a visually striking, but emotionally flat mash-up of romantic drama, film noir, and science fiction that sounds much more interesting than it turns out to be

Disappointing sci-fi that's too intense for kids.

What keeps Code 46 from living up to its fascinating premise is the lack of empathy we feel for William and Maria. They are almost like benign video game characters.

Achingly elegiac sci-fi story of love and memory lost - an Oedipal tragedy for the genetically modified age.

Amid the white walls and slick surfaces of this film, the characters seem more like lab rats than human beings.

The film is like bypass surgery: clinically precise but always in control of your heart.
| Original Score: 4/5

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
September 30, 2004
Part thriller, part love story and part political allegory, told as dream noir, but too tangled and slippery to inspire much empathy.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

a noir snore with no moral desperation, no clear-cut point-of-view and a love story whose eroticism feels about as urgent as yardwork
| Original Score: 1.5/5

Original, intelligent, cool, aloof, and ultimately unforgettable.

Too much stoicism and not enough vulnerability -- OK for a futuristic film about a dystopian society, but not if you're supposed to feel the emotions of the main characters.

It's too bleak for the morose Robbins and doe-eyed Morton to connect meaningfully with each other or with us.

Winterbottom's sci-fi romance is in a class of its own. Robbins and Morton [are] clearly in their element here.

May be one of the most perfect cyberpunk films ever made.

Cinematography, production design and music are all top-notch, but the film largely succeeds because of the leads -- two fine actors at the top of their game.

It's hard to root for people who defy oppressive social systems when they can't seem to make sound decisions on their own.
