Quotes

[first lines]
Ian: Every living person on this planet has their own unique pair eyes. Each their own universe. My name is Doctor Ian Gray. I'm a father, and husband, and I'm a scientist. When I was a child, I realized that the camera was designed exactly like the human eye, taking in light through a lens, forming it into images. I began taking as many pictures of eyes as I possibly could. I'd like to tell you the story of the eyes that changed my world.

complete lack of logic
21 December 2014 | by (Brisbane) – See all my reviews

I do not usually leave reviews but in this case I have to. As a molecular biologist I have never seen a movie (i have seen many) that fail so completely to even conform with high-school level biology. The acting is great, the idea behind the movie is interesting, but the dialog is completely nonsense. Even a first year university student would laugh or cry. The terminology used does not relate to the subjects discussed in any way. Its like saying "I'm going to drive this bout up the highway, then take left to the moon". If you can handle this gibberish, the drama is good. I just wish they made more out of a great idea, There is no problem with the concept, just that the dialog is completely senseless.
