When Helena is learning to use chopsticks with Alex, the outdoor cafe they are at is an homage to the scene in Blade Runner, when Deckard(Ford) is having noodles. Raining, outside cafe, night, a lot of functional neon as lighting. The director even threw in a clear umbrella that was the predominant umbrella used in Blase Runner. See more »
This was a fairly good little sci thriller with a little bit of everything. There was a dash of suspense, some romance, and even a little Tom Cruise style action where people were running around. The ending wasn't perfect, but I liked how it wasn't dumbed down for the audience. That's a rare thing in today's cinema, and this "you either get it or you don't" attitude has endeared this director to me. The acting was good enough for a movie of this nature, and Clara Lago's performance was memorably good. Overall, I'd say this film deserves a solid 7, but I'm giving it a 10 because it deserves to have a higher average. At the time of writing this review, Orbiter 9 has a 5,5 and suicide squad has a 6.2 on IMDb. That's not right people. That's not right at all.
