Interesting animated film set in the Paris of 2054 about a kidnapped scientist (Romola Garai), the former protege of a renowned geneticist (Ian Holm), who works for a sinister megacompany promising eternal youth and beauty, and the cop (voiced by Daniel Craig) assigned to rescue her, assisted by the woman's older sister (Catherine McCormack), who fends off the sinister forces of the company's vice president (Jonathan Pryce) with his own motives for finding her first. Director Christian Volckman's debut feature film -- basically a graphic novel come to life -- has a sometimes overly complex plot that, in its essentials, we've seen before, but the striking black-and-white design and committed acting by the prestigious voice talent hold your interest. Action violence, scenes of peril, murder, a brief nongraphic sexual scene, partial nudity elsewhere, some innuendo, and rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
