This movie is bad science and bad fiction. It takes a fine Phillip K. Dick story, great sets, excellent cast and does a directorial belly flop. I have seldom seen more senseless camera movement and gratuitous cutaway shots. There are real inconsistencies in the story--for example, why don't androids dopplegangers have any memory of killing their real counterparts? Disorienting the audience, in the hands of a great director, can create powerful empathy with a character. This director merely achieved confusion and ambivalence. What makes this a particularly frustrating movie is that so much potential was wasted. If you watch the first 10 and the last 10 minutes of this, you will have seen the highlights. The vast body of the film is a particularly uninteresting chase. The ending could have had terrific power, but was wasted by the middle 80% of the film. Sinease produced this movie, so he must be partly held accountable for the dismal failure of this movie to intrigue, to thrill, or even to interest or entertain.
