    Unfortunate Synopsis

    This movie took a very simple story with a powerful message, didn't complicate it or draw it out, and the result was a great movie. Great execution -- a 90-minute story told in 90 minutes, without a wasted scene to dilute its point. 3 years 9 months ago

    One of Kubrick's more accessible films, and mostly riveting to watch. Douglas is phenomenal, but the philosophical questions raised about death, brains, power, sentiment, bravery and cowardice in the face of impossibility are the real stand-out stars of this film.

    It's like a Kubrick film for people that don't like Kubrick films.
