Storyline

In a dystopian future society, policing has been privatized by the government, and victims of crime and/or their families must pay the cost of investigating and punishing criminals. This measure has been adopted to facilitate the neutralization of dissidents by the government. A combined police and security corporation employs the latest hardware in order to closely monitor the population and eliminate any threats. Veteran detective Michael Kelly tries to accustom himself to this new, profit-oriented police organization and also to his new partner Jane Sikorski. These two officers have been assigned a "top priority" murder case, but everything about it is not as it seems. The killer manages to slip past all the high-tech security measures and does not even register on the all-seeing surveillance cameras, which indicates that he or she is not human! A beautiful and mysterious figure called Athena introduces Kelly to the world of "killer androids". These bio-mechanical devices are being... Written by ikiru

Mildly interesting "Blade Runner" homage
2 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another dystopian future, in which corrupt privatized police snoop everywhere and surveillance is universal. But a series of murders begin in which the surveillance technology doesn't work; the murderer/s don't seem to be human. The main character's most emotional relationship is with a holo-video of his departed wife. The intended effect seems to be Dickian (as in Philip K. Dick) paranoid moodiness, intensified by many of the scenes taking place through set surveillance cams; this certainly saved a lot of money by enabling stock shots to be used over and over again and gave the production a "techno" feel which can get a bit wearying, not unlike techno music. That being said, the whole is a competent student effort--very derivative, like all student efforts, but I would like to see more from these people.
