I simply hoped that it wouldn’t be a total disaster and I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoyed the movie. Yes, there were some flaws and very blatant and obvious plot holes, but the movie managed to make up for it in other ways. The result was a movie that I am going to recommend to everyone who likes action science fiction (namely dystopian).
