ReelViews for movies starring 'Oscar Isaac'
Garland’s unwillingness to compromise has resulted in a film whose ideas and philosophy demand thought and dissection and are not easily dismissed or forgotten.
This is a cautionary tale about where technology could be leading and its low-key, claustrophobic approach lends an immediacy that many bigger, grander spectacles lack.
Although the movie’s strength occurs early in the proceedings, it tells a story worth being told.
Although at times overwrought and overtly manipulative, the film as a whole is like a kick to the gut.
