    Williams has extraordinary success in channeling this other person.
  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.

    Striking visuals help, but pic won't make the final cut with either genre fans, who've seen it all and better before, or the arthouse crowd, who will sneer at pic's cliches.
  5. The thriller with a promising premise fails to deliver.
  6. Fairly well done but deadly dull futuristic thriller.
  7. 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. Expand
