It's 2hr 44m long, not sure where they're getting the extra half hour from... It IS a long, slow paced film, yes. Because of the slow pace, lingering shots and boomy soundtrack it feels more like an arty film to be honest - maybe it's better to go into it expecting that rather than a conventional movie. But even though the story doesn't keep me up at night thinking about it afterwards, I think it's still worth seeing.

Honestly, go see it on IMAX - a TV screen won't do justice to this at all.

They probably counted all the trailers etc. at the beginning.

I will probably go see it this weekend.

I saw it twice, and enjoyed it.

There are apparently some hidden depths to it - the 'baseline test' that K does is actually from a book by Nabokov called "Pale Fire" which somewhat mirrors K's story.

My wife and I really enjoyed it. Visually stunning. Yeah, it was a little slow, but it just gave you more time to soak in the world they created rather than rushing through at 90 mph.
