Storyline

The story is set in a world where implanted microchips can record all moments of an individual's life. The chips are removed upon death so the images can be edited into something of a highlight reel for loved ones who want to remember the deceased. Caviezel portrays the leader of the organization that opposes this technology's development. Written by Bubba

Trivia

This movie does not appear to take place in our universe nor share its time-line. Cars, homes, dress, and furnishings sometimes appear to be from our past or present, while certain technologies, obviously, do not yet exist in our world. Therefore, it does not matter if the events take place in a present, past, or future. In fact, no date is ever revealed nor mentioned in the movie. Even the tombstones in the graveyard scene have no birth or death dates. See more »

Goofs

The paper announcing Bannister's death states that he was 54 when he died. But, when Alan loads his implant for the first time, it states that there are 544,628 life hours to review. That number of hours would make him over 62 years of age. See more »

Intriguing plot, intense acting
25 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

The plot is timely and intriguing, providing lots of food for thought as to the perhaps not-too-far future prospects of technology and our own legacies.

I agree the relationship between Williams' character and his love interest was too sketchy. With a few extra minutes expanding on those two, the film might have been more fleshed out. Overall, I enjoyed the movie. It really gave us pause to reflect on the pros and cons of the "Zoe Implant" and "rememories." Appreciated the intense acting abilities of Williams and Caviezel; otherwise, the movie might have lagged even more.

I thought the angles of the camera shots were interesting.
