Not really Sci-Fi but more like...

Stylized REALITY. This was an astounding adventure. It took me a while to warm to it. I thought it was some millennium-angst type movie. But then it became more. And then more. It really should be seen by many more people who feel the claustrophobic terror of our information- age-cum-invaded-lives. Very few aspects were ultimately derivative or predictable. But these come after spending much time trying to understand what is going on. I am not a hacker-geek or any such thing, so there may be some things which others might scoff at such as computer language inaccuracies or any such dribble that has nothing to do with a good story, well told. Irrespective of that, just realize this really is about a dystopian society and it is fiction and it was so well made. Recommended.

OK if not predictable

Only chanced upon this movie so had no expectations and always ignore IMDb ratings. The high rating is given for the credible performance by Matthijs as Sam who shone in every scene. The storyline is not dissimilar to many where the opening scenes depict the lead actor waking up with no memory but it is was well told. It appeared predictable to me as I watch a lot of sci-fi genre movies and could see almost instantly from the opening scenes where the storyline and eventual ending was headed. I'll watch out for Matthijs as a potential lead who could easily make the transition to a big budget movie but can't say the same for any of the other wooden performances.

Surprisingly okay sci-fi movie!

I went to see this movie with low expectations; Dutch movies are normally not really my favorite, there are no Dutch sci-fi movies that I know of and the 'police-state' plot is also not really my taste. Imagine my surprise when I watched this movie and was actually entertained from beginning to end! The acting is very good, the dark atmosphere believable and the plot, though simple (or maybe because it's simple), keeps you at the edge of your seat at times. Plus I find it refreshing to see a science fiction movie without a million dollar budget for special effects; it leaves more for the story and characters and this movie has executed that very well. Not a blockbuster and I will probably not re-watch it, but I do recommend watching it to all sci-fi lovers out there :-)

Amazing!

A thrilling Dutch action movie, from beginning to the end. At the beginning the storyline looks a bit like the storyline from 'bourne identity' but after about 20 minutes it has lost that image. The locations were very beautiful and perfect for the movie. The actors did a good job and were well casted. Matthijs did a good job as Sam, and I liked Ella as Lara. The action scenes were awesome and the fighting was good. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this movie. I normally hate Dutch movies, always the same storyline, bad acting etcetera. But it was exciting from the start. It was thrilling from beginning to the end. For the first time in my life I really, really liked a Dutch movie! Good job Mr. Blok!
