It's only a trailer so far, so I can't speak to the quality of the actual movie, but what a trailer it is...

Looks cool. It's like a world full of Nightcrawlers. Very odd concept, but glad to see Doug Liman behind it.

Yeah, I was really intrigued by this trailer. I always love seeing artists take very particular things from their favored medium and use it to full effect. In this case, an entire story concept revolves around something as simple as a jumpcut. Heheh. I'm curious to see this film.

I love how beautifully the trailer is cut together. First it's just the one guy and he's rich and can do whatever he wants and you think to yourself, wow, that would be a cool power to have. Then, it turns out that he's not alone. Hmm. And then it turns out that their are people who not only know about him, but want to hurt him. And not just anyone, but Samuel L. Jackson.

I want to know what happens next.

The movie is based on a novel -- I'm going to get it from the library and see if it's any good.

LOL You're right. It is just a fancy jump cut.

This film looks nuts. Can't wait to see it!

Maybe Hayden Christensen will redeem himself, post-prequels.
