Denise Dal Vera,
A daring synthetic biologist, after a car accident kills his family, will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force and the physical laws of science.
I honestly just don't know where to begin. I think I'm just going to ask... how did a script like this get made. How. This is beyond mind boggling. A script so incredibly bad that it brings down pretty cool production design, cinematography and acting to an embarrassing level. This quite literally feels like a 5 year old child wanted to write a science fiction movie. Everything about the story, the dialog, the sci fi conceptual framework, it was all written horribly. Wish I could be more positive here and forgiving like I am with nearly every movie I see but this was confusingly bad. I don't understand how a script in this condition could possibly get made. Keanu Reeves and the production team are certainly not at fault here, they did what they could with such an embarrassingly bad story.
