Exactly. As a tech demo... fantastic. ( if artistically, a bit sterile ).
As a film?... awful. Just awful.
What happened to James Cameron. From Terminator and Aliens... to Titanic and Avatar. The better the tech, the worse the movies. Go figure.
I have to agree with this. I find myself liking movies with less high tech stuff better than the ones with special effects behind every corner. One exception is the first Matrix movie.
