Dolf Lundgren gives the best performance in this movie in his role as Street Preacher. The others just seemed to walk on set and say their lines at given times. The portrayals lacked credibility. Dina Meyer is no Milla Jovovich; she was not convincing as a bodyguard. I wouldn't have trusted the guy playing the doctor to remove a splinter much less do brain surgery. It seemed strange to see Detective Tutuola (Ice T) show up once in a while with a weird hair-do.

The sets were minimal but the special effects (at times) were entrancing. If the blurbs had not given it away I may not have recognized the Montreal shot scenes. Can't say I had much appreciation for the plot and execution. Glad it was over.

Not As Bad As...

A data courier (Keanu Reeves), literally carrying a data package inside his head, must deliver it before he dies from the burden or is killed by the Yakuza.

Author William Gibson said, "Basically what happened was it was taken away and re-cut by the American distributor in the last month of its pre-release life, and it went from being a very funny, very alternative piece of work to being something that had been very unsuccessfully chopped and cut into something more mainstream." That is a fairly understanding position from the author.

Truthfully, this is not that bad of a movie. While maybe not as great as it could be, it works well as a 1990s futuristic thriller. The ideas are interesting, and it is even more interesting considering that Reeves went on to star in "The Matrix", which has a similar feel in many ways.

Interesting note: This was Dolph Lundgren's last theatrically released film until 2010's "The Expendables". What an unfortunate 15 years that was for all the cinema fans.

A below average Sci-Fi Movie

In a dystopian world where half the people of the world suffered from an incurable disease, a highly trained agent must deliver one last package of information stored inside his brain before it gets into the wrong hands.

It's a movie which displays a futuristic story of an agent who could store vast amount of data into his brain, data that must be delivered safely to the recipient before complete neuronal damage and of course, irreversible data loss. It has an interesting idea, one that maintains a good level of interest and suspense, but unfortunately doesn't stand up as much as it could due to its implementation. It might have been due to technological limitations, taking into consideration the production year, but you cannot miss the final product which simply doesn't provide a credible and truly dramatic atmosphere. The dialog also doesn't do much service to this movie, as its lack of complexity and average sound prove to be quite a letdown.

In terms of plot, it is pretty coherent, but also simplistic and predictable, leaving almost no room for any interpretation. Thus, it is linear and doesn't do much to lift the quality of the movie. The actors did a decent job but also nothing out of the ordinary, while the characters portrayed are on par with the rest of the movie, being basically described and unsympathetic, their fate leaving little to care for from the viewer.

Overall, it's a movie set in a futuristic world, one which could have provided a lot more, but failed to do so from every point of view. It leaves the impression that it was rushed, that it wasn't given enough time to fully accomplish what it had proposed to do, thus the result leaves much to desire.
