  1. So fascinating and has so many implications that it balances out some real flaws in the story.
  2. A slick sci-fi thriller that comes complete with enough twists to keep audiences satisfied and enough moral quandaries to keep the thinkers happy.
  3. One of the year's few sci-fi films that actually takes itself seriously, and a movie that goes a long way on the strength of its unique premise, steady performances and impressive visual style.
  4. The thriller with a promising premise fails to deliver.
  5. 40
    The movie becomes so cluttered with concept and design, it fails to get even a toehold on the humanistic subtext it's clearly reaching for. A pallid performance by Mira Sorvino, as Williams' girlfriend and advocate for the fully lived and recorded life, doesn't help.
  6. Fairly well done but deadly dull futuristic thriller.
  7. 25
    Taxes the patience of even the most willing viewer with its sheer nonsense: It's distractingly illogical.

    Intriguing and intelligent movie that draws you in and keeps you thinking long after it's over.

Unfortunately they left out one small detail...an actual plot. Nothing happens in this movie until the last few minutes when [***SPOILER***] somebody chases Robin Williams through the woods for a little while and shoots him. It was stupid, boring, and just plain bad. Expand
