| 6-7/10 The Game (1997) meets Run Lola Run (1998) etc
In short: This is "The Game (1997)" adapted to the society we live in now (1984) with some extra (read; unnecessary) layers that makes it feel a little as inception. It tries to be several things, and it does quite a decent job at it. This is not a bad movie and for me it is a strong 6.

In long: The lighting is good, the editing is alright and you can't fault the soundscore. It really only misses a binding soundtrack and using one would negate the feel of reality of the movie (though urgency can be expressed with music quite well - Run Lola Run 1998, which is likely to be another movie that has inspired this movie).

The downside is that it has a somewhat weak ending (where the several layers come in and a badly hid undertone about who's surveilling the ones doing the surveillance in the first place) - which is out of place even though it is in line with the message - question what the reality is and how you affect it.

Pro's • Cast (unknown which is in line with the plot line) • Action sequences (and not forcing it on the movie every time possible) • Rationality is alright and better depicting the notion of what manipulation of actions has the potential to do.

Con's • Messy ending • Could build tension better • Acting performances aren't top notch ALL the time (which is important in building tension and urgency)

End notes: Not top notch but overall a solid watch.
