Babylon A. D.

Babylon A. D. is a 2008 Vin Diesel science fiction action film. Mélanie Thierry, Michelle Yeoh, Charlotte Rampling, and Gérard Depardieu are also in this movie. I like Vin Diesel's movies, and I like this. I'm not at all bothered that he's not a critics darling. His movies suit me just fine.


Moria discusses the director's problems, but says, "serviceable and certainly watchable film". Empire Online gives it 2 out of 5 stars and calls it a "Brawny but brainless techno-twaddle". Time Out also gives it 2 out of 5 stars. EW grades it a D+, calls it derivative and says it's "a lumpy mixture of The Fifth Element and Children of Men, while its dystopian future references Blade Runner, Dune, and The Matrix." DVD Talk blames the director but also just does not like Vin Diesel. Rotten Tomatoes has a critics rating of 6%.
