This movie featured De Niro for about five minutes as an outlaw handyman that fixes the main guy's air conditioning. I don't know how much i liked this movie - actually not very much - but it was mostly because I really hated the main guy, Sam. He just didn't seem likeable, and i didn't really care that much that he was going to be tortured, which I probably should've. He was so wishy washy and irritating. Daniel didn't care for the 'love interest' in this movie because apparently girls in dungarees with lesbian haircuts don't do it for him.
One reviewer says the movie is "beautifully realised, often hilarious and utterly horrifying, not least because it has turned out to be so prophetic," but I'd have to disagree. This is your typical sci-fi dystopian plot, a bureaucratic society gone wrong. It did look nice though. The one thing i kept wondering during the movie was, 'is that Mona from 'Who's the boss?'' and it was.
