I got to see this movie, because it was recommended to me when I put on the sciene fiction filter and it also had a good rating.
Oh boy, was I disappointed. This movie isn't science fiction at all. Fiction at best, maybe. It has absolutely nothing, and I repeat nothing, to do with SCIENCE fiction. It is a fiction movie, a romance and if there was a main category to put it in, that would be esoteric.
Half way through the movie I realized that this film wasn't what I though it was and tried to enjoy it nonetheless. Unfortunately, even as a romance this film didn't deliver. It absolutely doesn't deserve its rating, neither as a romance nor as an esoteric thriller. If you compare it romance-whise to City of Angels, which has a relatively similar setting, you'd immediately see the shortcomings of this film and that it cannot compare. 7.0 is too much, I'd give it a close to 6 rating. In words: "Slightly above average", and that is only because of the acting.
Also I want to say that it's just sad to see a movie like Gattaca compared to this. Really, really sad. It almost makes me cry. ;(
