We gave it a B-

In a future in which parents can tailor their unborn children to precise specs, Ethan Hawke impersonates one of the genetic elite so he can realize his dream of space travel. Andrew Niccol?s cautionary parable is in the tradition of Big Think sci-fi like George Lucas? THX 1138. Sets, music, and imagery are rigorously controlled and undeniably stunning, but after a while flaws creep into the plot?s double helix.
