Director: Robert Rodriguez
Bit disappointing this one. I can imagine the pitch – ‘Bourne Identity’ meets ‘Rollerball’ in the ‘Robots’ animation. Unfortunately it just glues together all the cliches from each of those films and just presents them with the latest gee-whizz CGI mixing humans and graphics. But yet another amnesia recovery story?
Having said that, Christophe Waltz as the android doctor was my biggest problem, he seemed to be very conciously and deliberately ‘acting’.
That was closely followed by the Jennifer Connolly story line, completely inconsistent and unconvincing. The doctors ex-wife, who also turns out to be pretty handy with human mechanical interfaces. Except in stockings and suspenders for some reason.
Might appeal to people who enjoyed:
Popcorn sci fi starring Tom Cruise.
