While Theron doesn't strike me as intellectual futurism material the plot is dystopian enough to attract my attention.
Reminding me of the poorly titled "The Island" seeemed very Logan's Runish'. However, I think it was an awsome futuristic study worth seeing and owning, a summer favorite.
Then there is Serenity: Battle Star Galactica meets Matrix meets Gunsmoke? My wife and I liked it. Pleasantly surprised, she found the slang distracting, but for me it was endearing.
