"..A GOOD SCI-FI GEM.."
Verified purchase
This review is for the film and the German Steelbook Blu-ray release.

PLOT...
In a world without anonymity or crime, a detective meets a woman who threatens their security.

Anon is a nice easy simplistic watch, a small sci-fi gem that has great ideas and gives you plenty to think about, no big lavish effects and ships and explosions, just good simple story telling with interesting characters and concept, the movie visualy still looks really nice and gives us a hint of what the future could be like with our privacy on the line. The cast is all great, Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried are good in their performances, from the director of In Time (also starring Amanda Seyfried) worth checking out if you love a slow pace but good looking sc-fi with a who done it story, this movie i should imagine went very underrated.

The Blu-ray looks good in HD
Features include several interviews with cast and makers (over an hour, English) trailer.
Region B plays in the UK. Running time 100mins. 2018.
Plays in the original English language audio, and German. Subtitles can be turned off.
The steelbook is very nice front and back and makes a good addition to the collection.

Futuristic and creepily awesome 🤪😱😬

This is a bit of a "Marmite" film; As with Marmite, you will either like this film, or absolutely hate it. I like the film, but I don't like Marmite 🙄😋🤢🤮
I've heard some very mixed reviews about the "functionality" of this film; Some people have said that "Clive Owen is an acting plank in this film" - It all comes down to personal taste and interpretation.
A very futuristic Sci-fi film, with some great special effects, a world without anonymity where you can't get away with anything. It represents what may well be possible in a not too far away future, within a world of artificial intelligence and technology. A very strange, but very believable futuristic thriller.
If you think that we currently live in a world where we experience way too much intrusion into our lives and there's an attitude whereby "big brother is watching your every move via search engines, CCTV & fingerprints being mined via your Smartphone technology", this is only the start of a very creepy future, exceptionally portrayed in this film. 🤪🤔😱😎

I just loved the ideas in this film, what happens when everything is known? Subtle but brilliant performances from all the cast. I was captivated from the start.

So disappointed
Verified purchase
So excited to finally get to watch this movie. It only appeared at a local cinema for a very short time and we missed it.
I even could not find it in Netflix which was weird as I was led to believe it was a Netflix produced movie (I registered for the 1 month trial specifically for this movie).

Anyway...the movie itself.
It started a little interestingly, resembling Person of Interest in places, for us this was a good thing.
It was however, unfortunately, very slow with seemingly no direction.

The plot:
Augmented reality is a human state and every moment of a life is recorded for analysis. Human memory but without the human actually remembering part, i.e, memory is a hard drive.
Sigfried's character is a hacker that can remove unwanted memories. These hard drive memories are available to view by anyone and are recorded as if eyes are cameras and ears are nice ect.
Anyway the premise is for Clive Owens character (detective) to catch Siegfried in the act of deleting memory by presenting himself as bait, or in this case, a customer wanting to remove the memory of paying for sex so that his wife could not view the memory.
When the trap is realised the augmented reality within is hacked and basically becomes a bad trip, things aren't real, cars disappear and the memory of a lost son is lost....

Sounds really good, should have been.
Wasn't really produced well. Ham is a good way to describe Owens performance and poor Sigfried tried in a role that could have suited her.
Also, the obligatory sex scene was a little ugly and made me feel a little sick......grandpa/granddaughter comes to mind.

Take your chances with this movie, I had expectations and it missed all of them by a lot.

2 stars as the idea could have worked. Not sure what is 'proof reading' for movies, but maybe the editor could have spoken up....

Watchdogs the movie?!
Verified purchase
Lots of cool hacking tech, makes me think of things like the Watchdogs games except its a fairly pedestrian murder mystery / whodunnit under all that. Not sure if that is much of a bad thing, any more of the tech and it would have been Transcendence or Mr Robot. Probably only a 3-4 star movie really but its a fun glimpse into our future ... next week. Yay life is already a dystopian nightmare and we're all doomed ... more tech movies to keep us amused until then!

Clever film that made me think
Verified purchase
I liked the look of the film, the futuristic greys and dullness. It introduces a dark side to what the future might bring as regards law enforcement and a new dimension as to where there may be lack of control (or perhaps more) depending on what perspective you look at.

The sex and violence is not overbearing and the plot follows a plausible path in my opinion. It's a serious film, no real comedy but interesting. I would compare it to an episode of Black Mirror with a bit of a Hollywood twist which is no insult.

I would recommend this to a friend. It's not too long and plays out at a good pace. I didn't get bored and that's quite unusual for me.

Worth it for a rent :)

A lovely sci-fi gem
Verified purchase
A delightful little find- there’s plenty of action, the direction is pacy, the acting professional and, important in sci-fi, believable.
I don’t really get with the negativity on this one. If you like your cinema spoon fed, it’s not for you. But if you like having a little think about things, give it a go. 7.5/10

Anon - more like annoying
Verified purchase
Decent tech thriller, with original content, but the main selling point and screen format where everyones digital
Footprint is connected to the ether, which allows the police and others to trace and playback every move is recorded, became so annoying I only managed 45 mins before switching off.
