Goofs

When the doctor is testing the robotic arm, the space directly under the table is covered (presumably by a box or a panel with a hidden actor). However as the robotic arm is removed from the table, the space beneath it becomes empty and transparent. See more »

The ideas carry it.
24 April 2008 | by doctoris50See all my reviews

Maybe I just like robots too much, but having only just seen this, I happen to quite like it. The ideas are familiar by now, the production values make Star Trek look extremely flashy, and the characters tend towards wooden, but somehow it's better than all the expensive monster movies that pass for sci-fi lately. Fans of Blade Runner might appreciate this one. There are lots of little dialogue details worth paying attention to, which add a lot of context. Some older comments suggested this was one of the worst films the viewer had ever seen. I don't think it's even in that contest. It stands head and shoulders above dozens of sci-fi movies I've seen, some of them old and some of them new. Watch it if you can find it. :)
