    Quite torn on this one. For half the runtime I was somewhat entertained, for the other half I was annoyed out of my mind. Much of the film feels like pointless, directionless hysterics being masked as raw emotion simply for the sake of making the audience "feel" something - most notably the subway tunnel scene which I found to be insufferable. Some unintentional humor and generally bad performances don't help either. The cinematography, musical score, and practical effects were great however, and Isabelle Adjani do be hot as fuck. Overall, there's a lot to admire here but I can't say I enjoyed it very much.
