The Final Cut 2004

Final Cut

Critics Consensus

The Final Cut fails to make compelling use of its intriguing premise and talented cast, settling for a middling sci-fi drama that never justifies its pretensions.

    Technology is developed that allows recording of one's entire life. Why? So that once yer dead your relatives can make a memorial film clip of your life. While not the expected use of such capabilities it's the set-up for Williams to play a man whose job it is to shape those recorded lifetimes into Disney-fied music videos (cue Phillip Glass-like score). Problems herein include the predictable privacy concerns, a dead tech wizard's possibly incriminating and thus exploitable past, as well as Williams own personally troubling past. It's not bad insofar as a interesting sci-fi idea explored goes, but somehow fails to connect. Williams, Sorvino and Caviezel all perform well for the newbie director/writer Naim who only lacks focus IMO., delivering a tale nicely reminiscent of 1950's pulp sci-fi.

    A great performance by Robin Williams and a even greater plot. Makes THE FINAL CUT, a really good Sci-Fi/Drama worth at least one or two viewings.

    God, I hate Robin Williams! One of the world's most overrated actors is terribly pouty and rigid in THE FINAL CUT. He's not alone, though. Most of the top players in this film are awful as well. Between the script's huge deficiencies, the many plot holes, the underdeveloped characters and Fletcher's (Jim Caviezel) fake beard, the film fails miserably, even more so considering its alluring concept. The score by Bryan Tyler is incredible (and that's about it).

    Interesting concept with a somewhat anticlimactic ending. Robin Williams is understated and slightly creepy as the sin-eating cutter, and I always love Jim Caviezel.
