Couldn't find a thread for this so apologies if there was one.

Released a while back this year, the latest film by Leigh Whannell, one of the Saw duo.

Pretty solid sci-fi thriller - excellently-executed concept (computerised human enhancement) and design, some great action sequences. Bit light on plot but the ending is a worthwhile flip on what you might expect.

Did anyone else see this?

Saw this yesterday, thought it a bit slow to get going but it motored along once it did. That first fight sequence was grimly amusing. Lead actor had something of the Tom Hardys about him.

Loved it. Some of the acting was occasionally a little underpowered, but nothing crucial. Sympathetic protagonist at least.

Like a lot of SF movies, it may unravel when I watch it a second time, but two thumbs up for now.
