Have to disagree. I loved Cast Away, and Moon was an absolutely epic film. Science fiction fans should be used to smaller casts. Alien and 2001: A Space Odyssey were slow paced, small casts that were fantastic. Post-apocalyptic pretty much requires smaller casts. The Road was an incredible flick, and Children of Men and the two "28" films were good.
I admit I have a problem separating the actor from the character, but I'll probably see this anyway. Freeman is one of my favorite actors.
