Director: Joseph Kosinski. Cast: Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. 124 min. Rated PG-13. Sci-Fi/Action.
Kosinski is a sci-fi director to keep an eye on. After face-lifting Tron through a philosophical 2010 sequel, here he creates an extremely intelligent version of a famous (but lousy) 1990s alien invasion sci-fi, by telling the story of a couple who after succeeding an apocalyptic battle with aliens, stay behind to maintain drones that secure the remains of a devastated Earth. Twist after twist after satisfying twist, makes you wonder about the components of human identity, and what is defined as "us" as opposed to "them". I'm eager to see what Kosinski has in store for us next.
PS: Sina and Mohi, you were right. This was better than After Earth.
