During filming, Maximilien Poullein insisted on meeting Jane Badler even though they shared no scene together. Indeed, as a kid, Poullein was so afraid of Badler's role in V (1984) he did not even want to wear green because that was the skin color of the "lizards from outer space" in the TV series. See more »
Those who compare it with Blade Runner are clueless simpletons. The concept is fantastic. In 2047 most people are connected and on universal basic income, no worries about real-life concerns.
The execution, however, is poor and wastes an opportunity to make film history, no exaggeration here. Acting is generally ok, and actually it is good from the main and supporting roles.
However, the screenwriting is severely lacking, and drags everything down. This movie should be structured around the dilemma of whether to free or not the connected people (possibly against their will), and, secondly, on the truth about the protagonist's wife. But we only get a couple of hasty minutes of these themes, and instead *a lot* of exposition on the protagonist's online quests (which I was skipping), which was worthless beyond some point. So much screen time was wasted. The culmination of the movie should undoubtedly be the hacking attempt of the megacorp HQs, but this was also hastily presented in a couple of minutes. .Such a wasted opportunity for an awesome film climax..!
Still, 7/10 for the nice concept and the effort.
