The Final Cut Reviews

April 29, 2009
A sleepy, boring, and utterly forgettable thriller...
September 22, 2006
Most significantly, the film underscores the fact that the meaning of our lives ultimately comes from somewhere outside of ourselves.

Robin Williams edita con estoica convicción, los pecados de los hombres.

A solid thriller through most of its 105-minute run. Sadly, the film comes to a sudden, and dissatisfying, halt.

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.

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.

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.

March 13, 2005
Reminiscent of science fiction cautionary tales like Gattaca and anything written by Philip K. Dick, The Final Cut is a must-see.
November 8, 2004
I'm frankly amazed the foolish, cheap-looking thing didn't go straight to the Sci-Fi Channel.

Forgive me, but The Final Cut should really be the one where you turn off the camera and go do something far more interesting; like maybe taking out the garbage.

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.

It's a thoughtful, multi-layered film that falls a bit short of its goals on all fronts.

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.

It's not quite as smart as it thinks it is.
October 19, 2004
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.
October 17, 2004
An original idea but too dark--not the story, but the set.

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.
