Set in a world with memory-recording implants, Alan Hakman is a cutter, someone with the power of final edit over people's recorded histories. His latest assignment is one that puts him in danger.
A fitting title if there ever was one! Though the description... it makes it all seem so much more than it is.
It's not an action movie. Not really. But it's not a boring movie either. The lack of projectile-based events that seem to be promised in the movie cover didn't leave me disappointed - as it seems to have left some other fellow reviewers. Instead it just made it feel all the more authentic, if that's the right word for it for a movie of this genre, genre being sci-fi - though there's considerably little of both those elements.
The movie world looks and feels just like our own, current, home world, with just one foreign element: the memory implant. It's almost like the movie takes a stand against it too, should one ever be possible to make.
Robin Williams plays main character Hakman, in yet another future dystopia made like the old world with a little new-tech mixed in. It's not convincing per say, but stars a scary idea, a convincing character, and a personal tale that really doesn't go the way you want it to.
It leaves your in an eerie state of mind. The suspense is real. It's there. It keeps boiling. It's not a perfect movie but... heavy. Worth a watch if you for some reason, like me, like delving into glimpses of what frightful flicks of fate our future might have in store for us. If we do its bidding. Good watch.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
Score based more on content than quality; a convincing cast more so than circumstance and scenery.
