Set in the near future 2017, "Platinum Data" refers to an ideal system of keeping track of all the citizenry by means of their DNA especially with regards to solving crimes. Young genius Ryuhei Kagura makes this dream project a reality. However, when two key members of his own staff get brutally murdered, Ryuhei's own DNA was identified by the system as the perpetrator. Can Ryuhei prove his innocence and still get to the bottom of the crime against the autistic mathematical savant girl he loves, Saki?
This DNA identification system is very much within the realm of reality even now. However, there are limitations which this film also delved on, which becomes the motives behind the crimes connected with the project. The way the program comes up with the composite three- dimensional image of a criminal based on the DNA-based clues he leaves behind is amazing. Also very interesting is the way of pinpointing actual locations of a person of interest based on his DNA data.
The result is an absorbing and unpredictable suspenseful film that will keep you thinking to the end. The computer visual effects were very well-done. The actor who played Ryuhei underplays his showy role well. There were some dramatic elements which may bog the pace of the storytelling, but were interesting and novel in presentation, nevertheless, despite having familiar devices already previously used in many films of this genre.
