Great movie. I didn't really expect the ending at all. 7.5/10
Also the use of the song "Sweetness Follows" by REM was perfectly timed and very effective.
8.6/10 I don't care what Ebert & Roeper had to say about this film. There are lessons here that touch upon vanity and selfishness that few, if any, films I have seen approach. This movie reaches levels of desperation and hopelessness that we as the viewer will likely never experience. A humbling film. And a great twist at the end. Bravo.
Ya, nice one, one of the best of Tom Cruise, also in my opinion. TY SM! o/
I agree with EnkiHoffa. It's a great film, I would say better and more exciting than the original. I also would say even though it's not one of my favorites I always remember the brilliant use of music in the climax.
If you've never seen it and shut it down after 25mins, you are really not doing yourself any favors.

The story develops throughout the entire movie, the climax occurs later than most films, and the overall pay-off is significant - even though it doesn't begin until the final 20-30mins of the film.
25 minutes into this movie I had to shut it off it was so boring.
Personally, I thought it was one of the best films made. Critics didn't like it, their loss. A wonderful and puzzling film. It makes you think about it after you leave the screen.
:fresh: Vanilla sky has gotten a lot of negative reviews with a few notable exceptions i.e. both Ebert & Roeper and the NY Times liked it. I have to say that most of the criticisms I have read about the movie have been way off the mark except for the budget giving the movie a very polished feel but the polish is an essential motor of the film. I rented it on DVD after seeing an episode of Ebert & Roeper well after the film had been reviewed in which both critics agreed that Vanilla Sky was very underrated. I saw it with very little expectation since E&R are hit or miss with me and I was captivated. If you have seen the film Exiztenz or generally like thinking and have your mind bent Vanilla Sky is worth viewing. It contains very subtle moral messages that are not driven home but are meandered around in a way that is applicable to 'real' life. You'll want to see it at least twice if not many more.
I'm listening to my favourite music right's from the Vanilla Sky and Almost Famous, Cameron Crowe just knows how to choose supergood music for his movies....
