Wow.... [Code 46] is, while drawing on and inspired by classic films, utterly original, in a way that is particularly thrilling for fans of true science fiction movies.

Winterbottom and screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce sell the sci-fi but botch the interpersonal.

It's probably bad critical form to recommend a movie based largely on abstractions like 'vibe,' but Winterbottom does such a glorious job building his world that a certain breed of filmgoer can get punch-drunk lost in the pure cinema of it all.

A provocative, classy, low-key sci-fi tale that presents a world so within reach it's scary.

Lo siento, it's a violation of Code 47 to make a mediocre movie when you have stars of this caliber.

A love story clothed in a science-fiction plot that fails to warm us with sentiment or dazzle us with cold logic.

It's bracing when a movie honors an audience's intelligence, and Code 46 rewards us with a story that asks fascinating questions without pretending to have all the answers.

The disquieting and depressing sci-fi romance Code 46 is an interesting exercise, but the same can't always be said about it as a movie.

One of Michael Winterbottom's interesting failures--intriguing to look at but curiously hollow inside.

Given the 'Big Brother' promise that 'the Sphynx knows best,' this fusion of our sci-fi noir future and Ancient Greek tragic past looks not unlike our uneasy present.

...Winterbottom's main distinction is that he's able to be dull in a lot of different genres.

The atmosphere of the film is rich and meaningful while the story is frustratingly simple and superficial, almost an afterthought.

Robbins and Morton play star-crossed lovers, and they're among the most risible pair to grace the screen in quite some time.

It's a distinct, fully realized and fascinating world; it's the story Winterbottom places in the foreground that's unfulfilling.
