In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage - a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the system.
In the wake of humanity's extinction, a teenage girl is raised by a robot designed to repopulate the earth. But their unique bond is threatened when an inexplicable stranger arrives with alarming news.
For anyone who has seen Gattaca, you will probably know what to expect from Anon - an original take on the future, but one that is also grounded in topical issues, in this instance issues around data privacy.
Has many similar themes and echoes of Minority reports, although the direction is quite considered. This really helps to build the sense of a dystopian world that is reminiscent of Orwell's 1984, but as a result it doesn't have the pace of Spielberg's movie.
Not Niccol's best, but it's very watchable and has some really interesting ideas that will stay with you after the movie has finished
Ignore some of the other reviews on here. Ridiculous to judge a movie on the basis someone is smoking indoors.
