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!

Surprisingly watchable low budget Sci-Fi
8 September 2004 | by ostynewSee all my reviews

This is an independent release with a script that highlights how real creativity is often missing from summer blockbusters. First it tells a good story. But after it was over I found myself thinking about what it means to be sentient and morality in an immoral world.

Excellent acting, especially since I can't find any other credits for the actors. The sets and special effects work well enough that I seldom noticed the corners cut to save money.

A cop is trying to cope with his profit driven police force. He & his new partner are assigned to find an assassin who has evaded all high-tech security measures. Even the all-seeing surveillance cameras have no record of the killer's movements.

7 out of 10 and a sincere hope everyone involved makes more movies.
