Cruise #2 may have similar curiosities but we didn't follow his story.

That being said, I think they should've just left him dead. By bringing out Cruise 2, it's like having a twin brother coming in at the end. Looks the same; different person in the long run.


I still liked the movie however. It's just the ending was half-assed.
Yeah this is all true, again I dont disagree with you, but Cruise 52 did have all of his memories back once he saw Julia, plus he was searching for the house in the forest Cruise 1 built, so he knew enough of Jack Harper to know he would have a house on the lake somewere, it took him 3 years to find it, but Earth is a big place.

I agree, it made sense for me that it took him 3 years to find his home. During those 3 years, all of those memories came back in one way or another.

He says in the movie he searched for the house and it took him 3 years to find it, its the last thing Harper 52 says.

Yep, once he saw Julia, they started coming back almost immediately, at least the movie implied that, then he had 3 years for more to come back.

Hopefully this did enough at the box office to get a sequel/prequel. I'd love to see more.

Just watched this I really liked it, it wasn't a masterpiece buy very good aside from some of the spoonfed monologues and cliched stuff.

I give it a 7.5/10

I just dont know were a sequel could go without being forced though, the Tet was destroyed, and it was the sole reason the planet was almost destroyed.

The only thing I can imagine them doing is exploring the origins of the Tet somehow, and if someone built it or it was its own creation somehow.

Watched this today. Still amazing visuals. I don't get the complaints on the story. I thought it was cool and compelling and held the mystery throughout. This gets a strong 9.5/10

Just watched this, loved it. The film is visually stunning, loved Cruise in this and Andrea Riseborough is gorgeous. I do wonder what happened to Victoria 52 after the Tet was destroyed?

Cool 45 minutes. The rest of it ,extremely shoddy.

Good looking film altough not a big fan of some of the camera work.

The day Kosinski finds a good script, he will certainly make a good film.
