Johnny Depp and science fiction are two of my favorite things, which is why I was so looking forward to this film since the beginning of the year. Alas, despite a great cast including Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, and Kate Mara, a big budget, and a premise that feeds on our growing concerns about where technology is taking us, this one really disappoints. While there are some interesting ideas present, the fact is it's boring. I expect that poor word of mouth will make this one a box office disaster. And that's a shame. Johnny, Johnny, Johnny.
Who is this movie for? Sci-fi nuts with low standards.
