    I'm planning to go see it, mainly for the simple reason part of it was filmed in the parking garage in my building (we have a really freaky parking garage) and down the block from were I work, so I'm interested in seeing how it looks.

    The movie does look interesting.

    I can't stand Scarlett Johansen, but the story is good from what I've heard and it's got that fab Ewan MacGregor in it.

    Kao: I can't stand Scarlett Johansen either. However I LOVE Ewan McGregor, Djimon Hounsou, Steve Buscemi and Michael Clarke Duncan so this was a must see for me. Hubby and I saw it this afternoon to celebrate our last day of being non-parents *laugh* It was a most excellent way to take my mind off of my nerves for a few hours. I loved the movie

    There's something about that girl that just makes me want to slap her repeately until I get tired (I absolutely DETESTED her character in Lost In Translation, which might have something to do with it), but I love me some MacGregor (with or without clothes), Hounsou, Duncan and Buscemi so I might go and have a peek. Is it teen-friendly?

    How young of teen? Well, yeah. Actually I'd say it is.
    There was some strong language, but I believe it was F-Bomb free.
    There was one very mild love scene, it showed a lot of kissing with SJ in a bra briefly..nothing more. A lot of exiting chase scenes that might scare a child, but anyone of 13 and up has seen more violence on their Playstations. *not that I necessarily agree with that*

    I saw a sneak preview for the movie. I thought it was entertaining and it seemed like the entire audience liked it.

    However it wasn't memorable. I remember sitting next to an extremely old woman and was horribly frightened that she was going to have an heartattack watching the action scenes (and then I realized she was half-deaf) and my friend was sitting beside two young boys with a problem with their stench.
