Mine: Very well plotted and interesting movie. Leaves more questions than it answers, but that is alright. Top notch performance by Jodie Foster. Highly recommended, expecially if yo have any interest in astonomy. Makes me want to get involved in the SETI@home project agian.

Parts were really predictable and yet, the end was good. A movie that makes you think.
