Absurd. What a disappointment. I love Cyberpunk and was looking forward to this... Not even Forest and Liev could save this awful, awful script. Some of the black humor was witty, the premise was super interesting, but the absurdity of it all... A waste.
Wasn't expecting to like this one nearly as much as I did. It manages to meld some compelling science-fiction ideas and explosive action with heavy doses of dark humor, aided immeasurably by a strong cast giving it their all. Not for all tastes, but as far as slick Hollywood sci-fi action thrillers go, this one was a very pleasant surprise.
I liked the utter insanity of it all, especially the none too subtle commentary on the health care system, but it was a haphazard film. Having two high-caliber actors in the lead roles could have made this a fun experience, but they held back for the sake of cheap entertainment.
A great parody of capitalism gone wild. Once Remy developed a conscience it slumped a bit, but picked it up again soon after. I would have liked some more silliness since it started in that direction, but having bankers literally take their pound of flesh was still pretty good to watch.
this movie started out really cool; then got really muddy, like they wanted you to know what happened, but they didn't want to film it; then it got cool again, or did it... then a bunch of really stupid stuff happened, followed by some really cool ideas and an Oldboy homage/maybe rip, followed by a incredibly stupid ending that was telegraphed about a third of the way through the movie. so much potential, though.
