Comments

Slow and boring. Tries to look futuristic by showing us all the details of the amazing technology, every lever, switch, button, and fancy machine for half the movie except it is all boring by today's standards. The technology is 50 years old. Yawn ! The acting is dry and without passion. Plot has an intriguing idea but is shallow in the execution.
