Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –

 

1) The primary sci-fi plot is revolutionary. The story-line, however, was mediocre with a mediocre villain till the climactic mind-fuck plot twist which elevated the entire movie.
2) Opening establishment shots, Jake’s train jump shot. Quality CGI scene.
3) No silly sub-plots. Fast paced.
