A thoughtful hybrid of sci-fi, thriller, and character drama; to give you some idea of its high-mindedness, it not only opens with a relevant Bible verse (Ecclesiastes 7:13), but in the opening credits that follow, Gore Vidal is fifth-billed.

Among the very best of all the original "thoughtful" sci-fi movies out there.

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?

Intelligent and suspenseful.

July 5, 2006
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.

A cautionary tale of the dangers of unchecked technology, Gattaca would have benefited from a more assured directing hand.

It's not the meek who have inherited the Earth, but genetic freaks....this visionary science-fiction drama is a marvel of futuristic art and costume design on a spare budget.

A well-directed, visually stunning morally complex tale. There is no gene for a good movie.
