There should have been only one antagonistic force, maybe? Nothing is explained in any way (like who the fuck is the biker guy?) and it's not compelling enough to remain a mystery. When they call in the old lady and she starts doing annoying shit like wearing gas masks and calling limbo, "the further" I kind of signed off.

That being said, I disagree big time on Rose Byrne. I think she's got plenty to offer as well as good looks:
Rose Byrne is awesome and can elevate even mediocre material, lights up the screen.
I'll take her over Nicole Kidman and many others any time.
