Trivia

Jessie, in a red dress, appears whenever Quint takes a red pill. Similarly, by taking the blue pill, Quint is able to invoke Miles and Flora, who are later revealed to have been frozen all along, and are represented throughout by the color blue. The red and blue pills were also intended to serve as a homage to The Matrix (1999). See more »

Same family as Gattaca and The Fly
19 May 2018 | by sccsccrk128See all my reviews

If you like hard sci-fi with new concepts and the guts to follow the story to some really hard places, then this is the movie for you. Don't expect a cheery uplifting story but if you want to be challenged and provoked - watch this movie, i have deduced a point because their lack of budget shows in places
