  1. Fairly well done but deadly dull futuristic thriller.

    Williams gives a performance that's honest and carefully wrought but on some level still a stunt. All that courtliness is wearing him out, and it's wearing us out too.

    Pressing on in grimly introverted "One Hour Photo" mode, Williams only stirs nostalgia for his slapstick days (ghastly '90s roles notwithstanding)--he's such a natural-born ham he manages to overdo understatement.
  4. Cut-and-dried sci-fi thriller.
  5. 25
    Taxes the patience of even the most willing viewer with its sheer nonsense: It's distractingly illogical.
  6. 25
    It's not a bad premise for a movie, but writer-director Omar Naim, a 26-year-old Lebanese native making his feature debut, proves equally inept at handling plotting, actors and pacing.

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. Full Review »

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