@ioioio I agree. Loved it when it came out.
This movie is literally extraordinary 8)
whoever made the trailer for this movie should be shot. I almost didn't watch the movie because of it but I'm glad i did. 8/10
Loved this movie as a kid, still love it today. One of the very few movies that glorifies hard work rather than special circumstance.
A good film that could have been great if it had strayed away from the crushing sentimentality. The dialogue is laughable in some key moments and its earnestness is its achilles heel. Overall the score is great (when it's not used to overly emphasize an emotion) the set design is wonderful, and Hawke and Law give good performances. There are so many missed opportunities in this film, however, one of which could have been more scenes with Elias Koteas as the father, but it's only one of many.
A look at Niccol's career since this film only serves to emphasize that he is, for lack of a better term, a SciFi cheesemeister. Watch The Host and you'll see definitive proof. Easily one of the worst mainstream SciFi films of the last few years.
9/10. Leaves me speechless everytime. And agreed all what mg_nificent said.
Agreed. Indicative of a pre-Orwellian dystopia, preluding to 1984?

A scary, yet realistic vision of the future combined with film noir aspects (the look of the thing! the murder case!). Interesting characters, loved the visuals, loved the ending, loved the music.
Yup, I think I have a new entry in my top 20.
***1/2 / ****
Uma obra interessante e que melhora com o passar do tempo.
