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

Goofs

At the beginning of the film, a young Alan Hakman looks at the body of a boy who has fallen from a great height, lying in a puddle of blood. Later in the film, we revisit this scene in a flashback and learn that the puddle is actually a can of red paint that Hakman has knocked over. But in the first scene, the puddle is already there before Hakman approaches the body, and we never see him knock over the paint. See more »

This movie definitely makes the final cut
22 February 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I just happened to stumble upon this movie and I began watching because I saw Robin Williams. After watching it I once again had to praise my channel surfing and visual content identifying skills. This was an amazing movie yet again showing the incomparable talent of Robin Williams. Though Williams adds a lot to this movie, the movie was a gem in itself. "Final Cut" had me pondering many things, such as: what if I had a recording chip in my head, would I alter my behavior? Would I be more careful of what I looked at? And if I was a cutter, would I keep quiet about the things I saw? The concept of this story is brilliant and its execution is equally brilliant. Director and writer Omar Naim is well on his way if he continues to produce masterpieces like this.
