Ripley's movie review

The best scene in this movie is at the very beginning, with Tom running through a completely empty Times Square. After that's over, shut it off and save yourself the headache.

Although... hanging around long enough to see Tommy with a considerably less than perfect face might be worth it.....

No, it's not. By that time, you'll want to know what the hell is going on and you'll watch the whole thing. Then you'll get to the end and say, "WTF?!? Are they kidding?!?" and you'll have wasted more than two hours of your life that you can never ever get back.

Shut it off after the Times Square scene. Trust me.
