chase scenes, and a sappy ending. My advice: wait for cable... or at least pay matinee prices.
Not that I'm opinionated... haha!
The story ended too quickly, and left too many questions unanswered. It's kind of the complete opposite of The Villiage but just as bad because you have no idea of what exactly is going on.
Well, I saw it this past weekend, and overall it's ok and Julianne Moore put in a decent job as a grieving mother. Unfortunately the film had plot-holes, and left us hanging with unanswered questions. It did little to explain what had happened in the film, and basically left us to use our imagination. Some great jumpy moments and that's basically it.
Saw it, didn't like it.
Mainly because I didn't get it. I have some questions, could someone help me by answering them?
Click to see Spoiler:1) What experiment were they trying to do exactly?
2) So they were aliens, and that's it?
3) Why was the government working with them?
4) Who was that guy who was an alien? What was his exact role and who was he talking to when he was sucked back up into the sky?
5) What would happen when the people were sucked into the sky?
The only jolts I had? (And trust me...I am an absolute wreck at horror/jump films) I only had 3. Lame.
Click to see Spoiler:1) When the black lady was sucked up. I knew it was coming from the trailer, but still made me shriek because it still was sudden.
2) When Ash was sucked up, didn't surprise me because again, trailer and it just wasn't all in your face
3) When the guy screamed and turned into an alien
I have many questions because the dumb movie didn't bother to answer any
I thought the movie was suspensful, and Julianne Moore was great as the grief-stricken mother. I thought the movie was pretty good, but it could've been so much better if it hadn't been for the ending.
There were so many unanswered questions, and all I was left thinking was "Is that it?"
Frosty, I'll attempt to answer your questions with what I got from the movie. Hopefully, my interpretations aren't that way off.

I totally agree with Wolf. This had the potential to be a great movie - Julianne Moore was excellent and it certainly kept you interested all the way through. There were about three times in the movie when I jumped. I was on the edge of my seat, anxious for the outcome. Then....... nothing. What kind of ending is that? IMO, the ending does not fit the movie and is a huge disappointment. I was expecting something edgy, exciting, bizarre, anything that paralleled the movie. Instead it just died, and left a lot of unanswered questions. I have been telling my friends to not waste their money, but to wait until it hits the "cheap seats" or video.
The premise was good but it didn't deliver the goods. But, to digress, don't you love when you can take a movies' title and make a one-line review of the movie in question: ie " The Forgotten - to be forgotten as soon as you leave the theatre" " The Forgotten - forget about going" " The Forgotten - leave it unremembered"...ah, such language usage amuses me (and they're not even good ones, just the first that came to mind!). Ok. I go now.

This movie started out slow and left many unanswered questions... There were several parts were I literally jumped out of my seat... But not enough for me to say this is a great movie... It's a dvd rental rather then a 8.50 movie ticket purchase.
