Now I know why Miramax didn't opt for a theatrical release.
The action takes place in a futuristic world that pits one large corporation against another. Morgan Sullivan is recruited to train for a position in espionage, spying on a rival company.
The premise is promising - a thoughtful scifi adventure that will expose the sinister side of corporate America. But the story fails on so many levels.
The Sullivan's assigments are more grunt work than espionage. It didn't make sense so the whole time I'm on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what is going on.
The twists in the plot turn the story in on itself, so that at the end you think "Huh?" When everything is said and done, there is no reason for the movie to have ever happened. I don't know how better to explain it without revealing lots of spoilers.
In a nutshell I'll never get those 95 minutes of my life back again.
Are there any films you recommend NOT watching?
