    Well, I found this to be a very pleasant surprise. It has a pretty poor rep (just look at the other comments), which I can’t help but feel stems back to expectations on its release in the wake of Star Wars, when presumably people expected a fast-paced action-adventure. But it's something different entirely; almost more akin to 2001 in its sense of wonder and exploration, digging into an imagining of a genuinely alien lifeform rather than running about blasting rubber suits with laser guns. Engaged with on the right terms, I enjoyed every minute of it. 3 years 4 months ago

    Terrific special effects, but boring and slow moving movie. Enjoyed the sequels much more than the first movie. 11 years 4 months ago

    Agreed whit past comments. When you feel you can't deal with the boringness, this movie gives you a mind blow. The V'ger entity is a must-see for sci-fi enthusiasts. 12 years 2 months ago
