Michael Rawlins is only 5'2", so when he was making a command decision or talking authoritatively, select camera angles had to be used to hide the fact that he was shorter than the people he was in charge of. See more »

The instinct to avenge a partner's death is something you don't see anymore.
Yeah, I can see how that would get lost when you live your life under a surveillance camera.
You're not suggesting the attempts to make this a safer and more perfect world have actually resulted in a loss of individual freedom, are you?

Very well-performed with a complex, intelligent plot.
A movie with subtle, nuanced performances and a complex, intelligent plot - this was far-removed from the mind-numbing "action-adventure" flick suggested by the promotional material and was a delightful surprise! I expect that even those not fond of the Sci-Fi genre will find something to like in here: the main characters are dimensional, far more intellectual than tough, & they exhibit an unexpected gentleness that makes them easy to care about (the performances of Karl Pruner and Matthew Bennett are particularly riveting). The plot has many layers and features enough intrigue to keep you guessing through most of the film (though, as it was also the pilot for the television series, there are a number of questions left deliberately unanswered). There is also action enough for those to whom that is important and an amazing array of brilliant special effects! It requires the viewer to pay attention, but the viewer is well-rewarded for the effort: it's a good film to see!
