Good sci-fi romp with an interesting premise that is squandered in favour for a lot of running and shooting. Rapace puts in a very good performance and it's unfortunate for her that the rest of the casting is pretty weak. The action is pretty basic and effective but the visual style and production design should have been better. The plot keeps you on your toes but is let down by Wirkola´s workmanlike direction.
The future of biopolitics is an Apple Smartwatch. No, wait, it's the present: surveillance, knowledge/power, and technologies of the self. Wirkola paints a realistic portrait of a bureaucratized, neoliberal Europe taking a clue from Michel Foucault and the Club of Rome, subverting the narrative of The Handmaid's Tale/Children of Men: overpopulation and not mass sterility is the enemy.
Enjoyable enough sci-fi romp with a script that doesn't bear any scrutiny whatsoever. Noomi Rapace tries to pull off seven different characters with little success and one wonders if Glenn Close needs a new agent.
More on-screen talent than it deserved (i.e. Noomi Rapace). An interesting premise, the dramatic potential of which Wirkola sadly sacrificed in favour of a series of mundane and predictable action sequences.
A somewhat interesting concept in a mildly interesting (but ultimately bland) setting with a few easy to spot twists and more on-screen talent than it deserved. Watchable once but pretty forgettable overall.
Lot things discussed. It's not just about having a 7 identical twins. I see also a political issue and discuss things that have started happening now. The issue that there are fewer rooms on earth and world food has become one of the concerns that are discussed. At the end of the story I hope that life will continue to run as it's set but a happy story makes us all able to assume all problems can be solved by love
