Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Since One Hour Photo, Robin Williams seems to have gone out of his way to lose his motormouth persona and here he delivers another performance of subtle understatement. In this intriguing futuristic thriller, Williams is a "cutter", whose job is to splice together - and usually airbrush - the memories of the recently deceased into a visual tribute of the dead person's life for friends and family. However, an assignment to work on the life of one of the key executives involved in the controversial memory technology not only attracts the attention of opponents of the process - led by former cutter Jim Caviezel - but reawakens some buried secrets of his own. As good as Williams is, writer/director Omar Naim never really exploits the full potential of what is a fascinating idea and, while it looks good, this eventually runs out of steam.
