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.

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.

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.

Reminiscent of science fiction cautionary tales like Gattaca and anything written by Philip K. Dick, The Final Cut is a must-see.

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 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.

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.

Maybe it's the small budget, but Cut scores points for making the future look pleasingly like next week and touching on topics of memory and personal responsibility.

It's a dark and thought-provoking exploration of where our strange marriage of voyeurism and self-absorption may lead us just a few years from now.

A movie that goes a long way on the strength of its unique premise, steady performances and impressive visual style.

The concept of The Final Cut is so fascinating and has so many implications that it balances out some real flaws in the story.
