I was pleasantly surprised just how much I enjoyed this.
It really does crank up the tension and I didn't see The TwistTM coming, but then I hadn't read any reviews.
The first recap of events, with Sigourney Weaver, was fantastically tense. I nearly jumped out of my seat twice, which wasn't very attractive considering my long legs were cascading over the seats in front of me.
And because I hadn't read any reviews, I didn't realise Edgar Ramirez was in it, last seen trying to kill Matt Damon in the Bourne Ultimatum, and shagging Kiera Knightly in Domino. He would be in my definite top 5 aggressive South American tops list. Such lovely arms.
This film has taught me that if you are ever in a terrorist attack, you need a SONY camcorder. They are quite clearly brilliant and very durable.
I also like how US movie Presidents are always so kickass and resourceful. Do you think they are over-compensating for the real versions? I wish British film Prime Ministers were more like that rather than a bit stuffy and eccentric.

I was ridiculously excited about this largely because of the promise of some Eduardo Noriega (he plays the Spanish policeman who gets chased a lot and is immensely hot in general). Hmm I thought that as a film it was a tad rubbish though - the constant rewinding was a bit duff and overdone. I'm not surprised that Forest Whittaker is distancing himself from it, his charcter is embarassingly bad. I would have liked to know more about what Matthew Fox's beef was. Sigourney Weaver was in it for exactly 3 minutes. Ach, I guess I just felt it was an anticlimax, as there was hardly any Eduardo action and his clothes didn't accidentally fall off like they usually do in his films.
