Movie reviews for Gattaca

2009-05-11  Peter Buchardt: 9 out of 10
THE BEST SCI-FI DRAMA I'VE SEEN YET. Maybe Children of Men hits the same marker, but that'll have to show when I decide to review it :)

Seriously this is a great movie. The way they portrait the future, heavily inspired by the 60's and 70's is so believable, and Hawke, Thurmans and Law's performances are just World Class.

I kind of thought this was a spaceship-kind-of-movie, but no no no, it's a true drama, taking place right here, just in a few years. They raise the issue of genetic engineering, and how it could influence our view on "the perfect human". There's some twists in the end that I didn't like too much, but heck with all the other being such a great f*cking I can take that.

Rent it, buy it or what ever you need to do, but make sure you watch this movie.
