From watching the trailer, I've been looking very much forward to this movie. It might have disappointed me in some ways, but then it surprised me positively in others!
I'm kind of a post-apocalyptic fan, if there is such a thing. The whole idea of how the human race would take it to be almost wiped out and have to start all over is a great and interesting thought.
This movie has a rather religious take on it, which worked for the movie, but by concept I'm not a fan of, since if do not give much for religion. But if all knowledge of religion was erased and the world was going towards hell, it might be a good idea to try to bring back some of the "values" from religion!?
Washington and Oldman does a great job in this movie, which is important since they are key elements. The directors has been experimenting with the visuals and have ended up with a unique and perfectly matching look for the post-apocalyptic world. BUT sometimes they over do the computer manipulated backgrounds and lightning, which is a shame.
The worst thing is properly the ending, but it is one of those endings where you mentally just cuts of 5 minuttes before and ignore that the director and/or writer had been smoking to much crack growing up[arhhh kidding]...
