Critic Reviews for Gattaca
I didn't care enough about Hawke's character to ignore a big problem in the story's logic: if this future has such incredible biotechnology, why can't Law just get his damaged body parts fixed?
One of first Hollywood films about the effects of genetic engineering on human conduct, Andrew Niccol's directing debut is an intelligent and timely sci-fi that, despite some illogical plot contrivances, is emotionally engaging almost up to the end.
Designer babies rule dystopia in stylish SF thriller filled with recycled plot devices.
It predicts the way the world would change in 2001--and how our films would reflect that change.
Ripe for reappraisal...the storytelling integrity and thoughtful themes of a good novel.
Audience Reviews for Gattaca
An amzing sci fi classic. Hawke and Thurman shine. The whole idea of gene manipulation in the future is such a scary storyline.
Little known film with big actors and an intriguing story-line.
|Detective Hugo:||I was also in the Slums of Beverly HIlls.|
|Vincent Freeman:||Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star.|
|Vincent Freeman:||For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I'm suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I'm not leaving... maybe I'm going home.|
|Jerome Morrow:||I got the better end of the deal. I only lent you my body - you lent me your dream.|
