When I first saw it I was extremely disappointed it wasn't actually about pharmaceutical side effects. Then I saw it a second time and realized it's actually a really good little murder mystery.
There are no real surprises in this movie, but I do applaud the attempt to take on the relationship between healthcare and insurance companies. I also applaud Soderbergh's experimentation using his smart phone, but at some point I kind of forgot he was using a phone, so I'm not sure what it accomplished except to show budding film makers it could be done. It also lacked that Soderbergh feel. Compare it to SIDE EFFECTS and see how this film fares.
An anti-Romantic historical film. I find it relieving to see this type of interpretation of historical events. I tend to find them more believable and immersive. These people had some serious social-psychological problems.
The opening kicks into high gear with an economic crash and Luthor elected as president. Then it's a struggle for the heroes to keep going amidst determined enemies and allies and it ends with a bang. Fun to watch a few times.
This is like year one Batman in the repressed Victorian era. Batman with a little bit of steampunk. Would've liked to see more blacked-out silhouettes. Maybe alittle more exposition and quiet contemplation.
