That's cool and again I understand that. I guess what bothers me is that - I'll sit and write out my feelings as to why something was good (or bad). Feel free to explain why you do or do not like something. Honestly, I'd like to know - not to argue the point into the ground or change your mind, but to know what someone else thought of the movie in question.
I like a good discussion. =)
I guess that's my failing, cause unless a movie really moves me, I don't feel like taking the time usually to discuss it.
What happened in this movie didn't seem surprising to me. The main character was an asshole to begin with, and though he changed, imo he only changed due to necessity not because of any morality enlightenment. He needed an alien ally to resolve his own physical problem, and that was why he befriended Christopher, if you can call it that. I didn't see him becoming all concerned for them, in fact when he hit Christopher upside the head with the butt of his gun, and took off with the alien youth, that only served to confirm my feelings in that regard. Yea, he protected Christopher in the end, but by then I think he realized what his fate was and chose to go with those who would be his allies in the future. Again, nothing altruistic.
I guess I expected and hoped for more, again my failing. Imo, it didn't deliver.
