7 | Competent film with unexploited potential, but satisfying nonetheless
I tend to be curious every time a talented filmmaker gets to direct a film set in a pessimistic future/post-apocalyptic...
The character of Delacourt was originally written for a man.
In the late 21st century Earth was diseased, polluted and vastly overpopulated.
When Max gets trapped in the droid chamber and suffers a lethal dose of radiation, the procedure stops immediately when the system detects organic tissue in the chamber. Even by today's strict industrial security standards, the human worker should have been recognized BEFORE the chamber was fired up and the sequence would not have initiated at all.
In the soundtrack part of the end titles it says:
"Piano Concerto No. 8 in C minor 'Pathetique' - Adagio Cantabile Written by Ludwig van Beethoven"
L. v. Beethoven wrote only five piano concertos (his eighth piano sonata is titled "Pathetique" however).
