One of my pet peeves about futuristic movies is that some elements are so advanced, while others are ridiculously anachronistic. This film is set 300 years in a bleak future, but most people still dress like they’re living in the 80s and still ride in cars with drivers! As for the plot: an abandoned cyborg with Manga eyes (Rosa Salazar) it brought back on line by a kindly Christoph Waltz. Turns out she’s got super strength and fights with amazing skill. The clashes are directed with dizzying pace and inventive action by Robert Rodriguez. On the other hand, the dramatic interactions just lie there…dull and lifeless and it doesn’t help that the narrative is so trite. There are elements to enjoy in this sci-fi adventure, but it’s not destined to live in the annals of great ones (even though it ends poised for sequel).


3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)
