One Of The Best...
4 September 2009 | by (heart) – See all my reviews

maybe many people will find this movie slow or boring or the worst uninteresting... but if you are also dealing with future technologies and if you know a lot about where we are going at like me; you can just say its a masterpiece... its fantastic and a must to see... its not about how a hero can save the world... its not about how a hero can save his life... not about how a hero can save someones life... its about what we are and will soon be... most of the systems are now in use of governments... the idea of a sleeping worker was the idea of Alfred bester in his Tiger Tiger novel... but director didn't steal the story... i think he used as it has to be used... i wont tell you the idea... read that book also you will see... director used it much better than in the novel... and just find it and watch it anywhere you can... as soon as you can...
