really liked it
bookshelves: movies

I really enjoyed reading this sci-fi guy-lit.
I didn't realise but this was actually a film before it was a novel. I only had vague memories of the movie, like people's heads exploding and the futuristic video-window, so I was approaching this with a fresh mind.
It is, at times, ultra-violent and sex-crazed but the plot is quite gripping.
They did a good job of creating a future that seems credible. Apparently the ending in the book is different to the film so I guess I'll have to watch that sometime.
(p.s. Thanks for the loan James, I'll give it back eventually!)
