Starts up painfully awful, finishes off magistrally


Gotta be honest, i only watched this because of Keanu and by the minute 12 or so i really really wanted to stop but i try to stick with it and it went pretty good i´d say, weirdly good enough.

It was certainly unexpected - a "deal with the devil" story where the protagonist gets everything he wants and ... that's all

Yes the first part was horrible. Keanu(?)'s motivation, reasoning, and their execution of the entire process. Once we got past that, the movie was alright.

I was surprised where they took it. Thought for sure it was going to be the generic the replicas have glitches and are evil plot, but it didn't. I wish they would have expended on some of the themes and characters though. I mean Alice Eve is fantastic to look at and all, but she really did nothing other than question his morality in the beginning for about two seconds. Overall, not bad.
