Dark side of technologies to come
11 April 2017 | by Dusan Luigi IndjicSee all my reviews

I think this title is being underrated, having on mind low budget approach and the difficulties it makes for the production team. Thus, it's a narrow guided story about mostly negative sides of fast approaching technologies like, among others: augmented reality, communications, robotics, body/nerve augmentation (i.e. implants), artificial intelligence, so forth so on.

It is put in dystopian corporation-based society. But if put objectively, it must be. If one looks around from just a bit of distance, that's exactly what's happening in this century; being predicted by many authors, books and movies. Along with technologies that they will fight upon. Humane factor will be less and less present not only because of falling financial (economy-driven) importance in neoliberal society, but also of all the perks the technology gives over human (if both physically and emotionally is for the viewer to conclude).

But yes, almost every movie making aspect should be "More". It's thin in most cinematographic aspects. Instead of listing them I will just say why I gave it a 4 over 3. Basically, the audacity of makers to approach such a rich subject in the quite expansive Action-styled genre of Sci-Fi, and a pleasure to see those technologies visualized (mostly from first-person camera). I think it's worth a look for all the lovers of those, for it will give them yet another glimpse into some aspects of coming Brave New world.
