A sleepy, boring, and utterly forgettable thriller...
Most significantly, the film underscores the fact that the meaning of our lives ultimately comes from somewhere outside of ourselves.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Robin Williams edita con estoica convicción, los pecados de los hombres.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A solid thriller through most of its 105-minute run. Sadly, the film comes to a sudden, and dissatisfying, halt.
| Original Score: C+
O melhor aspecto do filme reside na maneira inteligente com que discute as implicações sociais e morais de sua premissa - a marca registrada de toda boa ficção científica.
| Original Score: 4/5
If the ending is predictable and even anti-climactic, chalk it up to a first effort. The rest of the film, brilliantly shot by Tak Fujimoto, is worth a look-see.
The message of The Final Cut is clear: memories can't be trusted, and neither can Canadians.
| Original Score: 2/5
Naim's script is intelligent, but not always easy to follow. It is an example of a fully adult science fiction film and one that does not require any special effects.
| Original Score: 8/10
Reminiscent of science fiction cautionary tales like Gattaca and anything written by Philip K. Dick, The Final Cut is a must-see.
I'm frankly amazed the foolish, cheap-looking thing didn't go straight to the Sci-Fi Channel.
Everything of minor interest in the piece (and Williams' late career) is crystallized in the lyrics to the maudlin Pink Floyd song that bears this film's name.
| Original Score: 1/4
It's a thoughtful, multi-layered film that falls a bit short of its goals on all fronts.
| Original Score: 3/4
Final Cut will burrow into your psyche and make you wonder. It's a smart, dark, glimpse into cerebral science's possible paths and the menacing state of civil rights' future.
| Original Score: 4/4
It's not quite as smart as it thinks it is.
Naim's direction is as pedestrian as his screenplay, and his inexperience at working with actors surfaces in the one-note performances.
It's nice to see Mira Sorvino who has sort of wobbled about since winning the Oscar about ten years ago she is very good in this film.
An original idea but too dark--not the story, but the set.
| Original Score: B-
Williams has extraordinary success in channeling this other person. How strange that the same actor can play some of the most uninhibited of all characters, and some of the most morose.
Naim has created a low-key mood piece that should have been more cutting.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Writer/director Omar Naim succumbs to most of the pitfalls of mediocre science fiction, inventing a 'dehumanizing' technology that's patently preposterous and then prodding us into getting all flustered about it.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
