This is definitely a forgotten classic that many don't even know about. Kathryn Bigelow's Strange Days is a mesmerising train ride that people, especially moviegoers, should see. It is a movie that no one should skip.

Story about a man who sells others people's realities with artificial intelligence. I loved the movie's story. The acting by Ralph Fiennes is good. But the directing is terrible. Half the time I was wondering when it was going to become a music video.

Great movie. While its story might not reach all of the thematic heights it seeks to reach, it's certainly an intriguing plot that is supported by phenomenal direction from Bigelow, including some of the earliest and most realistic uses of POV in film, as well as fantastic performances from its cast, especially Fiennes and Bassett.

Set in LA at the end of the century, this morality tales showed again the main problem in the director's work: The great divide between simplistic plots and technical sophistication.

After watching the trailer (which was such a rush), I had to see this film and I did! Directed by Katherine Bigelow, "Strange Days" features lots of fast paced action, great acting, pretty cool music (especially toward the ending), and a very interesting/engaging story of the mysterious murder of a prostitute involving SQUID discs (devices that record a person's memories and physical sensations that users experience), all set in a then-futuristic, yet chaotic Los Angeles. An underrated science fiction film, "Strange Days" will leave you entertained!

Nicely filmed and overall an entertaining movie. A little slow and the plot is a little thin at times.

Still holds up pretty well.

A cyberpunk classic that effected the genre even today.

Somewhere in the future which is now the past, a unique product can be sourced, it works in theories and the characters are likeable, but film drags for something that is not that complicated.

This is a pretty underrated movie that's pretty fucking awesome. Angela Bassett was a badass in this flick and the end of the millennium setting makes for a good set piece.

The mid-90s were filled with some awful attempts at virtual reality thrillers (e.g. "Virtuosity"). This one, overlooked at the time, is one of the better ones. A bit clichéd at times, it's well acted and has a smart approach to VR. The opening shot (one long POV shot) is some masterful filmmaking.

I enjoyed this fascinating punk sci-fi movie immensely a couple of times!
Refreshing untypical characters of Fiennes and Bassett, Angela Bassets super cool action heroine and Fiennes as a "homeless" dog anti hero,,
I never thought this film was longer than the average movies!

Alright if you want to pass some time. Nothing too memorable. The effects are kind of cool and the grunge is a good touch. However, it's just kind of poorly acted. However, it's fun and suspenseful.

Alright if you want to pass some time. Creative and suspenseful.

Cool sci-fi setting. Ages reasonably well. Very predictable and formulaic plot developments.

A grifter has tapes of homicides in this weird but entertaining sci-fi flick. Director Kathryn Bigelow's finished product is visually interesting and the action is fast and smooth.
