Nice To Look At But LIttle Else
For the most part, this movie offers absolutely nothing new and besides its great photography and set design, the story becomes pretty less than exciting with a disappointing use of the artificial enhancement sci fi genre. The characters are strangely flat and artificial, below par editing and scene placement, and the movie begins to drag along with some inexplicable storyline devices. This is one movie rises expectation only to disappoint and one to be avoided. From the odd title, "The Wheel," to creepy interviews, unnecessary sadistic encounters better left for Cube (1997). Much better offerings include Gattaca (1997), Ghost in the Shell (2017) based on the classic anima version regarding human brains in a synthetic body has a much more aesthetic flow of events as well as implied and more acceptable assumptions about characters' behavior, feelings, and performances, Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) also incorporates an enhanced human being but with more established assassin martial arts and sharp credible lethality movies that makes for an much more sustained, thrilling, enjoyable experience, and Lucy (2014) actually offered a much better way to address artificial augmentation and could have provided this movie with a much more compelling and acceptable storyline resolution.
