Welcome to the not-too-distant future, where implanted microchips record every single moment of a person's life. Upon death, it becomes the job of a "cutter" like Alan Hakman (Robin Williams) to edit down the deceased's entire lifetime into a fitting memorial film. For years, he has used his god-like power of final cut to absolve the dead of a multitude of sins. But when, on his latest assignment, he views a terrible secret that can't be erased, Hakman finds his own life in jeopardy in this riveting science fiction thriller.
hardly a block buster

If you are exepecting the next Blade Runner or Matrix then forget it. What we have here is an interesting idea, and to be fair it's reasonably well executed but falls flat.
Robin Williams performance is fine as is everyones but the lack of pace and not quite tight enough direction lets it down. Which is a shame as the plot idea is sound enough as stated. I wanted to give this 2 and a half stars but the marking here is a tad tricky to award a half. Try it if you want something different but just don't expect an action packed, special fx laden block buster.
