THX-1138 is a film more about the cinema of light and sound telling a story than action and dialogue; though the last fifteen minutes of the film really speed up. The movie seems like a cross between 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, LOGAN'S RUN, and STAR WARS. Watching carefully, one can pick up on things that Lucas would later use and expand upon in STAR WARS.
As a movie, THX-1138 is rather boring. As a piece of cinema, it's worth watching because it was George Lucas first film and clearly had an influence upon how he made STAR WARS. Also, if you're a 2001 fan, you'll probably enjoy this movie. However, definitely not for everyone.
