wife and i enjoy scifi a lot. went to go see this and if you like good 1960's era style scifi stories this is along the lines of something heinlein might have written. very very very well done scifi flick.

its on my must buy dvd list

I'm a Heinlein fan, so that endorsement makes the movie more appealing to me.

Thanks for the mini Review. R.A.H. Was a Master. An uncle of mine taught many subjects at the UnderGrad and Glad College level and got to meet him once at a Writers Guild conference.

my only complaint would have to be, they could have added about 30 more minutes allowing the lucy character more introspection of what was happening.

in one scene they did it well with internal dialogue then its like they cut the rest of those pieces from the film if they existed.

but, that being said its a great scifi flick in a wasteland of movies in the last decade

The movie looks really good! This only reinforces that for me!
