Something in recent sci-fi that's not completely ridiculous
Something of a mood piece leaning toward gattica over trek in styling and pace, it's a good one to watch when you've seen almost everything and have a cold or for whatever reason get stuck indoors. It's more mature sci-fi instead of talking rodents and giant smurfs.
Considering a movie has such a short time to convey complicated ideas, this film is put together well and shoots and hits at more of those targets than one would expect.
Presentation is good on all fronts. The lead role could have been written for anyone really, male or female and they had to choose one particular lifestyle to represent the story and the one they chose was OK, but some wont like it.
This is a movie that could have gone longer in many directions. The actual science of it all was done well and can serve as an example of a direction that could have gone longer. That's what a good movie does. Makes you want more.
A once watch flick that makes an impact. I'll buy it for the box art and put it on my recommend list.
