I cannot say I understand the hows and whys of this future world, nor do I much care, since it's mostly a clever backdrop to a love affair that would easily teleport to many other genres.

Flat, boring, pointless, and nonsensical.

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

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

A luxurious sight to behold.

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.

Commits a Code 1 violation: It's boring.

It's all very ambitious -- and thought-provoking. But, at only 92 minutes, one wishes the script had been further developed and the film executed with more clarity.

In a word: Confusing. But this is still fascinating filmmaking.

Code 46 offers false and confusing answers that lead to dead ends. It doesn't provoke thought afterwards; just gestalt.

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

A noirish romance, bathed in new age trance music and trippy golden light, Code 46 feels like Blade Runner on meds.
August 5, 2004
Robbins and Morton, both fine actors, have no chemistry whatsoever. Their love story may as well have been written by Jules Verne.

You don't need a crystal ball to see where the Frank Cottrell Boyce script is going.

For what is at heart a thriller, Code 46 lacks both energy and tension.

With all this intelligence in front of and behind the cameras, why then does Code 46 play like a William Gibson novel with all the juicy bits removed?
