So many good ideas, just needed a stronger final few minutes
23 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

We open the film Sight with a scene featuring the main character lying on his belly in his front room, appearing to be doing some sort of stretching or something. We realize that he is actually playing a sky- diving game which is in his "Sight" technology – an interface that works with the eyes and brain to project images directly. Although the walls of his home appear empty, through the eyes of Patrick we can see rolling news, information windows, trophies from his various apps and other non- real apps and widgets. As we join him, Patrick is preparing for a date.

For a film to be sci-fi it really doesn't need to have lots of robots punching one another, it really just needs to be a little bit beyond where we are now and the better ones tend to be build on ideas and themes that are familiar. With Sight we very much have that as the makers have taken so much that is familiar and common, taken it really only a few steps into the future and then let the familiar situations plays out albeit in this extended reality. As was recently discussed by Charlie Brooker, social media has tended to "gamify" things and the "checking in", becoming Mayor, getting trophies for travel or for events etc is part of it, so this future doesn't seem too far-fetched. The build of this idea is very nice as we see it applied around the house but also through the date; it was very well done indeed and I was thoroughly held by this future.

Unfortunately the final few moments are not as good as the build. I get the message/idea but I thought it was rushed and that it relied too heavily on one piece of dialogue during the date; a little more subtlety or build in the conclusion would have been better. The direction of the technology is good and indeed the effects are "natural" even if the glazed eye look sort of got old without adding much beyond the idea being introduced. Performances are good – not great but good enough for a student film, although Golad and Aroshas were too blunt in some ways, not enough shape to their characters – although this is not all them.

Sight is full of great ideas and is an engaging and interesting bit of sci-fi, which is why it is a shame that the solid ending was not delivered in a more effective way.
