Quotes

Board Member: Now, this technology... We've read the literature, classification is proving difficult. Can you tell us how it differs from other controlled substances?
Ren Amari: To begin with, it's not a drug. It's...
Board Member: Biological software. You program new memories.
Ren Amari: We create experiences. Indistinguishable from the real thing. As far as the brain is concerned, fantasy and reality are chemically identical.

So much potential ruined by one plot twist too many
17 February 2018 | by ajpingSee all my reviews

This was a rock solid film until the producers ruined it about 3/4 of the way through with a nonsensical ending. Interesting sci fi, believable characters, an awesome plot twist a third of the way through the film, and decent acting. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised at how good the film was until it went off the rails.

However, the ending was incredibly frustrating because of how unbelievably silly it was, totally destroying all the good work built up over the first part of the film. Sad, sad, sad! It could've been an excellent film!
