Final Cut, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Gloomy sci-fi thriller set in a future where humans can have memory chips implanted at birth which record their entire lives and which are edited into sanitized memorial films to be shown at their funerals. The story centers on the best editor -- or "cutter" -- in the business (Robin Williams), who becomes entangled in a dangerous game with a former associate (Jim Caviezel) over the implant of a corrupt corporate bigwig. Directed by Omar Naim, the film raises some intriguing ethical questions but is weighed down by its cheerless performances and slumberous pacing. Brief violence, an implied sexual encounter and some crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
