More philosophy than sci-fi, true, but not lacking in the sci either

So, a lot of people went into this movie expecting to be dazzled by hi- tech conceptualizations of the future, and were disappointed. That's understandable. The tech is a background at best, although every character does seem to blend seamlessly with it. It is a background that is tastefully crafted, realistically employed and never flickers.

To add insult to injury, however, the 2 hour hypotech is stuffed with sentimentality and philosophy, rather than action and sex, as many sci- fi's are. For most people, action and sex are a far better filler than the heartfelt musings of a struggling soul, regardless of the context.

For those of us not seeking to escape to the future, we were treated to a salient, cerebral wine-tasting, of sorts...and a sobering one at that. The film seems to offer up so many spiritual, cultural messages, from so many vantage points, that it's impossible to label one bottle and drink from it. For the single-minded it's a mess. For others, it's an awakening to new flavors of suffering, and a perversion of our taste buds. Some things, once sweet on our tongue, now stain with an aftertaste. Other drinks, like death, may now crisply tinkle in the glass and repel us a bit less.

All I'm saying is that this film is more art than entertainment. Some people drink wine to get drunk and have sex. Others sip it carefully to explore its variety. Realive is certainly a film for the sipping class.

Something in recent sci-fi that's not completely ridiculous

Something of a mood piece leaning toward gattica over trek in styling and pace, it's a good one to watch when you've seen almost everything and have a cold or for whatever reason get stuck indoors. It's more mature sci-fi instead of talking rodents and giant smurfs.

Considering a movie has such a short time to convey complicated ideas, this film is put together well and shoots and hits at more of those targets than one would expect.

Presentation is good on all fronts. The lead role could have been written for anyone really, male or female and they had to choose one particular lifestyle to represent the story and the one they chose was OK, but some wont like it.

This is a movie that could have gone longer in many directions. The actual science of it all was done well and can serve as an example of a direction that could have gone longer. That's what a good movie does. Makes you want more.

A once watch flick that makes an impact. I'll buy it for the box art and put it on my recommend list.

Better Than a Sleeping Pill!

I've seen a lot of movies in my 65 years, but only a small handful where I yearned for the ending to finally arrive, as I did with this snoozer!

I wanted to treat myself tonight with an entertaining movie, and had a choice between Realive and Babe (yes, the one about the little pig). Oh, how I wish I'd chosen the latter!

It moved in sloth motion. There wasn't a single exciting moment or climax in the entire film, save for the very ending, which you might miss if you blink. There was repetitive overkill. I felt no interest in or connection to the lackluster protagonist at any time. The only character that I did find interesting was the doctor.

Evidently there are some people who actually enjoy monotonous, depressing, movies with the philosophical musings of a narrator. If you're one of them, and you don't have ADD, then this flick's for you! For everyone else, you might want to rent Babe, or any of 10,000 other movies that actually have charismatic characters, some manner of movement, changes of scenery, and a compelling storyline.
