The hero's struggle in Gattaca would have been more compelling were he an average fellow going up against geniuses, and not a healthy fellow going up against somewhat healthier specimens.

It's a little ironic that his film, which boasts such an impressive art-house pedigree, has turned out as pallid and programmatic as the future world it abhors.

At a time when we read about cloned sheep and tomatoes crossed with fish, the science in Gattaca is theoretically possible.

Gattaca doesn't just function as a science fiction thriller, but as both a cautionary tale about the dangers of letting scientific ability outstrip ethics and as a morality play about the irrationality of bigotry.
