An Outstanding B-Movie
14 May 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lance Bishop (Adam Baldwin) is a common thirty-three years old American citizen, married with his beloved wife Karen (Elizabeth Berkley) and working in an insurance company. When a deranged shooter invades the building where Lance works, and shoots killing and hurting some colleagues of Lance, the guy tries to kill him and tells that he is saving Lance from a horrible destiny. Soon Bishop has nightmares and his life changes when he discovers what is the cause of his bad dreams.

This is the beginning of one of the best science-fiction movies I have recently seen. The plot contains elements of "They Live", "Total Recall", "X-Files" and "Matrix" and is very engaging. I really do not understand the unfair IMDb User rating of 4.6 for such an outstanding B-movie. Fortunately I bought this VHS without seeing this ridiculous quotation. The story, of a government agency controlling the hearts and souls of the population, in an experiment aimed "to increase the productivity of the workers, control the criminality and even the elections", is spectacular. I can not write much more about this intriguing story, because the mystery deserves to be disclosed and appreciated by the viewer. I really liked this movie a lot, all the team (director, writer, cast, producer, crew etc.) deserves a congratulation and my vote is ten for such a wonderful and magnificent surprise.

Title (Brazil): "O Controle da Mente" ("The Mind Control")

Note: On 26 September 2015, I saw this film again.
