This film will prompt deep philosophical questions, such as:

How much bullshit science is permissible in the realm of science fiction before it becomes an offensive propagation of false information?

Let’s set aside for a moment that the entire premise of this film, that we only use 10% of our brains, will be absurd to anyone with a basic comprehension of neuroscience; it is a fictitious scenario that is the basis for the entire plot, fine. Why then, is every other scientific, historical, biological, even geological reference, non essential to the plot, glaringly incorrect?

I suppose I am being a nerd here, but it’s ironic how a movie about using more of ones’ brain requires the audience to use so little of theirs. This would be forgiveable if the movie was entertaining, but it was not.

Morgan Freeman plays Morgan Freeman and Scarlett Johansson wastes her time and talent.

4.5/10
