I feel a bit indifferent about this film, but J.J. Abrams alone has me sold. Most likely I will watch it, but with a bit of uncertainty. Battle Los Angeles looks massive compared to this, but none the less, this looks fairly exciting.

you could tell me its 3 hours of random people cleaning up after a train crash, with absolutely nothing eciting happening, and I'd still watch it for JJ Abrams and Spielberg's names on it. Yeah, it's that important, just like the steak sauce
