I have never experienced a movie that was more visually and auditorily appealing. That is the one thing I can say to sum up how I feel about this movie. The soundtrack, composed completely by electro legends Daft Punk, is incredible, and it is something that has been actively listened to in my music library ever since the movie came out. And the visuals, especially seen in a 3D theater, are top notch, with everything but the people being animated. The story is flat, and somewhat ill-conceived, but I look past that. This is a movie that I could watch every week for the rest of my life. And if you need further reason to watch it, just remember that you get to see Olivia Wilde in a tight leather outfit, with lightened lines that outline her legs. That alone should give this movie a 3.5/4.0.
