Movie Review

Rating :

Verdict : unsettling for a scifi thriller that defies all logic and story sense

The film essentially has a good story idea that would work wonders if only given the right direction. But in this version with Keanu Reeves as the lead, everything falls apart. From their acting, dialogues, background score to every single minute of the screen time.

The film starts with a donor being brought into a facility for an experiment where William Foster our lead tries to transfer a dead guy's conscience into a synthetic brain and a metal body. For the story to proceed unfortunately the experiment fails as the subject rips his own body apart due to shock.

In the first scene itself, you can see the makers using very basic gimmicks to get a reaction out of the audience. Showing the eye being injected with the long needle for too long, describing every aspect of the experiment while using a VR screen just does not work anymore.

Keanu Reeves plays the scientist very mechanically. It may be a way to make him look more calculative as a scientist but it just does not sit right with his character and surroundings. It's not just him but the entire cast, the screenplay is very dull and does nothing to help the lack of flare in all the characters.

The second half of the film takes a complete turn from its original story in an attempt to increase the stakes. The film at first a thriller sci-fi becomes an action film in no time. The end is very rushed and gives a happy ending to everyone, there are no good characters in the film essentially. Everyone is bad and everyone is happy.
